I have the same issue with i3 2100T.
After disabling hardware acceleration (setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Direct3D\Drivers\\SoftwareOnly to 1) winsat does not hang anymore, but DirectX applications still do not work.
My OS: Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x32 (the same issue was on x64)
CPU: i3 2100e
MB: Foxconn h67s
RAM: 2Gb PC3-10666 1333MHz Silicon Power
Video driver version: 22.214.171.1242
DirectX version: 11
I've just tried to run winsat from cmd using the "winsat d3d". The system freezes on the folowing lines:C:\>winsat d3dWindows System Assessment Tool> Running: Feature Enumeration ''> Run Time 00:00:00.00> Running: WinSAT Direct3D Assessment '-aname Batch -time 5 -fbc 10 -disp off -animate 10 -width 1280 -height 1024 -totalobj 300 -batchcnt C(10) -objs C(26) -rendertotex 6 -rtdelta 3 -texpobj C(1)'> Assessing DirectX Batch Performance
I reinstalled Windows twice (Win7 x32 and x64), tried different versions of video driver (one from the mother board's CD and 2 downloaded from the Intel support site) - nothing helps. I believe there is an issue in the Intel's graphics driver. How could I report this issue to the Intel's driver developers?
What version of WinSAT are you using?
Same issue on Windows 7 Ultimate (with or without sp1) ,
motherboard ECS h61-h2-m3 Intel HD Graphics 2000, freeze randomly but always on WINSAT D3D command.
No answers from Intel?
There is no any answers, explanations, recommendations, etc.
We are all alone with our problems.
Only corporate customers have some possibilities to report about issues (for example, online live support) but no end users.
As we can see intel corei3 with hd graphics 2000 is very very raw solution.
How this mighty corporation decided to distribute this raw product line - I can't understand.
Finally, I've resolved this issus by flashing new BIOS!
