Thank you very much for taking the time to reach the Intel Communities Team, seawolf21. I will do my best to assist you further.

 

 

When the Brand String test fails, it is basically that the processor's name was not recognized by the Intel® Processor Diagnostics Tool. Please refer to the https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/processors/sb/theintelprocessordiagnostict... Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool User Guide page 20.

 

This does not mean that your processor is defective. In order to complete the test on the IPDT go Tools > Stop Testing On Fail > Off.

 

 

Can you please provide us the model of your processor and motherboard?

This thread is more than two years old.

For your processor E7200, it is going to fail on Brand String test as your processor is simply too old.

Ignore the error - there is nothing wrong.
