Error message: "Internal Timer Error detected". ..."detected a 1.48s difference between the clock and the high-resolution timer..."
I've seen this error discussed in older posts, but couldn't find any resolution. I have a new Dell Precision system, no overclocking.

    Hi Jim,

    I'm sorry to hear that you encountered this issue. Would you mind providing the the version number of Geekbench, the test that you were performing, and whether or not you were executing this test in Geekbench 4 Pro's command line interface or not? From there, we can take a closer look at the issue on our end.

    Geekbench 4.1.1I used the app (tryout mode), not the command line.But I think I solved it. For some reason my computer was running on a single processor. I forced it to use all 8 processors, and now the benchmark runs just fine.
