Please Check your system Settings.

Open Power Settings under Control Panel -> All Controll Panel Items -> Power Options.

Click "Change plan settings".

You'll find "Change advaced power settings".

Search for "Swichtable Dynamic Graphics" in the "Power Options" dialog and change the "Global Settings", "On battery" and "Plugged in" to "Maximize performance"

Now both, HeavyLoad and other programs which have the same problem shoud work again.

Also make sure you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics cards.

Please make sure that the latest drivers for your graphic card have been installed and that the program is not running on a virtual machine or via remote session.

The purpose of HeavyLoad is to put your system under stress to analyze its behaviour and to determine if it runs stable at this utilization. 
HeavyLoad is not a benchmarking tool and will not evaluate on how well a system performs in comparison to similar setups.

Please also keep in mind that stress testing a system can always lead to crashes and bluescreens and because of that, important data should be saved before running the tests. 

A few hints on telling if a test was successful:

  • You should run a test at least for one hour. Usually new issues won't be found if the system is running stable under the test for more than 5 hours.
  • If the machine does not show any bad symtpoms the load test was successful.
  • If not successful, the machine might crash or show a blue screen of death.
