It means the benchmark was unable to open a fullscreen view.

You could try switching between stretched/centered modes in 3DMark 11 settings - it may help. Alternatively you can try changing your desktop resolution to 720p (it helps mask the issue on some configurations) or going thru your background programs and closing whichever of those is blocking the fullscreen mode.
