windows xp pro sp2 with all updates
amd atlon 64 x2 4200+
mobo is an asus m2n-mx
with several hard drives
2 dvd-burners <pioneer 110d and tsstcorp <samsung> sh183a>
I am encountering a sort of crash when I use nero to burn discs.
I say a sort of crash in that it is not shutting down the machine , nor giving me a BSD
What it is doing is giving my screen a diagonal patttern of white and black <kinda hard to describe> that doesn't seem to change with input.<you know how sometimes you can see that the image is changing when you hit specific keys? well it doesn't.
It will shut down the burn after about a minute, but the computer will continue to do other things very slowely in the back ground.
I am also encountering a nero 100% cpu usage problem.
I am thinking that something is conflicting with nero, but I can't find out what.
I have reinstalled the video drivers.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled nero with the newest one available, as well as an older version
I have done a registry clean of all of the nero / ahead keys just to make sure that nothing was left behind, and reinstalled nero.
Each time I will re-encounter this problem.
it does not occure each and every burn, in fact I can do several burns before the error crops up. Nor does the type of burn or what drive is the source seem to make a difference.
thanks for your help and your time, and if you need any more info please let me know.
PS. beent hinking about going to winxp64.... would this be a good time to do it?
