When I render on m XP home system from Veags Video or 3d Studio Max 6.1, at some arbitrary frame (40-100), the system will reboot. I get nothing useful.

I have run tuiff test pro and no problems were found. I ran Microsoft Memory test and nothing was wrong.

How can I figure out what is wrong with my system? I can run the same programs from my W2K system and they run find and render the same video fine. Its only a problem on my Dell XPS system.

thanks
Bryan

Sound like a memory error. Try this memory checking program:
http://www.memtest86.com

Installation
===============
Memtest86 is a stand alone program that cannot be executed under windows and must
be loaded from a floppy disk.

To install Memtest86:
- Extract the files from the zip archive
- Open the directory where the files were extracted and click on "install.bat".
- The install program will prompt you for the floppy drive and also prompt you to
insert a blank floppy.
- To run Memtest86 leave the floppy in the drive and reboot.

NOTE: After the boot floppy has been created you will not be able to read the floppy
from windows. This is normal.

Let us know the results. <_<

I installed and ran the memory test as you recommended. I ran it for several passes for 2 hours and no errors were reported.

Perhaps there is another check I can do with some other tools?

thanks
