    "Creating Windows"

    It just locks up


    I think this has something to do with my computer and i was curious if you knew what it could be..

    The reason I think that is the entire reason I got Vegas was because movie maker would do the same thing (lock my computer up).


    my pc specs


    athlon 64 x2 dual core 4800
    2gigs of ddr 800 ram
    8800gts 320 meg video card.. windows xp sp3

    gigabyte motherboard s-series

    i dunno what to do.. but I have videos I want to edit and I can't get a program not to lockup my pc

    my PC runs good other than this..

    locks up? just hangs/freeze? no bsod or something?

    1. i'd check ram. use memtest
    2. make sure you have the latest drivers, directx, etc.
    3. try to disable other programs running in the background
    4. most of these video editing software requires tons of codecs. install a codec pack like k-lite or cccp.

    memtest passed

    hm

    movie maker locks up when I add videos or audio to the timeline.. and vegas locks up when it's at the "Creating windows" part of the bootup of the program.

    Odd

    Nothing, I have to reset the pc manually

    checked memtest.. passed

    pretty sure I have the latest drivers on everything, I just installed windows sp3 and had to download them all beforehand so they are all pretty up to par.

    just disabled some realtek onboard audio shit and im going to try again now..

    that could be two different things.

    movie maker usually locks up if the video files you added are incompatible.
    try a different format or convert it first to avi, wmv, or whatever.
    again,.. some video files (even known to be compatible) will not work without the proper codecs.

    vegas locking up at application start could simply be a bad install of the app.

    it's a $549 product. Look at who he is. Look at his system specs. He didn't pay for it.

    His issue is a known problem with pirated software.

    If you need other evidence, then consider he's posting on OT and not getting support from Sony.

    Well i'd rather not call anyone.. figured OT is usually pretty knowledgable when it comes to this type of stuff and it saves me minutes on my phone :dunno:

    You're a real big asshole man, maybe you should calm down and just help people out if you can instead of doing this type of crap.
