View Full Version : Photoshop crashing problem
I recently reinstalled Photoshop 7 and am having a problem with it constantly crashing. This is odd because PS has always been stable but now all of the sudden I cant go 5 minutes without it freezing up on me. Its not a specific tool I'm using it happens at random but constantly. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Is it only photoshop that's crashing? let us know your system specs and operating environment... also check your free disk space.
Yeah just Photoshop crashes, My system Specs are pentium 3.2 ghz, 1gig of ram, 120 gig hd(with about 105 still available) ATI Radeon x800. Its a new rig but PS was working on it fine until I reformated everything and reinstalled. It so strange because I used Photoshop every day for about the last 5 years and its never behaved like this. Everyone at work is stumped.

Are you still having problems with PS crashing?
It might be your main board. I had the same problem with 7.0 awhile back... It just started doing it out of the blue one day. (Actually, now that I think about it, I had reformatted my drive a few days prior to the constant crashing)...
After I did some digging around in the Adobe Forums (http://firstname.lastname@example.orgXeOGQdJH.5@.ef47fb1/2), I found a thread that Chris Cox posted regarding this same thing happening. He listed several different mo-bos that this was occuring on.
In the thread (my thread, not the one in the like above. I can't find my thread at the moment) Chris explains that the computer companies have acknowledged the problem, corrected it and now only ship units with the fixed main board installed.
When I had called HP, their techs (yes, it actually came to the point that I was talking to the techs IN the warehouse that were working on my machine) didn't know of any compatibility issues involving PS and their boards...
Long story short, I finally convinced HP to get a hold of Adobe to confirm the issue was legit... After a huge battle over the phone, HP FINALLY said "my bad" and they replaced my board free of charge...

LOL!... check your scratch disks
l=> preferences>scratch disks
If your scratch disk is on the same disk as your operating system, you're pretty goosed!.. change it to a free drive (or partition your drives)...
Other than this... check your file-paging size. PM me if you get any more problems:D
