Ok, this sounds pretty serious. Even though Max is opening it is still probably a RAM problem.

Here are some suggestions:

I hope to god you have cold-booted it already? eg. turn off for 5 minutes then on again. You'd never believe this is the most overlooked solution. :bounce:

If you have After FX, open it (if possible) and do edit>purge>all it may just clear the mem, but i doubt it.

You may have to open up your box. Jiggle the RAM a little (with the power off please!) try and make sure it is in properly. Check there is not too much dust on the contacts etc. If you have DDR RAM (like me) you need to have all the bits of RAM in properly, and dummy ram in the empty slots for it to let the other bits of RAM work! its crezzy... so even a minor fault on one can cause catastrophic failure of all them. it sux.

Check for a virus, especially one that could have infected photoshop.

Other than that I don't know...

Good luck! :thumbsup:
