Computer crashes when rendering in Premiere Pro


When i start rendering changed video, the computer locks up and restarts. Specs are
P4 3.0 GHz
1 gig DDR ram
Nvidia Ti 200 128 DDR and also Nvidia Geforce MX 420 64

Is there a setting that i am missing, or does my computer just not like Premiere?


Is there a specific error you get?

Also, are you using an external HDD or any other type of drive?



If your Premier pro is running using windows XP,pls check ur service Pack install the latest version.

I had the same problem when i put render it gets crashed or if i rightclick on the timeline.


2 internal WD drives.

There is no error shown until after the comp restarts.


It was an NVIDIA/Xp problem, found the fix at
