computer shuts down during encoding

Question

I have used media creator 2009 and now have purchased media creator 2010 as I have changed to Windows 7. When trying to encode a project with multiple videos (same type of projects I have been successful with in past) my computer just shuts down. I do not get an error message. I have burned to each vid to iso file to see if I have a bad video and they will encode fine individually, but cannot do more than the one. I have read the posts and set options to software rendering and it got into the 2nd video before shutting down which was further along. I also change mem settings to let windows handle that part. I have latest drivers installed and have all patches installed. I am about ready to give up!

 

 

 

Windows 7

Intel-core dual processor

2 GB RAM

Slimtype DVD DL ATA Burner

NVIDIA Ge-Force 8600 GT

How long in time are the individual videos, how long the total project?

How much free space on your hard drive?

80GB free on main drive and 646 free on 2nd drive where videos are stored. Each vid is about 45 min long. Now I have done these type projects before using media creator 9 on this machine under Vista without any problem. Then I used hardware rendering. This time I have tried both hardware and software rendering. The software went faster and further before the shutdown. I am using dual layer. I tried cutting down the number of vid and doesn't seem to make any difference unless I just do one. One works fine, got to three once, thought maybe it was a bad vid, deleted that one, then only got to two the next time. Computer is not hot. At a loss now. Memory good ran a check. Ignore the computer with my signature using the one with the post.

each vid is 45 min and there are 5. I know the project is big but I have done this size many times in past with media creator 9 on same machine with Windows Vista without problems. See my post below for more details. Have searched the forum and tried some of things suggested in past you all are so helpful. I can usually figure it out with reading here but have not seen my current problem so far. Don't know what to do now. One vid per disk is not an option as I don't want to make 26 disks to give to 18 basketball players, when I have gotten it to work in the past.

You video card is just about the minimum for this program.

 

Do the rendering again but keep an eye on the CPU usage. If it is running at 80 to 100% for a long time, then your CPU is probably overheating. Is that a desktop or laptop?

 

A good memory check has to run overnight; the two pass built into Windows is not very good.

Thank you both. It was over heating even tho my cpu usage was around 60%. I put my laptop on support with a fan and problem solved! Perfect projects! I may still increase mem size to 4 GB as I watched the mem usage as well as the cpu and it was also maxed out. For awhile I thought that might be the issue but it was the overheating have created two projects with 5 45min vids and they encoded perfectly. Thanks again, love this forum!
