I'm having a problem, it never used to happen until recently.
When I'm building a video file, everything seems fine until I start to render.
After about 10mins rendering, the pc shuts down.
When I reboot and look in the event logs, there is nothing logged when the pc shut down.
However when I reboot the log tells me the time the pc shutdown and says it was unexpected.
I'm running Win7 Home premium 64-bit.
AMD Athlon X3 with 6gb ram.
I have at least 60gb of hard drive space where I am compiling the video.
I have tried different formats for the video from Pal dvd widescreen to H.264 1920 x 1080.
I have even tried burning to a DVD file.
Tried different videos, re-installed PRE9.
Rebuilt the pc with a fresh copy of WIN7.
Still the same result.
Probably a heat problem... when was the last time you used a utility program to monitor your CPU and other heat levels?
I use CPUID HWMonitor program... Google to find

This is about Premiere Pro, the most of the IDEAS are the same
I think you are correct, I tried the CPUID HWMonitor found the cpu cores were running at 83C. Whilst rendering, I have cleaned out the heatsink and fan on the cpu, now seems to be running at 64C.
Thanks for the advice.
