I currently have an issue with After Effects where the system constantly freezes and it says "Not Responding" at the top of the screen. While this is happening the screen starts flashing for 30 seconds to a minute. During this time I am not able to click on any other windows, not even clicking the start button works. Once it stops I am able to work for a while and then it locks up again and goes through the same process. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del and then escaping from the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen usually gets the system to break out of the freeze cycle, but then it happens again a few minutes later.
I am running the latest version of Adobe CC and I have had the issue on every version of CC. I also use Element 3D quite a bit and I experienced the issue on version 1.6 and I am currently on the most recent release of Element 3D 2.
Core i7-4770K 3.5 GHz
16 GB Memory
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit
OS and programs installed on a 256GB Samsung SSD
Adobe Cache on a 256GB Samsung SSD
Video card is a Nvidia GTX 980 (but I had the exact same issue on a Nvidia GTX 560ti)
Check your SSDs in the device manager. This very much sounds like you have a driver problem there. Could of course also be a graphics driver issue, at least where E3D is concerned....
Thanks so much for answering. I have updated every driver in my system including the SSD firmware and I still have the issue. I noticed that there a couple people that have experienced this, but I cannot find a solution anywhere. Any other thoughts?
