    Lightroom CC Crashes on every export.  Please Help


      I've recently upgraded to Lightroom CC and upgraded my video card.  Now, every time I export, regardless of the settings, my computer crashes (I think) during the export.  It will usually export about 10-15 images, and then crash.  It doesnt crash on any particular images.  If I do the same export twice, it will crash on a different image each time.  I say I "think" it crashes, because the screen goes blank, then mouse stops working, but it looks like the computer stays on, and windows doesn't log a crash.  There isn't anything interesting in the system logs.  I've turned off all plugins, and I've tried toggling the GPU settings.  I'm at a loss on what to do next to troubleshoot.  Please help!

          I'm having exactly the same problem. I'll set LR to export and it might export anything from 20 up to 100 photos for me and then the PC crashes to a black screen.


          I'm on Windows 7 64 bit, a hi spec machine: 8 core, 4.00Ghz AMD FX processor, 8Gb RAM. Please help Adobe! This is now officially stopping me completing jobs and getting photos back to clients!

            I should note, I'm running a machine with similar specs. Windows 8.1 with an AMD FX 8350.  Also stopping me from delivering images to clients.

              I believe I solved my specific issue, and it wasn't lightroom.  It was my PC.  I ran Prime95 to stress test my CPU, and I had the exact same issue, computer shut down for no reason.  Which tells me that this issue is independent of LR.  It looks like the LR export was overtaxing my CPU, and shutting PC down.  Possibly overheating.  So, I played around with the BIOS settings and managed to get a working config... so far.  I've also replaced my power supply, thinking that the old 400W one wasn't powerful enough for my new video card.  For me, I think it was actually the BIOS config that fixed the issue.  Hopefully that help you.
