I recently downloaded trial versions of Premiere Pro CS3 and After Effects CS3 Professional and installed both successfully. However when starting either of these programs, the splash screen appears for a few seconds and then my laptop freezes to a black screen and I have to do a hard shutdown. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both these programs, but the problem remains. I think, but am not sure, that perhaps my graphics adapter is the culprit. Any recommendations, solutions to resolve this?
My setup is as follows: Toshiba Satellite A100, Core 2 Duo T7200 2GHz processors, 128MB Mobile Intel 945GM Express graphics adapter, 2GB RAM, internal 90GB SATA, two external 160GB SATA hard drives, one external 500GB USB2 hard drive, one 1TB RAID drive, one internal and one external DVD recorder.
