First, kill all F-Secure processes, kill Olympus, Canon, Realtek control panel, Nero, PowerDVD and other processes that are not necessary. You can easily reduce your running processes from 60+ to around 25 or less.
Second, IMMEDIATELY improve the airflow in your case. This is killing your system or if it has not yet, will definitely do so tomorrow. Add fans to reduce temperatures. Have a look at your power supply, it may not be up to it's task. Your 12V rail is too low.
I just realized, with the E7200 CPU, this may be a notebook and in that case you may have difficulty in improving your airflow. Is there any setting in the BIOS that can increase the fan speed? Is there any possibility of adding another (e)SATA drive to your system in addition to the 320 GB boot disk to improve performance?
I've killed all the processes you have told me too.
I've taken off the side of my PC and run a fan to hopefully help cool it down - With increasing airflow, I think I probably need a bigger case and more fans, this PC is a mixture of hardware from 3 that have been cannibalised. (Hence why the power supply isn't very good)
I'm sorry I'm not very computer literate, and I'm a student desperately trying to do her work. My PC isn't a notebook, its a desktop PC.
I'm not sure if there are any settings in the BIOS to help increase fan speed?
I'm really sorry, but what is a SATA drive?
Thanks so much for the help so far! It's still not working though :(
I'm going to wait a bit to see if the fan helps lower the temperature enough that its ok.
All the temperatures seem to be dropping except the AUX and system temperature.
Update: Premier seems to load, but then it doesn't respond, it turns into a white screen and refuses to close down. :(
You currently have at least one Western Digital Caviar 320 GB hard disk, which is a SATA drive (this relates to the type of connector and protocol used to access the drive) in contrast to IDE, USB, SCSI or firewire A/B types. That is good. For editing you need at least two disks or preferably three of the SATA type, since they are the most common, least expensive and offer good performance, only bested by SCSI.
Now that temperatures are dropping and your processes reduced to a more normal number of around 25, is there any improvement noticeable? Does PR still crash? If yes, please give a link to the other info requested in the link at the top of the page: How to...
How big is the project? How many clips/images/titles? How long is the program? What type of media files are in the project? AVI? What codec? HDV? AVCHD? MPEG2? MP3 audio? Dolby Digital audio? Are you using any plug-ins? Are any of your files stored on the network? On external drives? Are any of your scratch disks set to network or external drives?
I have two SATA disks then, and a smaller 150GB disk (I'm not sure about the type sorry)
Premiere still crashes, but all my other programmes seem to be working a lot better.
I'm going to have one more try at re-installing premiere,(third time lucky maybe?)
I'm post up the link to the other information when I get home. (At uni at the moment)
A beer would be brilliant. Plus, it is my actual second name. ;)
I havn't actually had a chance to load anything onto Premiere, as it crashes before it gives me the option.
I'm running it off my hard drive as it's been installed. It's the only prgramme out of the Adobe Creative Pro Premium that doesn't seem to work.
Create a temporary new administrator account. Log on to the new account and try running Premiere from there.<br /><br />If it works, then come back to your regular account and delete the Premiere preferences file located the C:\Documents and Settings\<you>\Application Data\Adobe\Premiere Pro\4.0 folder. Try launching PrCS4 again.
i tried this but the problem is still there
while loading always when the premiere pro cs4 reaches playmedia core the loading screen just vanishes from the desktopand and when i try to restart a font capture error message pop up on the desktop
any ideas of what's going on and how to fix this problem ??
