I'm using Adobe Premiere CS4 w/ Windows XP to edit some MPEG2-Videos. All I do is importing them, doing some edits and exporting them back as MPEG2. Everything worked just fine with Premiere CS2. But since I upgraded to CS4, everytime I try to export a file with Media Encoder, my system crashes.
In about half the cases, there's a Bluescreen 000000B8 "A wait operation, attach process, or yield was attempted from a DPC Routine". In the other cases, the BSOD errors vary (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA), the system just freezes or restarts without warning.
What I've tried so far:
Updating mainboard/chipset drivers
Upgrading BIOS to latest version
Switching graphics accelerator
Trying different hard disks
Checking Syslog for errors
Lightning a candle on Sunday :-)
Reinstalling Apple Quicktime
Deinstalling all Adobe Software and reinstalling them from scratch
All Adobe programs and Windows itself are up to date
Any more advises?
Often these problems can be caused by a faulty PSU or by heat problems. Use Speedfan or HWMonitor to check these and please post a link or screenshot to the results. Can you give some more details on the hardware side? Mobo, processor, RAM, PSU, video and disk setup, etc.
Page fault corruption could also point to bad RAM or bad disk sectors.
Apart from the details Harm asked for, run some utilities to check your RAM and disks.
