Thanks for sharing Harm.
It sure is easy to overlook something like that.
I cant wait to build a new system but have to pay bills first.
For now my XP will have to do but maybe by the time I am ready most of the CS5 bugs will be worked out.
Not that this was a CS5 issue for you just talking in general for myself.
It looks like new New Egg has the new 6GB/s hard dives in.
A new system is going to be great once I get there.
I sure hope I get around to building it before CS6 lol
many thanks for this post. it helps the newbies to realize that the experts/experienced/inteligent can mess up too.
with this experience...what does it teach you in regards to how to go about solving a problem. i think that is what we all need to learn
"Done and on to installing the latest nVidia driver and utilities."
I hate tearing a system apart, trying to discover why something's not working. I just inherited an Xtreme Notebook. The owner of the company I work for just bought a new Sager because the Xtreme was bluescreening. Xtreme went out of business. The notebook uses a "Clevo" motherboard, model D900C. Unfortunately, I can't find updated drivers designed for Windows 7. This is one of those monster notebooks with a 17" screen, 3 internal 7200 hard drives, an intel Q9550 processor with twin Nvidia 8800M GTX graphic cards.
It turns out that the Nvidia graphics card drivers are causing the bluescreen. I am positive that the reason is because I need updated drivers for Windows 7 from Clevo, if they even exist. We bought another CS5 Production Premium license so I can use this for editing out of town in a few weeks. Everything seems to work fine using the generic driver provided by Microsoft or whoever. The card's memory falls short of the MPE requirements which would of course require the hack.
Anyway, glad to hear you are back up and running.
