Possible problems with dual processor?
on Aug 14, 2005 at 10:44:08 pm

Hello,

I had a single processor computer and had no problems with PI3 whatsoever. Then I upgrade my computer to a Dual Core AMD Athlon 4200+ processor and am having problems with it crashing quite a bit. Is anyone else running a dual core system that has problems as well? I also upgraded my graphics card to a GeForce 6600 as well. Tried new drivers but still crashes.

Thoughts?

Ed

Hi Ed,
I have an Athlon X2 4800 dual core using a Chaintech motherboard with an Quadro 3400 graphics card. I have no problems with PI. Maybe it is your graphics card or drivers? I have had some problems with firewire capture and soundblaster sound cards that caused my computer to hang occasionally, but never while using PI. Does this help?

Thanks, that helps a little bit. Basically it'll come down to a piece of hardware/software/driver issue. I'll be in troubleshooting hell for the next week or so. Haha

Over 90% of the problems people have with pIllusion are due to video driver issues. Try running with software rendering and see if the crashes stop.

Start - Programs - particleIllusion 3 - run with software rendering

If this fixes the problem, then it is indeed a video driver issue. Since you're using the latest drivers, if they're "beta" drivers, try using the latest drivers that are "released" or "qualified" (they are probably not the newest drivers).
