How much of an impact does the GPU have on the Studio15 Ult. program?
I was going to post this in the Windows7 Forum, but because this might be a GPU hardware issue, I am parking it here.
Video card (MAYBE) causing issues with Studio15 and other programs. I have been experiencing lots of issues with my Studio15 Ultimate, and thought it was the program. Every time I would be in the EDIT MOVIE mode, I would add a simple transition, and the screen would turn white ("GHOSTING"), and then I would get the ("NON-RESPONDING") message all the time.
So I uninstalled Pinnacle S15, until I know what's causing these issues. These happen online and offline.
Then I thought it maybe the Win7, then the CPU, and then I was talking with MSI, the maker of my P-35 MS-7345 Platinum Motherboard, Socket 775, and they told me it was most likely the GPU. he hears the same thing with the MSI GPU's.
My self-build is about 4 and a half years old, same as the GPU, and when I originally bought it, I was using a 32 Bit Win XP, but now I use WIN7 (64) and have updates on my GPU all the time.
Windows7 PRO 64 (SP1)
MSI PLATINUM P-35 (MS-7345)
700w Thermaltake PSU
Nvidia GeForce 8600GT Pci-e GPU

I performed a VIDEO CARD STABILITY TEST v. 126.96.36.199. I ran this utility and the benchmark for my Graphic card, after 9 hours of testing came back a 95.
Has anyone else experienced these issues with their GPU, while working in S15, and what was your problem? Thanks!
