I built my first DAW with a little help from the \'Roll Your Own\' article. Everything is fine except for...
whilst using GigaStudio sometimes the PC just bombs, everything is fine one moment, black screen the next. I don\'t recieve a warning dialog box it just crashes (doesn\'t respond to ALT+CTRL+DEL) so I have to reboot. Happens at least once a day and is VERY annoying!
Have you checked your CPU\'s temperature to make sure that you aren\'t overheating it? I have had problems with my 1.4 ghz machine overheating - they used thermal tape instead of real thermal compound when placing the heatsink on the cpu - once I fixed that my heat problems were gone. I never had lockups becuase I had temperature alarms going off so I could shut it down, but I have an older system that does lock up and I\'m thinking it may have to do with temperature. Something to at least look into, I suppose. When you boot your computer go into the CMOS and you should be able to check the temperatures there, if you don\'t have software to check it while you are running it.

I have the same problem!!!
I don\'t think my problem is the temperature because is about 60°C (it\'s ok?).
My pc configuration:
Athlon XP 1700+
motherboard K7T266 Pro2
512 Mb RAM DDR (256Mb + 256Mb)
Windows 98 SE
Ego-Sys Gigastation (with latest drivers)
Gigastudio 96 (bundled with the card) upgraded to 2.5
video card 3D Prophet 4000XT 64Mb
1st hard disk IDE 40Gb (for Windows and programs)
2nd hard disk IDE 80Gb (for Gig files only)
rack case with QuietPC PSU and fans
I have checked: no irq conflicts or any (apparent) Windows problem.
I don\'t know what to do!!!
I accept suggestions, please help!!!
