    Very Annoying Gigastudio Freeze (3.21)

    Hey all. Was wondering if any of you smarties might have insight into a strange freeze that's been occurring forever in my main giga machine. This only happens when Gigastudio is open, so I have to think it's a Giga issue, but every so often, twice a day maybe, it freezes cold. No mouse movement - hell there's not even power to my usb trackball! I reboot and restart Giga and all seems fine until it happens again 6 or so hours later. Any ideas? I've tried messing around with prefs, etc. Thanks for anything that might help!

    12. no antivirus programs.
    13. Could you post the specs of your machine.
    It could be a number of things from a faulty Mobo/bios/RAM/Hard Drives
    Anyway check out the list and see if something is out of whack.

    Cheers

    Thanks so much!

    I think the disabling the services must have helped, today was the first day in awhile with no freezes....time will tell! I did have to enable some net stuff for MIDIoverLAN. Now I have another strange problem, the computer doesn't like to shut down - it restarts most of the time when you want to. This was happening before, but not too much...

    BTW, the computer is a P4 2.4Ghz with an ASUS motherboard. 80gig System Drive, (2) 250Gb Raid, 4Gb RAM, RME Hammerfall Audio Card...

    Thanks again!

    you might want to uncheck auto restart; you may be getting a BSOD and not know it.

    >control panel>system>advanced>startup and recovery>settings> uncheck Automatically restart.

    I found that a cpu slower than 2.9 gigs and a FSB slower than 500 mhz gave me endless problems. just my 2 cents worth.

    Cheers
