  1. Hi peeps,

    My problem is that my PC crashes whenever I try to edit large(ish) video files.
    It crashes no matter what software I use, be it Dr.DivX, Ulead video Editor or others.

    I get a Microsoft error report which says...

    "The error was caused by an unrecoverable hardware error which forced the operating system to stop functioning.

    Although we know the problem is caused by a hardware component, unfortunately the error report does not contain enough information to tell us the specific component. More than likely the problem is being caused by problems with one or more of the following computer components:

    * Random Access Memory (RAM)
    * System board
    * Central Processing Unit (CPU)
    * Power supply"


    Anybody got any ideas what's causing it & what I can do to stop it?

    AMD Athlon 3200+
    1 gig ram
    RADEON 9500 PRO / 9700
