Computer shut dowm


I just recently upgraded my computer (to the data provided) so I could burn DVD's. I installed the Pinnacle Studio 8 software that came with the USB capture device, and everything was working great for 2-3 days. I was able to burn DVD's, etc. without a single problem, not a freeze up, not a crash, nothing. Then on the 4th day, about 50 min. into a 1 hr. burn, the entire system shut down completely (complete power down) with no warrning. I was able to re-boot, and about 20 min into the next burn, it completely shut down again. Now when ever I run the Pinnacle software, I get blue screens of death all over the place.

I tried burning a DVD using the basic burning software that came with the drive, and it worked just fine.

Does this sound like a hardware failure of some sort, or do you think this is a software problem?

Since your computer working fine with the origanal sofware, it seems that the pinnacle studio 8 is not compatible with your hardware device such as memory, Cpu speed etc try to run a hardware compatible list to what capicity of memory and cpu the pinnacle studio 8 needs you can go to the manufacturer web sites and look it up Another thing check is if it is compatible with win98.

Good luck!
