System Requirements

I'm messing around with some video editing. I'm using Pinnacle 8 software. My stystem is an MSI K7T Turbo 2 Mobo, with a AMD Athlon XP 1700+, 1Gb Ram and a 20GB HD and XP Pro OS
At times when editing Pinnacle either completly shuts down or freezes for a few seconds and then starts working again (during this time I can hear the HD whirring away)
Do I have to upgrade something to stop this happening?

Open Control Panel - System - Advanced

In the Startup and Recovery section (bottom) click on the Settings button
to open the Startup and Recover window.

In the System Failure (middle) section of that window there are 3
checkboxes, the bottom one labelled Automatically restart. Click on that
checkbox to clear it.

Click on OK and Apply as needed to exit.

The computer will no longer restart when a system
failure occurs. Instead it will probably throw up a "Blue Screen Of
Death" with a STOP error message that you can read and research.

You can also type "eventvwr" into run and open the logs - look for the critical errors.

Try using the defrag tool each time prior to capturing the original footage onto the HD !

Assume you 'error check' your HD on a regular basis (once a month ?).

i'd suggest you try getting a much bigger hard drive, video editing uses a lot of memory
