(Win7 64bits Home premium)
As I mentioned in another thread I have been having some issues with my laptop crashing, not happy!
I have narrowed it down to the use of Putty at first and the ucon terminal programs. The terminal within Studio, limited as it is, doesn't seem to crash the computer.
I have the latest version of Putty 0.62 and it crashes in a strange way, the program locks up but can be terminated however the applications still show up as active but it can also be terminated, the process however cannot be terminated and the serial port is locked and no other program can use it.
Everything else seems to still work.
It's another story with ucon, the laptop simply goes into blue screen mode and stops working, when it restarts I get an error report and minidump files which are now in the hands of HP for further analysis. Apparently there is an "isssue" with ntoskrnl.exe (I think)
At first I thought that it was a combination of AS6 (of course... :? ) Adobe and the terminal because they were always open when the crash occured, but then I have been able to run AS6, including it's terminal, and Adobe all day without a crash. Either of the above mentioned terminals will crash after a short period of operation, maybe several minute.
M$ didn't want to know and passed the buck to HP which were helpful once I got in touch with them last night. The "usual" things were suggested, full memoty scan, HD scan and as a last resort reinstall windows which I can't do as no disk came with the machine.
