New to encoding and it does seem pretty straightforward especially with forums like this and user friendly programs like vso and winavi.
My problem is not with the software but with my hardware. I,ve tried most of the popular encoding programs and they all reboot my pc during the encoding process. I've tried everything (reinstall xp, uninstall nvidia ide drivers,ram test s ) and after months of climbing the walls I,ve discovered by accident that all my avi files will encode with any program IF the side of the pc case is removed. Yup its easy when you finally find the problem (just glad I didnt rush out and replace any compoents).
So this is obviously a temprature/overheating problem but the thing that is baffling me is that speedfan shows all my temps with either a green tick or a blue arrow except for "aux" which fluctuates between green tick and red arrow at about 45 -50 dergrees so I,m guessing that my problem lies with either my graphics card or my psu. But as the tempratures are not exactly off the chart then why is my system rebooting.
The only 2 things that I can find for my pc crashing are overheating psu or graphics card.
Can anyone help or has anyone experienced a similar problem as its driving me up the wall.
