i have the patch already, thanx. did it help to solve ur problems?
I don’t think so :(.
When CCE “holts” as you say, does the PC freeze and the only option is to press reset ? If this is the case you problem is either memory timing probs or heat related. Check your fan is working and also not clogged with dust.
CPU and mamory are working fine. No heat problems and memory is ok. Indeed, if I downclock CPU and relax timings, the problem is still there.
Just a thought, I’m running 2x512meg sticks of Kingston DDR400. If I run in Single Channel mode all is well. If I insert them in Dual Channel mode, CCE will hang the PC somewhere during the encode.
My memory is running in dual channel. I think that it’s possible to change to single mode by bios. I’ll try after writing this post and we will see…
I’ve got the same M/B and an XP2800. I was having major problems with CCE 2.5. About half-way through an encode, the PC would freeze and I’d have to restart it and continue. A right nightmare.
Maybe is a problem of our MB but as I’ve said, I’m going to try again putting memory in single channel mode.
