Maybe some one can share there ideas here.
I'm a technically competent administrative user.
To be able to activate MS hardware acceleration to get best performance from my 256MB ATI Radeon X1300 Pro while using Pinnacle Studio Plus 10.7.0.4245 video production application.
When ever the hardware acceleration is activated 98% of the time when I place unburned media in to either of my optical drives the drives will spin up then the OS post the blue screen stop error.
Same address every time:
MS Stop Error Detail:
*** STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0X806E494F,0XB7FF33C8, 0X00000000)
Microsoft has suggested the following areas:
Disk space / not my issue
Try changing video adapters / I have the latest drivers
If a drive is identified / No driver identified in the stop process blue screen
What we know:
Issue existed from the start prior to the very few applications that have been loaded thus far.
Issue has happened with both and CD-R and DVD+R disc in both drives, ruling out that one drive, or specific brand media is bad.
Both drives read recorded and stamped media with out issue.
All hardware and memory have passed testing.
No issues were found with the 2 GB SDRAM / memory was installed one at a time in different slots with same stop error issue.
The latest drivers and firmware have been applied.
Both of the optical drives have been removed from device manager and allowed the OS to refresh them to rule out possibility of corrupt drivers (7/1/2001 5.1.2535.0)
We know that hardware acceleration has been of issue over the years.
Has any one found a optical drive that works under full hardware acceleration with out the above type of issue?
I was considering trying the PX-755SA SATA SERIAL ATA drive as they seem to be the industry leaders before they go off the market.
I wish to activate the hardware acceleration when I run Pinnacle Studio so that play back of edited video best quality. If hardware acceleration is not activated is see a visual down grade in video performance.
Should I consider a different graphics card instead?
I am growing tired of having to continually change the hardware acceleration level depending on what it is I want to do.
Otherwise the Dell XPS 410 has been a nice work horse of a PC.
