Default System crash when converting DvD to DivX

Hi everyone! I am new at this forum since I only recently have bought a computer with a DvD player. My problem is this:

When I try to convert a dvd to avi or divx, the computer switches off. I have tried several different programs including easydivx and gordian knot but the problem seemes to be with my computer and not the programs. After using gordian knot I have found that the problem occurs when I use Nandub, and I believe it's the same process that is the problem also when using other progs.

My PC:
Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo D PIV 2.4GHz
256 MB DDR-RAM
ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 with 32 MB DDR-RAM
Running Windows XP SP1 with all updates

Hope someone here can help me with this and I would be eternally gratefull!

PS: I have done a search

No, sorry... I don't know if there was any, the computers just switched of and I got one error report when I ran gordian and that was something about changing something back in the register...

without even knowing what kind of codec and thus which tool was actually used for transcoding it is extremely hard to recommend anything useful.

was nandub used for transcoding (i.e. divx3) or was it used for multiplexing AFTER the conversion?

take a look ath your directory.

a gknot*.log should after all be present

Sorry, Still no log file. But I was about 4 minutes in the first pass if that helps anything and it was divx5, but I have also tried divx3

i've had random reboots during playback once which were solved with newer chipset drivers.

running out of ideas in your case.

irq conflicts or heat arent to blame either?

Check your memory. I have had a lot of encoding crash until I discovered one of my RAM stick wasn't OK.

Use DocMemory

I have the same problem too since I reformated my hard drive, using any codec (divx 3.11 alpha, Divx 5.0.3 2-pass or XViD 2-pass). For Divx 5 and Xvid, it happens most of the time during the second pass. My computer reboots automatically. I have a VIA motherboard, an Athlon 1 Ghz, 640 SDRAM memory, Geforce 4 Titanium 4200 with 40.72 Detonators.

Another precision : I use FlaskMPEG 0.6 Preview, and I never had problems before I reformated my hard disk.

Thanx for all help, it turned out to be a bad ram-stick. Now I have a new one, and everything works great!!

thats because its a dos based program, it should make you create a bootable floppy to use it from.

but if you want to test your memory the best program to use is memtest http://www.memtest86.com/
its also very effective in checking the stability when overclocking.
