anyone familier with this type of screenie after a crash?

my chinese college is rendering in C4D (all up to date and official, with a 4 month old pc) but quite often, when rendering/processing complex scenes it crashes like this. could be on frame 6 or 66. you never know until it happens.

all appropriate drivers are cool. i thought maybe dodgy ram or ram controller? i've had strange crashes from failing ram before now

any ideas?

It's memory corruption of the graphic card. Check it's not overheating and try another card, as this one might be faulty.

i've just skyped him your massage mate

so this can be caused by complex scene processing at render time?

Remember to check windows logs after crashes like that. Most often they will not have time to register anything if it is a complete system crash. But sometimes they give you some good info, which can be googled.

logs are found by right clicking "my computer" and selecting "manage" > logs > Windows logs > "Programs" or "System".

Terribly boring signature.

That reminds me of a video card that had screwed up RAM but who knows. x

thanks chaps. problem identified -

the nvidia openGL driver has encountered out of memory errors, causing random crashing when processing temperatures rise above 50 deg/C.

Managed to contain it with cooling until a replacement can be fitted.

Thanks again chaps.

Kind of late, but it looks exactly like a hell of a memory leak. It's still beautiful.

Congrats, you found my signature.

Looks like a very effeminate attempt at a bluescreen. I suggest you reinstall masculinity drivers, and beat the shit out of your floppy disk drive. Should fix it.
