Hello, hoping posting here will help me fix a problem or at least become more aware of the problem.
I've been using Max and Maya for a while now (over a year) and suddenly yesterday morning, they both began to give me BSODs when launching. I hadn't installed or changed anything on my comp between the last time it worked and it not working.
After trying to reinstall the programs, I also tried re-seating my graphics card and memory, I've updated to the most recent nvidia beta drivers and also tried rolling back to older ones. After none of that worked, today I decided to format and reinstall windows, also to no avail. I've run a hard drive check and memory diagnostic tool through windows, neither reporting errors. I downloaded and installed SoftImage and Blender to test and see if it was only Autodesk products or a 3D issue. SoftImage also blue-screens, but Blender and 3d apps/games still work fine. Since it's strictly Autodesk products, I'm posting on these forums hoping to find some more information and maybe even a fix.
Here is a picture of the exact BSOD error:
Thanks for any help or ideas
Solved! Go to Solution.
its faulty hardware
Darren is right, a 0x50 error tells me immediately that your hardware is toast. Time to get a screwdriver.
Well, I'm quite aware of how to Google and had seen those pages already, but thanks for confirming that I guess. Just found it awkward that only Autodesk products seem to be affected by this and otherwise the computer is still behaving normally with all my other DCC tools and games/programs. Still not sure why it's singling out Autodesk and was sort of hoping to understand it a bit more on the technical side (like a faulty address in memory that only Autodesk seems to use or what?).
Autodesk programs are more graphic and memory intensive than other applications. That's why a faulty video driver will crash Inventor, but Call of Duty will continue to run fine.
I started having the same problem (with 3ds max and Maya) at the same time. All of my other programs work, including lightwave 10 (which i would imagine to be just as demanding of the computer as the Autodesk programs). Everything worked fine before
Check your driver version and BSOD stop error code. And create a new thread if you're having problems.
The draftsman in our office experienced this on a similiar date. He could run adobe CS6 products but autocad LT would crash BSOD on launch every time. We did a clean install and the exact same thing happened wth only autocad lt installed. Dell is telling us it is a software issue and not being helpful in fixing this issue.
