i get this almost every day. it hapens when i access the file menu to open a drawing. i've searched around and having found anything to fix this. i've disabled alot of the windows visal enhancements. using a non Aero backround theme. Set my video card to performance rarther than quality.
anyone got a fix? my company just bought multiple machies of the type below and it happens to all of them.
Software: AutoCAD Architecture 2009 Version 4 (64 bit)
HP Pavilion dv7-3180us
Intel i7 1.6 Qhz
Windows 7 64 bit
NVIDIA GeForece GT 230m 1GB
I know exactly what you are discribing. You may note that I am a college student and every CAD lab computer in my junior college would crash that way. They never found the trouble; even with help from the computer manufacturer, the computer system manufacturer or Autocad we ran 2009. The instructors, the IT folks could not solve the problem either. Finally, we were warned
DON'T DO THIS OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL OF YOUR WORK!!!
Hopefully, the trouble is resolved with the new software and computer system that is to be installed this summer.
I wish you luck in finding the solution to this problem and hope you have better luck chasing down the trouble.
I am guessing this has something to do with AutoCAD 2009 and Windows 7. This did not happen to me until I got Windows 7. Now I crash every day . Multiple times a day. Hoping that Autodesk will send a patch soon as we are not ready to jump to 2010.
I get this multiple times a day... I have AutoCAD 2008, and Ive done a little resarch and found this... it seems to work for me!!
Dont quote me on it, but I havent crashed yet today...
I had IT do a complete hard drive reformat (This should be done at least once a year to all CAD computers) and the problem has not come up since.
