    Black Screen

    What's going on guys... Still having a sleu of problems over here, but today marked a new one.... after almost nearing the work day at the studio I was trying to upload a set of files, and all of a sudden the screen went black but the music kept playing, so it didn't crash, but right prior to it going black I was getting some lag and pausing. When i rebooted the machine and checked teh event viewer I see right before it happened,

    "Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: Photoshop.exe (17204) consumed 12298973184 bytes, Lightroom.exe (700) consumed 6731354112 bytes, and ROESWebStart.exe (6528) consumed 4798763008 bytes"

    I'm pretty confident I couldn't of ran out of memory, I'm pushing 32gb in the system.

    I also got a "Crash Dump Initialization Failed"

    Since I'm running an M.2 SSD card for the OS and programs,... I did turn off No Paging File for the drive and also, unchecked "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives"

    Any suggestions? I do have a new PSU unit coming in under warranty due to the lagging issues I've been having and the electronic hang up I recieve randomly. If anything, I'm just going down the line of hardware that is causing the bottleneck of issues trying to figure out what is faulty.

    Oddly.... the Log collector finished, but the zipped folder on my desktop. Is there another location that it would get placed?

    In addition, this just happened which is new. Proceeded to get worse to before I had to do a restart. I thought it was GPU issue at first, but then i moved the window and found out that it was isolated to just the window.... almost like a plugin was crashing. My mind is mush now, no idea if this is a GPU Issue, or PSU issue. Click image for larger version.

    DDM Log

    Took me a little longer to find the file. For some reason had to go the back end to find it on the desktop, not sure why.

    I think I followed that to what you requested sir. Thats the only yellow Exclamation that I found.... I've had that for about 1 month now or so. I can't seem to narrow it down

    If you check the properties window for that item, go to the details tab, and grab the Hardware IDs. It should be something like:


    You can use this information to look up vendor and device info, and start seeking out (potential) driver help and fixes from there. I usually Google those vendor IDs as a way to get things going. Using the foregoing string, for example, I can tell I grabbed it from one of my generic USB 2.0 hubs.
