This happened like a few days back: I opened SV and started to edit my footage and all of a sudden the preview window starts to look really distorted, like the whole screen usually does when I experience a crash in Photoshop, and then boom, blue screen of death. Once I came back and signed in to Windows I opened up SV again and, surprise surprise, I got ANOTHER blue screen just from jumping between different areas on the timeline. WTF?! I've repeated these steps over and over for like two days now and I get a blue screen everytime.
So now I can't even edit, I mean I'm used to rendering problems but this? THIS is just a whole new level of bullshit.
I know laptops aren't really made for heavy editing programs but it has never gotten this bad. Unfortunately the video card of my laptop is unstable as f**k and while I've grown used to occasional blue screens with Photoshop it has never happened with Vegas, least not while editing. I so wish this piece of trash laptop wasn't my only source of video editing but, unfortunately, it is.
Sorry for sounding so bitter and raw, I'm just really upset and don't know what to do.
