  • Streetdeck 1.0.5.0 Spontaneously Crashing

    I had been successful in running Streetdeck after I first downloaded it (sorry, I can't remember the version, but it was in the last week of May or first week of June.) Navigation, MP3s worked fine.

    A couple of weeks ago, it began spontaneously hard-resetting my computer. I'd be driving along, listening to music, and ZAP, I was looking at the BIOS info as my computer rebooted, then Windows was running checkdisk, warning of a serious error, etc.

    At first I thought I had a power supply issue, and checked all my connections. All was OK. Running other programs (MapPoint on its own, iTunes, etc.) without Streetdeck worked fine for multi-hour trips with no weird resets or crashes.

    It kept getting worse until eventually Streetdeck was crashing or resetting after running for about 10 seconds, without fail.

    I hadn't run any updates to the application.

    Just this evening, I formatted the drive and did a clean install of Windows XP SP2, all the updates, etc. I reinstalled all necessary drivers and downloaded a fresh copy of Streetdeck.

    It crashes like crazy. It hasn't actually reset my computer yet, but it has killed my display, making me reset manually because I couldn't see anything anymore.

    By now I'm sure you're wondering about my system config, so here it is:

    Via Epia MII 12000
    512MB RAM
    60GB HD
    Windows XP SP2

    I'm sure you've seen a few crash bug reports uploaded by me tonight, so you may glean more info from that. Is there anything I should be trying with this, or is there more info I can provide to help solve it?

    Thanks,
    Pierre

    It sounds like a display driver issue, either your vid card is fried, bad drivers, or overheating.

    Does it work when you run with -GDI or can you run other Direct3D programs without your computer crashing?

      I ran the test utility you decribed here

      http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=79500

      and everything passed OK. Is there some other program I can use to stress-test this component to rule out a hardware issue?

      Note that the issue occurred with the PC installed in the vehicle (under SUV passenger seat, lots of air circulation) and on my desk.

      As for running with -GDI, I have not yet done so. What does that do?

      P.S. -I have tried editing the shortcut to add command line parameters, but I get an "invalid path" error or something to that effect when I try to save the change. In typical noob fashion, I must be missing something obvious.

      Thanks!
