      It is possible to get defective out of the box for sure. I have seen it several times over the years, but it doesn't happen often.

        when you buy a new car, there is a 90% chance you will have some warranty repairs in the very early stages

        quality is not what it used to be

        that is why I build all computers from quality parts that I know are reliable from years of testing and using, I would never buy a ready made PC from a shop

          I agree, I do the same thing. Like you, I used to build, sell and service NLE's, and train the users. I haven't bought an off the shelf system in over 20 years, as I prefer to use only parts I trust.

          In this case though, it is a laptop, so off the shelf is the only option. However, sometimes there are still better choices in these. I have always tended to shy away from brands like Dell, IBM/Lenovo, and HP/Compaq, as they often tend to do some funny things with the hardware configurations.

            Hey everyone,

            SOUNDFREAK
            - How would I test RAM to see if it's bad?
            I'm not having issues with photoshop or Adobe Bridge and I'm processing images in the thousands...

            if I'm only having issue with 1 software, how would I test the RAM?



            ANTON - I've always been told by friends in I.T not to trust Windows Defender alone, do you disagree with this statement? Do you feel it is enough on it's own?

            I do web development so I use all the main browsers (E, IE, Chrome, Mozilla, Safari, and Opera) Opera is actually my preferred browser. but I've had opera on my Desktop which has Edius 8 Pro, and my old laptop (the G75VW) that I mvoed all my software over from

            I will scan with Malwarebytes after I'm done with todays edit


            BERNH - I DO remember that on my other systems I would always have to disable avast WHILE using Edius.. so maybe with this latest crash I didn't do that.. never had to uninstall it, just had to disable while using Edius (had to do that on desktop AND old laptop)


            I love OPERA... but because I do web stuff I have to make sure the websites work on all browsers

            ANTON - will malwarescan
            lol ANTON - please try opera.. I have the browser on my phones too and love it



            BERNH/ANTON i do virus scans with all my stuff pretty regularly.. but will do malwarebytes (think I did it at the start when Bern suggested) but will repeat


            BERN - have not been 'tinkering under the hood' besides what I've been instructed to on this thread (disabling fast start in bios and in control panel etc)


            ANTON - when I bought my G75VW from Best Buy Florida (while living in Australia) in 2012 - I got to California with my truck of a laptop, and the hard drive failed.. they swapped it but 2 days got wasted with reinstalling and data recovery
            but I don't think that's the case with THIS 2018 laptop


            I have found ASUS laptops to be amazing.
            Lenovo and HP Compaq not so much
            ACER is a nightmare.. wouldn't touch them

            Never had a DELL but they're always double the price of an ASUS and IT guys tell me that it wasn't really worth it

              You shouldn't have to disable avast to edit if you make the normal exceptions to it's scan rules (media drives, Program Files/Grass Valley, and the hidden GV folders in the hidden AppData folders)

              I never meant to imply that you were tinkering, just that when people do they can cause problems.

              Personally I have never used an Asus laptop, so can't really speak to their quality. I just wanted to state, in a not so direct fashion, that not all laptops are created equally.

              As for RAM scanning, Memtest86 or Memtest86+ are good ones to try, but I had one occasion where RAM scanned ok with them, but a Passmark BurnIn test stressing only RAM discovered some that was failing in Windows, but not showing with the Memtest scanners.

                I never 'trusted' laptops much as you won't be able to thinker around like desktops, also the power was always severely lacking (in my experience)

                I can however report from own experience that my current ThinkPad is a real workhorse with solid performance and without thermal / throttling issues on long renders / exports.
                Would I prefer it over a proper desktop workstation..... NO never.

                As Anton mentioned earlier, quality of high-end products across the board in all aspects is not what it used to be and sadly a factor of luck is needed.

                What ram test is concerned I have to agree with Bern that testing it is not a 100% guarantee and personally would go for stress testing a system with various (free) software available.

                This will also test Ram but more importantly the entire system as thermal problems can also be hard to spot.
                It might even be your power supply either the external brick or on motherboard creating instability when system get stressed.

                With a problem laptop I would swap the boot ssd with i.e. only windows and Edius installed to exclude conflicts and no AV installed whatsoever.

                Whatever maybe the case you have a nasty problem and I pitty you for the time wasted on it...

                  The swap of boot ssd is meant for testing purpose only so that your production won't come to a halt...

                    I have built many Win10 performance PC with only defender and none of them have come back for any issues

                    I am not familiar with AVAST on where to go to add the exclusions for EDIUS, you also need to add the exclusions to Defender

                    the following need to be excluded:
                    C:\Program Files\Grass Valley
                    C:\Users\Login Account Name\AppData\Roaming\Grass Valley
                    C:\ProgramData\Grass Valley
                    The folder that holds all EDIUS projects


                    regarding Opera, I was not suggesting that this causes issues, I was only curious what you like because I never used that browser

                      Hey guys,
                      so as suggested I uninstalled Avast, (I ran it first and it detected no threats or virus's)

                      I then ran Malwarebytes and it shows no virus but 69 potential threats that I quaruntined then deleted.

                      Restarted the computer, working in Edius (with Avast uninstalled) and it freakin just crashed!!!

                      My next step would be RAM SCANNING..
                      I need to get this client job in the clients dropbox tonight so I have to keep working right now.. but I'll try those programs to test the ram after


                      "As for RAM scanning, Memtest86 or Memtest86+ are good ones to try, but I had one occasion where RAM scanned ok with them, but a Passmark BurnIn test stressing only RAM discovered some that was failing in Windows, but not showing with the Memtest scanners."



                      SOUNDFREAK - i would have agreed with you before but when I got the Asus G75VW it was just as powerful as my desktop, it was my first "desktop equal' laptop ever.. loved it, it was amazing...


                      My friends husband is an IT guy so if I get stuck on the ram test I'll get his help with Team Viewer..

                      I uninstalled Avast -

                      Thanks for the pity man.. This is a frustrating problem for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!



                      SIDENOTE: todays job I'm editing, the video files I'm editing are on an external, I wonder if I moved them to the C SSD if that would prevent the problem.. hmmm

                      Food for thought?
                      Do you guys ever edit off externals? or is it always off the C?


                      ANTON - Opera was the first browser (years ago) that really organized TABS well, when other browsers were doing it sloppy, and the homepage would show your most visited sites in cubes.. I know other browsers have copied this now but Opera was the first :)


                      I REALLY APPRECIATE EVERYONES HELP ON THIS - i know its long winded.

                            the dump file did not show anything specific to EDIUS other than lots of other crashes like Chrome and skype etc.

                            what is it exactly you do when it crashes? trimming? applying filters? exporting?

                              also, I recommend to scan your C drive for file system errors

                              select as seen in attached and click ok, then reboot, the scan and fix will run during boot and will take around 3min

                                I add in my own experience with PC ....

                                Back in the old old days (1980 - 1990) - I used to own a Compaq 386-20e - a computer that was built like a M1A1 main battle tank. The motherboard was 8 ply, and the machine was utterly solid. 100% reliable. Impossible to find such a PC these days (at any price).

                                Next desktop (or rather - "floortop") is a huge monster - using dual Intel XEON chips and 32GB ECC RAM. Motherboard was GIGABYTE - I think - can't remember exactly now. It proves too noisy for editing video (the audio especially) - but I only had one or two blue screens - when I upgraded an incompatible device driver.

                                Fast forward to the present -

                                I have two Lenovo workstation laptops - W540 and P72. I removed their internal original hard-disks (those spinning kind) and plugged in Samsung 850 and 950 SSDs. The P72 uses Intel XEON processor - and has 64GB of ECC RAM. I went for the XEON because it supports ECC RAM - and in the long term - that ECC RAM will help avoid a lot of memory issues.


                                One suggestion - you have two editing workstations (I hope so) ... you can fallback to your backup machine if anything happens to your main machine. My case in particular - my fallback is the W540 laptop - the main workstation is my P72.
