I’m not sure what is going on here.
Every time I try to render an image of what I’m working on, Blender stops responding and eventually my computer goes BSOD (if I don’t do a power reset first, and I missed the windows error message on the last BSOD.) I’ll get a render in the render image editor, but then, if I move a mouse, or if I try to re-render or cancel a render, or even if I do nothing at all, Blender goes Not Responding and eventually dies and takes the rest of my computer with it.
This has never happened to me in previous versions.
I have downloaded the latest 2.77a zips ( both 32 and 64 bit) from Blender.org and run them standalone, I also have the Steam version with the most recent update. All versions cause the same problem when trying to render a scene.
I have updated my graphics drive to the newest possible even trying the beta currently available (wondered if there might be a fix in that) but just like the most current stable the render crashed my computer.
Anyone else experiencing the same or may found a fix to stop the behaviour?
I’m about to try earlier versions of Blender to see if I get the same result as I know they work. If they crash my system, then I’ll have to suspect something else is afoot.
