Crash (Stopped working) when adding a new material. 2.69


I’ve been working on a head mesh for a couple of days now, and I was just about to add a material to it. Problem is that when I try to create a new material either in the right properties panel or in the node editor Blender just crashes. This will happen every time and I’m in a state where I can’t go on with the project.

I’ve done sculpting, retopology, some more sculpting and then unwrapping.

I’ll give you any info of my computer if you need it or any crash report file if there is any, except the entire blend file due to the fact that I want to keep it for myself.

My computer is a brand new Asus G750JX laptop, having no problems what so ever to handle Blender or any other software. Running on Windows 8.

Blender 2.69
Downloaded addons: import BrushSet

Quick update!
Just noticed that when I start up a new clean file and change from blender render to cycles render, Blender just shuts down without any warning or “stopped working” message.

It’s getting late so I’m off to bed. Any help is appreciated.

This is a bit embarrassing, but I solved it by restarting my computer… who knew.
