I just found out that my PC started freezing occasionally and it doesn’t matter if I’m on Linux, Windows or other OS.
I’ll describe what happened.
I was using blender modelling a simple scene then suddenly, the display just went off and the keyboard’s lights too went off as well. I tried pressing a few keys and moving the mouse but nothing happens. I hit the reset button and the PC seems ok again.
I though it was an hardware problem but it only happens when Blender is in use. Even when it was minimized, this happens too. I think this freezes started to occur when I started using Blender 2.70. i downloaded 2.70a in hopes that the problem will go away but it chooses to stay.
They say this freezes occur when modelling high poly scenes.Well, I always try to keep the polys down as much as possible using decimate modifier. Whenever I want to model a big scene such as a city scene, I will split it on multiple .blend files.
I will use 3ds Max for now and see if the problem will reoccur. It if did, I think it is an hardware problem. Probably GPU which is odd because I only use CPU rendering so I’m not putting allot of stress on the GPU.
I have not played any games on my PC ever since.It’s just strictly for 3d modelling still scenes only.
