    I’ve never had this problem before but now, every time I try to render any Vegas 8 project as MPEG2 for Blu Ray, the rendering gets to about 15% and then crashes the computer (which is running Windows 7).
    When I render the audio component as AC3 that is fine. Also, I tried rendering the project as an AVI and that worked fine.
    I’m not sure why this is now happening. I’ve rendered successfully as MPEG2 files many times and burned Blu Rays.
    Does it sound like one of my settings has changed or something?

    Nothing I can remember. Although there was a Java update icon flashing the first few times this happened. It was asking me to update some Java thing. Eventually after about the third crash I did the Java update, but maybe that is causing the problem?

    Does it always crash at the same point, or is it “approximate”?
    What are the crash symptoms? BSOD, Shutdown, Error message?

    Hi Steve,
    It seems to be approximately but not exactly the same point where it crashes.
    No blue screen, no error message. The computer just completely turns off with no warning.

    Oh no no no….Something else from Vegas is going on there.
    Do a system restore back a couple of days (even before the
    Java thing) and see if this shutdown still persists.

    “The computer just completely turns off with no warning.”

    This is almost always a cooling problem.

    [Stephen Mann] “This is almost always a cooling problem.”

    Yea, try taking the door off the computer and point a fan at the insides and see if the render goes further. You might want to clean the dust out of your computer while you’re at it; especially between the fins of the CPU heat sink.
