Specs: Windows 7, 4gb
I use proshow gold for rendering slideshows and recently the computer turns off whist the video is being rendered . Funny thing is it only happens with Proshow !
I used Proshow 4.51 for years and no problem , then i downloaded the new Proshow 5 and it started doing this , however since removing Proshow 5 and sticking with Proshow 4.51 this is still happening , i have reformatted my computer and reloaded windows 7 home premium .
My computer is Samsung RF510 with nvidia Geforce with cuda core i5 4 processors , all in all it is meant to be all bells and whistles for gaming so i can't understand why it would do this.
Proshow say it is my computer that is doing this as they can burn a show i have created at their end .
I can burn a show using Wondershare or movie maker but i like Proshow and want to continue using that especially 5 .
So if any can help i would be grateful.
Also i have dowwloaded speed fan and it doesn't detect any fans or voltage only tempreture

Check that all cooling fans are working as it sounds like the PC is overheating so the PC shuts down to prevent hardware damage.

Proshow is more resource-intensive and more taxing on the CPU (therefore more heat is generated) compared to WonderShare or Windows Movie Maker, which is why those two applications don't cause the overheating problem as much.

I have just downloaded the new driver via an email to update , thought Proshow may work but no , noticed that my nvidia 330 doesn't support direct x i wondered if i could change it to a more updated nividia card which does support direct x .
Proshow does state direct x 8 or above , however my computer used to work fine before so .
If i could change the nvidia altogether that may be the better option but i don't think i can , so m best option would be to upgrade to a more up to date card .
Any ideas
