Windows 7: Windows is closing unexpectedly while using Handbrake and rendering

Ahhh!!! A clue!!! If it closes when running Prime95, then it's likely a memory problem.

Prime95 stresses 3 different things:
- CPU cache
- memory controller (built into the CPU on AMD X3 processors)

Run Prime95 with the Blend, Small FFT's and Large FFT's. Track the time until it errors out on you (either errors in the Prime95 program, or errors with the system stopping/crashing). These tests should be run at the same time in order to keep the results consistent. If it crashes fastest on Blend, then it's likely to be a RAM problem. If it crashes fastest on either of the other tests, then it's time to run CPU stress tests.

Then run some of the free CPU stress tests here: Additional Hardware Diagnostics

Windows 7 Ultimate X64

Bro I did all tests as you told. Windows crashing timings after starting every test like this.
Blend Test: 45 Sec Approx
Small TFT: 20 Sec Approx
Large TFT: 25 Sec Approx

So today I have contacted my processor's customer care center executive he told me to bring my processor to their Service Center after 2 days. I'll also go to RAM servicing center on the same day.

Any way thanks a lot for your support and nice to meet you bro. Again you proved SF is best...

Windows 7 Pro 32-bit

A simple solution that worked for me is to run HandBrake with a priority of Below Normal. This seems to prevent HandBrake from running at 100% on all processors and causing the unexpected and sudden shutdown.

I think the root cause is a Panic Attack!

Screen turns jagged, goes black and then BSOD but only occasionally. I've had this crashes happen to me only 4 times in a whole week already....

Handbrake 0.9.6
Just a comment for Handbrake users I have found the recent release of the 64 bit version Handbrake 0.9.6 to be a "bit" flaky. Norton Insight community report a similar finding. I'm sticking with the new 32 bit version of V 0.9.6.
