Videos are freezing on Sony Vegas . Why??

#1Kenshiro11226Posted 8/26/2013 5:52:36 PM
I have the full version of Sony Vegas Pro 12, and I have a Lenovo Y580 Laptop . Sony Vegas has been working on my laptop with no issues at all since January . My laptop would play and render videos without any trouble.

Until yesterday. Sometimes when I play videos on Vegas or try to edit, the video itself begins to freeze. While the audio will continue to play perfectly. If I restart my laptop videos will work temporarily, but then it'll go back to the same freezing issues.

This is what it looks like when playing a video

And another weird thing, is that Vegas now apparently taking a hell of a lot of memory on my laptop.

I dont ever remember Vegas taking more than 50% of my memory unless I'm rendering something. But i'm not. Even when I close other applications like firefox, it still appears like this.

Anyway to solve this, or any explanation as my videos on Vegas are freezing ? The only possible explanation is me accidentally clicking on a porn site. But i obviously closed it out immediately and tried using Malware Bytes and Windows Defender Quick Scan, but they both found nothing.

It's your CPU.

If it ran fine before, and then suddenly stopped, it's not because it's too weak.

Well I'm going to try out Windows Defender full scan, and then Malware Bytes Full scan. If both of them detect nothing..then I'm at a loss as to why it's suddenly acting like this.

Off the top of the head, maybe it is throttling down because of heat. Have you tried dusting out the laptop?

I doubt it is a virus, but if you are going to do a scan, do it in Safe Mode. In order to get into safe mode, restart your computer and continually hit F8 before it hit windows until it asks you if you want to boot into Safe Mode. Viruses can hide themselves when they are running, but they can be vulnerable in safe mode.

Admittedly, no. Any good or recommended ways to properly dust out or clean a laptop, without risking much in the process? Looked on google, and it seems like it's 50/50 regarding compressed air. I guess it's long overdue, since I've also noticed the left side of my laptop gets more heated than the right side. And it literally hurts to type on my laptop keyboard when playing a PC or PS2 game on it.

Alright, will do. I'll give an update after the full process

Sounds good. I would try compressed air for starters. Laptops are notorious for this kinda thing.
#9Kenshiro11226(Topic Creator)Posted 8/27/2013 6:39:47 PM
Yup, no virus. i'll have to get the air can in a few days from walmart,since my local stores dont seem to have it for some reason.
