    Hey.

    I have a macbook pro, the intel one. m computer came back from repair and everything was working fine or i thought...

    now when i try to convert an .avi file to dvd file it crashes around 10%

    I used visualhub before and now it crashes, so i uninstalled that and got xilisoft dvd creator, and now this crashes..

    any reason why this may happen. it just shuts off at 10%

    i can leave it running over night or use anything else on here w/ no problem.

    any help will be appreciated. thanks!:cool:

    edit: it doesn't really crash, not the programs i mean. the whole computer just kind of shuts off

    Maybe it's the file you're trying to convert to DVD or maybe all of your ram is being used up.

    EDIT: Wow, if your computer is shutting off that's weird. I don't know then.

    it appears it was overheating, it was never doing this before, i downloaded smcfancontrol and am able to convert fine. computer must work harder converting video then doing anything else
