Interesting development last week - GITHub posted a 20.4MB 64 bit version of Deep Sky Stacker v4.1.0 and its much, much faster - I just stacked 20 images of M20 and all up it took about 3 minutes.




Have to play with it some more - but it looks pretty much the same - just the stacking is a lot faster, not sure about the registering but stacking was wow the first time around!

I think it more likely there may have been an under voltage at low usage issue (no idea why it took so long to manifest unless a Windows update automatically triggered it.  An updated BIOS may have side stepped the issue by raising an auto / default voltage for the detected CPU.


Still watching the stability but so far so good!

Asked on Whirlppol forums - they are quite good.  They ran thru my dump file - concurred it was hardware related bug, said the idle CPU voltages seem low - suggested I update my motherboard BIOS and see if a new BIOS better manages these new CPUs.  Did so and no crashes for two weeks :)

Fresh reinstall on a re-formatted disk - the nuclear option - sorted it.  Total p.i.t.a.

Scorptec said send it back and we will fix / replace whatever is wrong :)  So will likely do that next week!


From WhoCrashed:


Just ran Whocrashed thanks for the suggestion.  It could provide very little information - it just says it thinks it is an unspecified hardware fail:

The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.


2 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. No offending third party drivers have been found. Connsider using WhoCrashed Professional which offers more detailed analysis using symbol resolution. Also configuring your system to produce a full memory dump may help you.
