Description horatio 2004-04-06 19:41:33 UTC
Running 3.6rc2 and j2sdk1.4.2_04 on a p4 2.8 HT 
which I haven't had any problems with so far. I 
only installed NB today.

NB starts fine and lets me work for a couple of 
minutes until this problem pops up. It looks just 
as if I pressed the reset button. 

After the first time I've been able to reproduce 
it two times in a row just minutes after 
rebooting and starting netbeans. It does appear 
like it only happens when I'm actually using 
netbeans, not when it's sitting inactive in the 
background, although I'm not 100% sure about that.

I'm also including my ide.log as a reference.

I am sorry but we need more informations , we can't do anything with
this if we can't reproduce it, so please provide as much informations
as you can ....

decreasing priority to P2 

What do you mean by "Hard crash/reboot/reset" ? (IDE doesn't run , JVM
crash with error log, IDE freezed, PC crashed/rebooted, .....)

Comment 3 horatio 2004-04-07 10:47:40 UTC
Please let me know what extra information is relevant, as I think 
there hardly isn't any.

I'm running a completely updated winXP pro installed on march 12. 
About two weeks ago I installed j2sdk1.4.2_04 and also a JRE. 
Yesterday I installed nb and immediatly the problem popped up.

I had just opened a new project, made an extension to JFrame, added a 
menubar and a panel in the form editor and set some properties. Then 
all of a sudden my screen goes black and my pc reboots. Just as if I 
had pressed the reset button. At first I though that that might be 
what happened so after reboot I continued working for a couple 
minutes more until it happened again. This time I was running nothing 
in the background except for NIC diagnostics, audio and graphics 
control panels all in the system tray. *Poof* reboot. Just like that. 
No warnings, no errors, nothing.

My system:
P4 2.8GHz HT on an Asus P4P800 (Not overclocked!)
2x256 MB Corsair DDR PC 3200 in Dual Channel mode
Seagate Baracuda 120GB SATA in a single NTFS partition
Ati Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
NIC and sound onboard on the P4P800

what about video drivers?
Comment 5 horatio 2004-04-07 10:55:20 UTC
Haven't had any problems with those so far. Still using the ones that 
came with the card. Updating them now to see what happens.
Comment 6 Lukas Hasik 2004-04-07 11:00:04 UTC
Maybe duplicate of issue 39766.

You can try to add this into your ide.cfg ($NB_INSTALL/bin/ide.cfg) file:
"-J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true" (without the quotes), it may help.

Comment 7 Marian Mirilovic 2004-04-07 11:01:22 UTC

try to run IDE with  switch

If it works, it's duplicate of issue 30952....

Do you have the same problem with all other Java applications ?
Comment 8 horatio 2004-04-07 11:07:37 UTC
Haven't noticed any problems with Java programs so far, but I must 
say I haven't used many either since buying this system. Got any good 
candidates for testing if the same problem pops up?

One big difference from the issue you mention is that my system 
doesn't hang, it simply resets itself.
Comment 9 horatio 2004-04-07 11:31:38 UTC
Have had only a couple of minutes to test it, but it seems like both 
methods (the switch and a driver update) each solve it _on their 
own_. At least I can continue working now. Thanks everyone! I'll be 
sure to let you know if anything else pops up.
Comment 10 Jan Chalupa 2004-04-07 11:55:04 UTC
This really looks very similar to #30952, although that has been
supposedly worked around in JDK 1.4.1 updates and fixed in new ATI
drivers. More likely, this is a new issue with similar symptoms and
causes. Might be worth mentioning in the 3.6 release notes (if it's
not too late).
