System blue screen when using ReSharper 4.0

Hi,

I really do have a strange problem. It takes now already week to find out what happens.

Over here I work on a project for my customer, named TAU.UniversalTestFramework that uses NUnit to run tests. If I work on this solution the Visual Studio 2008 editor flickers, the current highlighted line becomes sometimes black and then the system crashes and finishes with a blue screen where is to read that the nv4_disp.dll caused the crash. If I deactivate the ReSharper 4.0 add-in there is no flicker and no crash.

But most stange is, that if I open other solutions, e. g. NUnit 2.4.7 or an older bigger solution that I developed for another customer, all works fine with a active ReSharper.

Does anybody has an idea what can cause such strange behaviour?

Asking greetings

Reiner

It's a problem with your (Nvidia) video drivers. See if you're running the latest/most-stable version.

Hello Reiner,

It sounds like you have malfunctioning video card or drivers. Looks like
pretty popular problem: http://www.google.com/search?hl=ru&q=nv4_disp.dll+bluescreen&lr=

Hi Will,

no, that's not the problem. I already got a new developer PC, then I got new graphicadaptors; it's the NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500. Then I tried all driver from old ones to new ones.

And do not forget: It is really just if I open this one solution.


Sighing greetings

Reiner, a BSOD is always either a bug in kernel mode code or a hardware problem.

The crash you're seeing is happening in your NVidia drivers, but it is possible that some other KM code (another driver) is actually causing the problem, or your card or motherboard is faulty, or overheating, or whatever.

Horrible to diagnose, I know, but it is just an unhappy coincidence that it's being triggered by this solution with R#, and I think you'll waste time if you follow that route.

Hi all,

I solved the problem. Strange is that is is o.k. if I deactivate ReSharper so it seems to be a combination of two installed add-ins.

I do have installed the SlickEdit Tools 2.0.0.2 for Visual Studio too because of its functionallity especially of their code Annotations. But particularly this is the problem. There is an option named "Display enhanced text markers" for this annotations which displays the marked line in a fancy way with a colored background with round corners. If this and ReSharper is activated the system crashes. If this feature is disabled all is o.k. :)

Therefore I'd salute if both companies take a look at this problem because the rendering of the code and the displaying of some signs seems to leed to a graphical problem.

EDIT: It is still not 100% o.k. Sometimes VS 2008 crashes but not longer the whole system and not so often.


Explaining greetings
