Blue screen with Blackmagic cards


Recommended Posts



I am using decklink extreme PCI and decklink SDI on the same PC to capture live and PPT, I noticed that sometimes when this cards on and I do update from the production PC the Blue screen (BSOD) pop up on the projection screen. did this happen to any one?


I am using Windows 7 64

WO 5.3.1

all the drivers up to date.

my pc hardware its not important as it happened with different PCs with different hardware.!!

Blue screens are always caused by OS/driver/hardware issues, and can not be caused by a user-level application, such as WATCHOUT. Since we have lots of customers using Blackmagic cards successfully with WATCHOUT, my guess is that it's something related to your hardware.

Thanks Geogen this was really helpful


I downgraded my ATI driver but this alone didn't really work with the latest Decklink driver 7.1 so again i downgraded the decklink driver to 6.1 and it work fine on all the display PCs, problem solved.


thanks all
