It shows you ran it for 43 seconds. I would say let it run 10 minutes minimum.

Close any programs and run LatencyMon for 10 to 20 minutes. It doesn't depend on an issue with Pro Tools, but rather will highlight any issue with real-time audio.

Looks like it's your video card's driver. Always get the updated driver from the manufacturer's website, not the third party's website. For example, I have an ASUS NVidia card, but get my drivers from NVidia's website, not ASUS', manually searching for the correct driver. And I only install the graphics driver and physx, nothing else.

Once you install the latest diver, or update/upgrade anything remotely connected with Pro Tools, do the Trasher Dance: Close PT, backup your Preferences, delete Preferences, Databases and Plug-in Databases, empty the Recycle Bin, reboot, Restore Preferences, start Pro Tools.

Whenever anything goes awry with PT, the first suggestion is always to delete Preferences.

Thanks for the help. I reloaded the driver from the nvidia site and not dell. Also trashed my prefs and restarted. I was using it today and it did freeze up again. Only once though, which is a first. Its usually every 15 minutes. Im going to run LatencyMon again and i'll post the results.

Look at the "Help Us Help You" link at the top of the forum and post a Sandra report. Also look at this Thread for more optimizations and this Thread for Processor Affinity.
