I'm brand new to blender. I downloaded the newest version from online (2.79.2), checked to make sure I have good requirements for using the program (which I do), I start up the program and literally all I did the first time was move the default cube along the x,y,z axis and it crashed before the minute was up. I could hear the computer running harder for about thirty seconds before the crash.
The second time I turned on Task Manager to see if my CPU was peaking while using the program. It only spiked a little when turning on the program but moving the cube didn't cause any spikes. BUT even just turning it on and not touching anything within Blender at all the program still crashed. Tried this many many times with the same results, tried an option recommended by other users to change from None under compute devices (system options) to CUDA and picked my card - made no difference. Tried running a python script that worked for someone else and that didn't work. Disabled the intel chipset that was recommended by another user so the computer would only be able to pick the Nvidia Graphics Card for use - didn't help. Any ideas? Not sure where I can look for crash logs for this?
