I had to install a new motherboard, and with it, I had to reinstall my Windows 7 OS.

Everything works well, I had reinstalled Blender also.

When I quit with CTRL+Q or from the menu: File/Quit, I get a windows popup:

"Blender has stopped working" 
"Windows is looking for a solution."

When I quit by making the console visible (Window/Toggle system console), then closing with the red "X" button, I don't get the message.

How can I make this message go away? It's quite annoying.

Googling shows no results for this problem. I've been using Blender for years (not so much recently), I never had such a problem.


hardware: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.80 GHz, 4GB RAM. Motherboard: Asrock G41M-S3

software: 64bit Windows 7 professional

    $\begingroup$ Have you already installed latest drivers (graphic) and Windows updates? $\endgroup$ – stacker Sep 2 '14 at 19:31
  • $\begingroup$ First thing was to update my windows, and also I've installed the drivers from the cd which came with the motherboard. (Currently I use the integrated video card) $\endgroup$ – Adamsan Sep 2 '14 at 22:16
  • $\begingroup$ the bundled CDs are usually outdated, try to install the latest drivers available online. $\endgroup$ – stacker Sep 3 '14 at 20:56
