NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

Might also be a good idea to create a ticket with it as well, as it could be that they can duplicate the effect.

The error that sticks out for me is:
WindowsError: [Error 1775] A null context handle was passed from the
client to the host during a remote procedure call

before you tare up your computer looking for hardware reasons check the visual c++ / number instalations
I don't know how to repair them, since removeing and reinstalling doesn't seem to fix it.

If the master snapshots fixed it, does this mean the next release (which

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to connect
it manually when I want to use it, which isn't a problem as I usually
have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's
method, although I suspect it will be fine. Thank you everyone for all
your help and tips, and at least I know how to retrieve old log messages
now! :D

Because most of the keyboard is frozen when this freeze happens. The

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to connect
it manually when I want to use it, which isn't a problem as I usually
have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's
method, although I suspect it will be fine. Thank you everyone for all

The problem with the Linda voice that I was experiencing was that she
basically sounded like she was distorted by being at max volume and too
close to a microphone at the same time, and there was something about
the way she sounded that was hurting my ears. I couldn't bear it! Were
you using headphones? I was.


As for the Braille Table thing, I was particularly annoyed by a few of
the inconsistencies because I got the Braille Display specifically to be
able to read fanfics and other things in Braille, as well as write in my
native writing language, so to speak. I haven't written much with the
display, partly because NVDA does not currently allow one to input
contracted Braille (which makes it less fluid for me to write,
especially when I accidentally do a contraction and have to delete a
number flanked by slashes), and partly because of the issue described in
this thread, though I haven't tried typing with the display when it's
connected for a long period. I wish I could type in Grade 2. Jaws users
can. :(

nvda_snapshot_brltbl_20160315 is the name of the file in the list, if
that's what you mean. I got it back in March and although the
experimental UEB tables added to it weren't perfect (Joseph told me it
was no trivial matter to fix the minor problems I brought up when I was
first testing it) it's better than the current one, which lacks "ea",
"cc" and "ff" contractions, as well as only showing format terminators
and emdashes (among other symbols) being replaced with eight cells of
weird code that disrupt the flow of reading.

That should graduate to master soon, if people don't find problems
with it.

For the braille table, what snapshot are you using now? You'll probably
need to merge it when 2016.2 comes out.

And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to
use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more
experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by
eight
cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and
formatting
representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a

want to evaluate it without installing it. I haven't used new
snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the
snapshots I've used have been stable. That doesn't mean that they
all
are. They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read
for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the
"display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building
toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or
next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as
the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display
plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's
circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took
longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up
properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I
don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin
but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer
for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

nvda_snapshot_brltbl_20160315 is the name of the file in the list, if
that's what you mean. I got it back in March and although the
experimental UEB tables added to it weren't perfect (Joseph told me it
was no trivial matter to fix the minor problems I brought up when I was
first testing it) it's better than the current one, which lacks "ea",
"cc" and "ff" contractions, as well as only showing format terminators
and emdashes (among other symbols) being replaced with eight cells of
weird code that disrupt the flow of reading.

That should graduate to master soon, if people don't find problems with it.

For the braille table, what snapshot are you using now? You'll probably
need to merge it when 2016.2 comes out.

And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to
use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more
experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight
cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting
representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a

stable or reasonably stable. You can use a portable version if you
want to evaluate it without installing it. I haven't used new
snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the
snapshots I've used have been stable. That doesn't mean that they all
are. They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

The page to see and download the latest snapshots is

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took
longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin
but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

The espeak bug is fixed in next.
That should graduate to master soon, if people don't find problems with it.

For the braille table, what snapshot are you using now? You'll probably
need to merge it when 2016.2 comes out.

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at

And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to
use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more
experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight
cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting
representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a

stable or reasonably stable. You can use a portable version if you
want to evaluate it without installing it. I haven't used new
snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the
snapshots I've used have been stable. That doesn't mean that they all
are. They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

The page to see and download the latest snapshots is

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took
longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin
but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to

Not noticed any change to Espeak here, but then I use Quincy and it may not show up.
Sometimes you can get different sounds by switching the thing away from sound mapper to the bespoke driver for the soune hardware you use.
as for Braille, I cannot say, though others on this list have claimed that the master snap has a better version. As a Matter of interest, have you tried the next snasnapshot as although there are dire warnings about this, the current one seems to be pretty stable.
brian
I wonder if its possible to import the old table into the newer version? Youwould need to ask this on the development list as its probably a bit advanced for here.

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...

I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month. However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable. You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it. I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable. That doesn't mean that they all are. They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

The page to see and download the latest snapshots is

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille

that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

Yes the master branch is the one that will become the release candidate in a couple of weeks or so.

Have a look here.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

window
was closed, NVDA started responding again. I also tried to activate
Narrator but it didn't work, though as I said, that didn't end up

warning repeats itself several times. In case each warning was subtly
different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille
error
that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

nvda_snapshot_brltbl_20160315 is the name of the file in the list, if
that's what you mean. I got it back in March and although the
experimental UEB tables added to it weren't perfect (Joseph told me it
was no trivial matter to fix the minor problems I brought up when I was
first testing it) it's better than the current one, which lacks "ea",
"cc" and "ff" contractions, as well as only showing format terminators
and emdashes (among other symbols) being replaced with eight cells of
weird code that disrupt the flow of reading.

That should graduate to master soon, if people don't find problems with it.

For the braille table, what snapshot are you using now? You'll probably
need to merge it when 2016.2 comes out.

And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to
use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more
experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight
cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting
representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took
longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin
but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took
longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin
but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to

have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to

the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to connect
it manually when I want to use it, which isn't a problem as I usually
have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to
sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's
method, although I suspect it will be fine. Thank you everyone for all
your help and tips, and at least I know how to retrieve old log
messages
now! :D

Also, I wonder if you can remove the Braille tables that are provided and put in tables from an older version of NVDA.  I don't know anything about this but again, this might be a topic of value that someone else might discuss here or that you might be able to discuss with developers.

Maybe it's good that you tried a snapshot.  You may have comments that would be of value to developers.  I believe there is a developers list or perhaps a way to leave comments for developers on the web site but someone else will have to comment on that further.

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Maybe it's good that you tried a snapshot.  You may have comments that would be of value to developers.  I believe there is a developers list or perhaps a way to leave comments for developers on the web site but someone else will have to comment on that further.

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.
 
The page to see and download the latest snapshots is

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Beware however, as next week is update week.

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

Just tried another thing that consistently got NVDA to hang recently,

window
was closed, NVDA started responding again. I also tried to activate
Narrator but it didn't work, though as I said, that didn't end up
mattering. Here's the log for that session, though I warn you, the
warning repeats itself several times. In case each warning was subtly
different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille
error
that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

No, to me unless there has been some significant malware or crash from a bit of software, then the registry can be repaired automatically by windows.

Beware however, as next week is update week.

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

was closed, NVDA started responding again. I also tried to activate
Narrator but it didn't work, though as I said, that didn't end up
mattering. Here's the log for that session, though I warn you, the
warning repeats itself several times. In case each warning was subtly
different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille error
that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

Exactly. Just do one thing at a time and test as I say disable to driver or remove it then test a lot. However I'd test with the master snapshot first before doing anything if you have not done so.

...I don't even know what you mean by half of what you said and all of
it sounds terrifying. All I can say is that since this wasn't happening
before I got my Braille Display, and that NVDA updated to 2016.1 only a
few days before I got said Braille Display, that I can only imagine it
is the culprit somehow. I don't have the bandwidth to chase down
software currently and the prospect of spending hours and hours doing
things that have me on edge the entire time and possibly not solving my
problem in any way (like when Firefox was acting up last year) makes me
very uncomfortable. I don't think this warrants such an extreme. It's
probably the driver for my Braille Display, as I had it plugged in for a
little while in conjunction with the snapshot, so I could read some
things in Braille, and then I disconnected it before I went to write. It
lasted a lot longer than it did previously, though it was at times slow
to respond. I'm a pretty fast typer when I get going so I thought it was
possible the system wasn't keeping up with my typing for some reason,
although Thunderbird's fine with it.

Hmmm well this is getting stranger and stranger.
Right now it could be anything from your braille display drivers to
hardware.
Firstly I'd tackle the os.
Since I don't know what is going on I suggest you just reformat.
Next I'd like you to do a chkdsk on the hard drive.
I'd also like you to do a hdd analisis with speedfan which you can get
online.
It almost looks like malware got in, or a bad drive or something like
that.
I have not had things like this on my systems but when I have it has
been dust in the system or a blocked fan.
I did a clearout of a system and replaced the power supply, and
regreased the heat sink and it got rid of that sucker.
Another thing you can do I guess is to get ccleaner go to the tools
and startup pain and save a text file of the startup programs and also
go to brouser cleanup and save the text files of that.
Anyway send me those files off list and maybe I can help you.
We need to establish if it freezes with nvda loaded.
I'd also like you to get a boot cd or one of them and get a sightling
actually run a memmory diagnostic for you.
I'd like a malware and virus scan to be run though it sounds like
hardware.
I'd also do a stress test with pcpitstop.
While pcpitstop is sensitive and wrigged for you to buy their software
and also while its got some adds in it, it is still a good tool in
telling you what could be the problem.
Next I'd also like to get updated drivers for your hardware
intel and amd have driver updaters intel driver update and amd drive
autodetect are what come to mind.
I'd also like to get a bios upgrade.
Out of all these it sounds like a bad power supply, busted fan or
overheating unit.
However if a sightling can do things without it locking well this is
getting a bit hard to diagnose now.

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to
connect
it manually when I want to use it, which isn't a problem as I usually
have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to
sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's
method, although I suspect it will be fine. Thank you everyone for all
your help and tips, and at least I know how to retrieve old log
messages
now! :D

Hi there: Do you think your computer could have mellwhere to
cause this
freezing?

I agree about chkdsk, but not reformatting and reinstalling. I never solved anything permanently by doing this, at least not after Windows 98!
I'd remove the driver next or at least disable it in the device manager.

Hmmm well this is getting stranger and stranger.
Right now it could be anything from your braille display drivers to hardware.
Firstly I'd tackle the os.
Since I don't know what is going on I suggest you just reformat.
Next I'd like you to do a chkdsk on the hard drive.
I'd also like you to do a hdd analisis with speedfan which you can get online.
It almost looks like malware got in, or a bad drive or something like that.
I have not had things like this on my systems but when I have it has been dust in the system or a blocked fan.
I did a clearout of a system and replaced the power supply, and regreased the heat sink and it got rid of that sucker.
Another thing you can do I guess is to get ccleaner go to the tools and startup pain and save a text file of the startup programs and also go to brouser cleanup and save the text files of that.
Anyway send me those files off list and maybe I can help you.
We need to establish if it freezes with nvda loaded.
I'd also like you to get a boot cd or one of them and get a sightling actually run a memmory diagnostic for you.
I'd like a malware and virus scan to be run though it sounds like hardware.
I'd also do a stress test with pcpitstop.
While pcpitstop is sensitive and wrigged for you to buy their software and also while its got some adds in it, it is still a good tool in telling you what could be the problem.
Next I'd also like to get updated drivers for your hardware
intel and amd have driver updaters intel driver update and amd drive autodetect are what come to mind.
I'd also like to get a bios upgrade.
Out of all these it sounds like a bad power supply, busted fan or overheating unit.
However if a sightling can do things without it locking well this is getting a bit hard to diagnose now.

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,

and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

If the master snapshots fixed it, does this mean the next release (which

Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to connect
it manually when I want to use it, which isn't a problem as I usually
have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's
method, although I suspect it will be fine. Thank you everyone for all
your help and tips, and at least I know how to retrieve old log messages
now! :D

I don't think its malware, reading the thread it sounds like the
braill table part of nvda and the master snapshots are supposed to
have now fixed it. Its been a while since I had a computer with one of
those displays. fartoo expensive for the low usage I have.

Hi there: Do you think your computer could have mellwhere to cause this
freezing?

Why wouldn't my workaround accomplish the same end but more easily.
Because most of the keyboard is frozen when this freeze happens. The
only
thing that works is the windows key and some function keys.

I see by this log that the driver for the display is still being seen. Is it possible to uninstall it and then set no Braille and see what happens.
The error seems to be saying that the display is trying to do something that it cannot, ie its out of range or something and if the driver is doing this it should go away if its a completely clean system.
I'd warn agains reinstalling the operating system or whatever, as all that achieves is mega hassle and a ticking time bomb until the problem starts again. Best to try to find the smoking gun, or at least that has been my experience of such things in the past.


Might be worth airing this on the dev list.

I forgot to mention that last log was made in the old snapshot I have,
not the official installation. But I would still like a translation of
those errors from someone who understands them better than I do.

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

Just tried another thing that consistently got NVDA to hang recently,
namely, opening the sounds manager in Control Panel and then arrowing to
the Sound Scheme tab. I thought it only did this because of the Braille
Display but I wanted to test it to make sure. This time, once the window
was closed, NVDA started responding again. I also tried to activate
Narrator but it didn't work, though as I said, that didn't end up
mattering. Here's the log for that session, though I warn you, the
warning repeats itself several times. In case each warning was subtly
different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille error
that shows up first—that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.

If the master snapshots fixed it, does this mean the next release (which
is hopefully coming sometime this month or next) will have the fix?
Because if so, I can just change the configuration so I have to connect
it manually when I want to use it, which isn't a problem as I usually
have to re-activate the Braille settings if I have to disconnect the
display for one reason or another, or if the computer's put to sleep. If
the fix is implemented next release, I'll adjust the configuration
again. If it does happen again despite this measure, I will try Gene's
method, although I suspect it will be fine. Thank you everyone for all
your help and tips, and at least I know how to retrieve old log messages
now! :D

I don't think its malware, reading the thread it sounds like the
braill table part of nvda and the master snapshots are supposed to
have now fixed it. Its been a while since I had a computer with one of
those displays. fartoo expensive for the low usage I have.

Why wouldn't my workaround accomplish the same end but more easily.
Because most of the keyboard is frozen when this freeze happens. The
only
thing that works is the windows key and some function keys.
