Windows XP Guest video hangs

Reported by: jhowk Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.2 Keywords: Windows XP guest video hang
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: other

Description

I've run into this problem on both Linux (CentOS 5.2 and Ubuntu 8.04) and MacOS X. For no apparent reason, I will leave a Windows XP guest (SP2) running in vb2.0.2 and at some point the video (either directly using the GUI or headless with VRDP), will hang and becomes completely unresponsive to input. The only way to correct is to power off the guest and restart. I've attached the log and a screenshot of what it looks like.

The problem is that the timeframe for this to occur is extremely variable. On the CentOS host running the same (i.e. cloned) guest may exhibit this behavior in hours to weeks (literally). On the Mac it also happens but usually less that 24hrs from guest start. Same exact issues, and unfortunately the same exact resolution is required.

If you need anymore info, glad to help. --Jason.

BTW, I've left the vm running if you want any more information.

No such problems experienced with Windows guests on VBox 3.1.0, on any host. (tried standard GUI, not VRDP)

Vbox team: I recommend closing this as "too old" or "worksforme".

jhowk: Retry with VBox 3.1.0, and updated Guest Additions, and post new logs.
