Graphical Corruption on Hang

comment:1 Changed 4 years ago by anon4321

Guest is Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 SP. Both host and guest are up to date with Windows Update.

Guest is stable if only on CPU is enabled.

I have seen this too with XP x64 and Windows7 64 clients under a 64 bit gentoo host on an Intel Q9550 quad core. It happens randomly with 2 or 3 cores assigned to the guest. Using this daily the guest never lasts more than 8 hours without this crash.

3.0.10 contains guest SMP fixes to address such issues. Reopen if necessary please.

I still have this problem in 3.0.10. Slackware64 host, Windows 7 64bit guest. Crashes with graphical corruption with more than one core enabled. (Intel Q6600 with VT-x enabled)

Well, such comments are not exactly useful unless you provide the VBox.log of the session in question. I don't have a magic ball here to check your VM and host settings.

I have not seen this issue in 3.0.10. However, I have found another client SMP related issue:  http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/5422
