USB TC08 XP long run times and display problems

Post by vollerenergy » Thu Aug 25, 2005 4:18 pm

We have a USB TC08 logger connected to a new Dell laptop (latitude 510) running XP professional. The unit works fine except when after an hour of so of logging the active graph display becomes corrupted. The Recorder window loses icons and only displays the titles of the channels and temperatures (you have to guess where the buttons are). This is becoming an infuriating problem now as most of our experiments are several hours long and to have the display become corrupted so you cannot easily see what is going on is very disrupting.

There are no problems with any other programs, i.e. Excel which is open during the datalogging cycle.
