Ok, here's the problem:
When I export a map, any map, right after the "writing DIB info" (or something like that) bar is filled, my computer crashes. All I get from the map is a corrupt Bmp, and if I'm lucky I can squeeze the map out of it. (I had this problem with my recently posted "noble residence")
My computer started crashing before I exported anything in DJ. For a few days before that. It just turns off when no one is touching it (especially also when no program is running).

Any suggestion?

*scratches head* uhm ...
Might there be a OS problem? Did you look in your start-up list to see what is started up?
This could also be a Java problem if it just happens with DJ.

For more detailed analysis, we need more info about your hardware. And what Java environment do you use?

Sorry for taking so long to respond.

Here are some possible causes and solutions. (#1 is the least likely, going down to #5 the most likely)

1) Cause: A virus.
Solution: Run your virus scanning software or do a remote check with Trend Micro's Housecall.

2) Cause: Bad HDD.
Solution: First run "Check Disk" (My Computer > Right-Click the drive > Properties > Tools tab > Error Checking section > "Check now" button) to determine if you have bad sectors.
If you do not, it is not your HDD.
If you do have bad sectors, it is just a matter of time before the entire drive is dead. You would need a new HDD and a data transfer from the old drive.

3) Cause: Bad power supply.
Solution: Unless you have another machine that you can test this on (and you feel very comfortable doing it yourself), you will need to take your machine to a local tech shop.

4) Cause: Bad RAM.
Solution: This is really easy to fix ... but it can be a REAL pain to diagnose (always intermittent) ... unless you take it to a tech shop with a dedicated RAM tester.

5) Finally, The Most Likely Cause (and you'll hate this one): A Bad Motherboard.

Side Note: In the past month, I have diagnosed the machines of 2 of my friends with exactly the same intermittent shutdown problems.
Both times I tested all of the causes and solutions that I stated above, as well as several others.
Both times, in the end, it was the Motherboard.

Solution: Unless you have diagnosed and replaced Motherboards several times before, you'll need to take it to the tech shop, or to a very technically oriented friend. (Like my friends did to me. )
Motherboards are not as incredibly expensive as they used to be. But the labor ... that's what will get you.

Good luck, and BTW, which make and model of Motherboard do you have?

I had a simular problem and after changing my 300w power supply to a 500w, it went away.
