When I link a dwg file or reload a dwg link, not only does Revit crash, but my entire computer crashes as well. I have a 4 gig hard drive, so I don't think memory is an issue. Please help me with any suggestions you have! Thank you. (I use Revit Architecture)

2008?

It's not your hard drive it's working memory so memory may be an issue.  Use your task manager and watch your performace tab to see what happens in your memory area.

Thank you, WWHub.  I had done that procedure and saw that the memory had shot straight up on the graphic chart.  Are there any suggestions as to how much memory should be sufficient for this task?  If it's not memory, are there any other theories?

The perception of Revit is fragile within our firm, so I really need to resolve this to be able to perform this basic task.

I checked with our IT department, and I do have 4 gig of memory.  Can you have to much?  Please help!  Thank you.

You really want 2gb of ram at a min and 3 or 4 is prefered. It sounds like you have a fairly old system if you only have a 4gb hard drive. You may want to contact your resller and find out what the recomended specs are for a new machine.

Have you turned on your 3GB switch?  See here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/item?siteID=123112&id=8018966&linkID=9243099

No, I don't believe that the 3GB switch has been turned on!  I didn't know it existed.  I will see if this resolves the problem.  Thanks again, WWHub and Nick.  I appreciate your help.
