What were the last things you added to your  stack?

Do you have a backup copy of your stack from a week ago that still works?

Can you open your stack and it only crashes after certain events?

Can you set 'breakpoints' and step through scripts? Look for any instance
where the script suddenly steps to the very end.

Some other details like;

Rev Version, (DreamCard,Studio)(2.6.x,2.7)
OS Version
Hardware - speed and ram

might also help others on the list help you.
