NIOS II Console shows nothing

Honored Contributor II



I am trying to run a very simple nios system with a timer and onchip memory with RTOS hello program using Quartus 11 and QSYS but the console shows nothing . I tried to run a hello world example but it doesn't work too. 


The console shows : 

Starting processor at address 0x000801B4 


then nios II console shows nothing and neither does the command shell. 


The onchip memory reset vector address is 0x8000000 


The system is attached and I am using a pll but it only multiplies by 1.

I solved the problem by using an old project that used to work. I don't know what is the cause of this problem or when it happens.
