### Compilation stalls

Having worked adequately for a few months, the TeXnicCenter (TXC) installed on my machine has suddenly refused to compile the document I'm writing. There have been plenty of warnings about labels that as far as I can tell are in place, and warnings that it can't find picture files (which then appear in the compiled document).

Here is an error in the transcript.
Runaway argument?[fig:electro(error circle)! File ended while scanning use of \@newl@bel.<inserted text>                 \par1.8 \begin{document}

Sorry if this is a bit confused, I find TXC something of a black box. Is it clear what I've done wrong?

Hi Basin,

Welcome to the LaTeX community!

Without a minimal working example it is impossible to be sure but this looks like you've forgotten a closing brace when you declared the label fig:electro. It should look like \label{fig:electro} in your source...

Regards
Clemens

...furthermore I recommend to delete the aux file since the error resides within this file.
