I’m not sure this is really a software issue; I suspect it might be a bad video card or motherboard issue even, but I have to start someplace so here goes. I have a brand new i7-based windows machine running windows 64 bit with 32 Megs of Ram. I’m running Cubase 6.5/64 bit with a RME 9632 Hammerfall audio card. From the day I got the computer, it has crashed frequently and catastrophically (= you cannot close down the frozen app with Task Manager but must reboot the computer). At first I thought it was related Cubase but then I noticed it also happened when just playing back a QT movie. It does not seem to crash running EXCEL or WORD, which is why I’m beginning to think it may be a video card issue. Anyway, it’s driving me absolutely nuts and I have no idea what could be causing it or how to approach fixing it. Has anyone had issues like this?
