Cubase 10 won't work with new GPU

Hey everyone,
I recently installed a new GPU (1080 ti) and now Cubase won’t start up. It always kind of crashes in the loading screen initialise: VST audio systems. Anyone had that before? I seriously can’t find a way to avoid this and i cannot disable my VST plugins because it also won’t let me do this. I’m really struggling right now. Got covid and I don’t know what else do to. Steinberg won’t answer my ticket.
Best regards

Hello and Welcome to the forum,

Good to contact support, and just be patient. It may take several days before they get in touch.

Meanwhile I suggest to check/update the graphics driver if not already done.
I’d ‘re-install’ the NVIDIA drivers as ‘Clean and new’ install, omitting all but the ‘core’ driver.
On my system this made my Cubase stable again (albeit Cubase 12 in my case)

You are on your own with this one - Steinberg dropped support for all versions of Cubase earlier than Cubase 11 effective from 1 October 2022.

It sounds like the issue might be with a VST plugin. I would ensure all your VST plugins are updated to the most recent version you have a licence for and try again. If that fails to solve the problem, I would see if Cakewalk by Bandlab will initialise with your current VST plugins.

Another way to proceed is to install a Cubase 12 trial then, if that gets you running, upgrade your Cubase licence to version 12 at 40% off in the current sale.

Thanks to both of you. Let’s be honest. I think it sucks that they dropped their support for Cubase 10. I’ll try with Cubase 12 then.
