I’m having a bit of a nightmare recently.
I have been working with Cubase 8 for a little while now without problems. Certainly not any BSODs. For some reason after a week or so of not using cubase I get BSOD when loading a composition. Normally I would think this as being a hardware issue so I have tested things out. I detached my fireface 400 and the BSOD seemed to stop. I then attached it again whilst cubase 8 was open and it didn’t BSOD.
I tested out different VST’s that I commonly use. I found that when I opened kontakt 5 it have a BSOD.
I reinstalled the latest update for kontakt 5 and then tested it again. It seemed to go away but then it just have a BSOD again after a short while.
I still have cubase 7.5 installed and so I fired that up and loaded the same track into 7.5. This worked without any BSOD and I didn’t have anything happen within the 3 hours I was working with it.
I’m really not sure what is going on but it can’t be hardware. I have not installed anything new within the last month.
Strange thing was that I had the latest version of 7.5 installed (7.5.4) but it was showing 7.5.0. Very odd. I had to reinstall the update 7.5.4 again. Not sure why the update didn’t show up. I installed it soon after it came out.
Bios shows everything as it should be…all voltages, frequencies are correct. I do not overclock.
Running windows 7 64 bit. 32GB ram. I7 4770
Any ideas ?
