Cubase 9.5 dropping out, blue screen, latency

Here is my system: i7 Sandy Bridge, Cubase 9.5.10 PRO, Windows 10 x64, EVGA GTX 970, Dual monitors, 16gigs mem, Asus mobo, RME UFX connected via Firewire, UAD Card.

I’ve been using Cubase for YEARS and it’s been rock solid. Since Cubase 9.5 my midi is horrible. Even though the meter hardly moves, I get drop outs and pops. All of my drivers are latest release. I don’t know what to do except go back to cubase 9.0 PRO. It’s very, very discouraging.

I heard the issue was Nvidia, which is what I have… Should I uninstall the drivers for the graphics card? What should be my next step?

Please any help will be greatly appreciated!

Best Regards
