i ran into a weird issue. I’m running Windows 7 64-Bit (no SP1 yet). I have one ATI Radeon HD 4550 and one ATI Radeon HD 5450. Both drivers are up-to-date.
Today i tried using one of my Waves plugins, but instead of the GUI showing up, my screens blacked out and after about a few seconds windows was back, with a little message saying that the display driver stopped working but windows was able to reset it.
After this Cubase is frozen and i have to kill the task.
I heard that Waves uses OpenGL so i assume this has something to do with it. I read that AERO has something to do with it. I had it disabled. So i enabled it. And at first this seemed to help, but the problem soon re-occured.
Has anyone experienced this before? Does somebody know how to deal with this?
I don’t use the system for any fancy graphics. So i do not need high performance, just stability.
Any tips and hints welcome.
