hello everyone. I recently got a new computer and had nothing but problems with it from the get go. Most of the time it would boot up to the windows logo and just hang there and I had to turn the machine off and back on which led to blue screens…memory dumps …etc etc.
Then there was another problem that I thought at first was unrelated. Cubase would open… but when I closed it I couldn’t open it again without rebooting the machine first even though it would show up in task manager under processes.
So I did some searching on here and found another user with the same cubase issue and he solved it by moving the dongle from a usb 3.0 port to a usb 2.0 port. I did the same and it not only fixed the cubase problem but the bootup problem as well.
Naturally I am glad the problems are fixed but does anybody have an idea why it happened in the first place? Why does the dongle being in a usb 3.0 port cause hiccups like these?
