New CPU and MOBO - Cubase crashing after opening project

Hi all,

I’m using Cubase 7.5.30, on windows 7.

Recently my motherboard blew up, so I had a computer shop fit a new one, plus a nice new i7 processor, 32gb ram, and my original HDD’s - an SSD running windows/Cubase etc, and a additional 2tb drive for projects, samples etc.

I ran into some weird problems when I started the new system - firstly, 2 error messages would pop up when I started cubase (here are pics of them)

I then went to open a few projects I had been working on when the MOBO died, and found that on most of the projects, they would play for a couple of seconds, then make a glitchy sound, then crash cubase, resulting in this old chestnut, and cubase shutting down.

Any ideas on why this might be happening, and what I can do to sort it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!!!


Looks like it is time to “reactivate”.

I’m not sure about the Cubase error messages, but did the computer shop do a fresh install of Windows?

Most experts recommend a fresh install of Windows after a change of motherboard, to prevent driver conflicts. If you have an old, spare drive, you could try a reinstall of Windows, Cubase and audio drivers to see if you still get the errors.

I also should have mentioned…

If using a USB eLicenser, you might have it plugged into a USB3 port. Try a USB2 port.
