I am a novice/hobbyist so be gentle on me. I will provide as much information as I can.
I am using a Scarlett 2i4 USB interface with Cubase 7 on a Dell laptop running Windows 10. Sorry I don’t have specific hardware information but the laptop specs should not be a problem. With Cubase open, the Scarlett will unexpectedly lose power momentarily then come right back up. After it is back up, there is no audio like the interface is not connected.
Normally, I would save my project and close Cubase but this causes it to crash my computer. Yesterday, I found that when this happens if I go to device setup, switch drivers, the switch back to the Scarlett drivers, it comes back up and works temporarily for an unspecified amount of time after which it inevitably does the exact same thing. I am sorry if my terminology is incorrect as I don’t have access to Cubase right now.
I recently moved Cubase from a different laptop running Windows 7 that did not have this issue so I assume it has something to do with my laptop hardware configurations or settings. Any ideas?
