cubase dropout

OK, help a noobie...

I have a pretty new system, an AMD dual core 3800. When using CUbase 
SX3, after I've created a few tracks, I start to get dropouts, 
accompanied by the message "CPU overload/Audio drop out detected".

I have an ASIO-ready soundcard (E-Mu 0404). And I try to run CUbase 
without anything else running (other than what loads on startup with my 
machine).

If the problem is other programs loading at startup, does anyone know of 
a a startup manager where you can have everything you want to load on 
startup happen most of the time, but have some sort of preset to choose 
when you want nothing extraneuous to load at start up?

Could it be the VSTs I'm using? Groove Agent and Virtual Bassist in the 
same piece as well as 3 or 4 others?

Could it be the plethora of VSTs in my plugings folder?

Any help would be appreciated!

Assuming Windows XP (and I think Windows 2000 as well), it could be the
scheduling having that effect. Go to the Control Panel and find the
System item and double click it. In the System Properties dialog that
appears, go to the Advanced tab, press the Settings button in the
Performance section. In the Performance Options dialog that appears,
select the Advanced tab and in the top box entitled Processor Scheduling
make sure that Background Services is selected - this gives all programs
equal scheduling time. 

With Programs selected, the top program gets additional CPU time, and
takes CPU time away from plug-ins.

Thanks for the reply. I have that selected already, so that's not the 
culprit. I'll keep digging...and any other suggestions will be appreciated.

Next suspect is my sound card setup. Maybe I've screwed that up somehow.

I notice that often when I first load Cubase things playback great, but 
the more I playback, soon things get disjointed and dropouts start to 
happen. I've probably just got something set up wrong.

What's the latency set to? If it's quite short, back it off to around 8 or 
10 mS and see what happens.

I have an 0404 as well, and I have found on occasion that if you manage to 
push CPU too hard the buffers in the sound card loose sync, and this 
additional CPU is usually down to trying with too short a latency.

I have a latency of 8 mS on a Sempron 3000 (Socket 754) which works well in 
Tracktion and Cubase LE.

I have a latency of 2 mS with no problems... I suggest you to change
audio card ;)

You can download on www.mlin.net a small spyware-free and ad-free program 
that I use for years already. It is called Startup Control Panel. It will 
show up in your control panel, and you will be able to disable or enable the 
starting programs and drivers that you choose. The program is around 100 
Kilobyte.
