Have a Toshiba MX with XP version, have extended Ram to 2GB all programs run perfectly, except when running the Flt.Sim 09, after 5-10 Min the computer shuts down.
Always delete back up system, Skype, Google, etc. which might interfere.
Please advise what could cause the prompt shutdown.

Here's what Microsoft recommend: Windows 7 system requirements Microsoft Windows
Note that this is a minimum system requirement and it should not be taken as meaning that such a system will perform to your satisfaction. It depends also on what you intend to use your system for.
However you should consult your system manufacturer's page for their recommendation if possible.
Generally, most people say that you need at least 2GB of RAM, preferably 4GB or more if you have a 64-bit version of W7. (note that if you have a 32 bit version, you cannot use more than 4GB [3.5GB]of RAM anyway Conversely, unless you are planning to get 64 bit Windows 7, there is no purpose in having more then 4BG of RAM).
I would say to run Windows7 well you would a bit more RAM.
What OS are you using? If you have a 32-bit OS, this is the normal behavior. The extra 0.75 GB isn't directly addressed by the OS; it will be used for part of the memory cache. If you had a 64-bit OS, you would either see the full 4GB of memory or have a POST memory error on boot. For most Windows OS versions, you can check your version by going to the System Control Panel. On XP through Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel. Then go to System and Security > System. If you do not see x64 at the end of the OS title, you have the 32-bit OS. For Windows 8 from the desktop, use the Charms menu (Win+C) or Windows Tools menu (Win+X). Then from Charms, select Settings and then Control Panel. From the Tools, go to Control Panel. Select System and Security > System. Read the line "System Type" in the System section. I hope this helps.

Download a copy of CCleaner and run a cleaning on it. After that use the registry cleaning function on it (making sure to save a back up of the registry of course). Do this once a month.
There is a RAM testing program that you can download and install onto a thumbdrive that will test your RAM to make sure if isn't faulty. Memtest86+ is a good one. You can download it here. I have used the "Auto-installer for USB key" to create a thumbdrive that will load the program when you start the computer. Once you have installed it on the thumbdrive, restart the computer with the thumbdrive in, and set the BIOS to load the USB before the HDD in the boot device order. (generic directions here) If you can, test only one stick of RAM at a time. This was if there is a problem detected then you will know which stick of RAM is the troublemaker.
Finally, download a good disk defragmenting program and defrag the hard drive.
Windows has a lot of programs running in the background which eat up the system resources and that you do not need for Cubase.
Do a CTR+ALT+DEL and end task on everything except Explorer & Systray, start Cubase and see if that helps.
u can easly use 2GB ram but due to low processing power u avoid havy programs run together. check that cpu use not more then 80% regular it may get harm. so use 2GB ram without any worry. just avoid havy programs run together.
Yes, it should run WinXP. The minimum system requirements to run both Windows XP Home and Professional are 233Mhz, 64Mb RAM and 1.5GB hard drive space. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 that still runs XP, a little slow, but has run smoothly for 5 years.
The setupdd.sys error is most likely a due to a defective hardware like RAM. Try installing only one ram if you have two to see if either one is defective; it should work for most users.
