Default Playback engine problems

I'm running a 002Rack with a G5 (Dual 2gHz, 2GB sdram) on 6.9.

Recently (within the past couple of weeks) playback on my protools system has been reduced to a few seconds of audio then it will start breaking up freeze and give me the "operating system held of interuppts for too long" error message. This is the most pervasive prolem but pro tools has crashed three times within the past couple of weeks whereas I've never had a crash before then. I have 99% processor power dedicated to protools and the problems occur with very undemanding sessions with minimal rtas plug-ins, and on very complex sessions that, in the past, have run flawlessly.

I've tried everything that I can think of short of reinstalling pro-tools. I'm sorry if this explanation vauge but I just don't know what the problem is.

Any help would but appreciated enormously. Thanks.

Try reducing CPU Usage to 90% and let us know if the problem still occurs.
