    Your first error is 0xD1: Driver iIRQL Not Less or Equal are usually caused by faulty drivers though they can also be due to faulty or mismatched RAM

    The driver cited as not being able to be loaded is cmaudio.sys which is onboard sound. When you updated your drivers did you do this from your motherboard website or directly from CM Audio? If you haven't already try your motherboard website and find your particular model and download drivers from there.

    One minidump was unreadable.

    Two errors are 0x8E and these are almost always caused by hardware and are particularly a strong indicator of corrupt memory. Since both simply cited hardware I suggest you run MemTest on your RAM.

    See this link and follow the instructions: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html
    There is a newer version of MemTest avaiable.

    This test will automatically take over at the rebooting of your PC.

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.
