A "STOP 0x0000008E" Error Message Occurs in Wdmaud.sys this is all the help microsoft could give me about the bsod code. it popped up this morning on my buddys core 2 duo system, and does it just minutes after logging in.i built this thing about 3 weeks ago. and after i was done fighting the bad intel drivers it worked flawlessly. its xp home sp2 (installed from sp1 disc) and its had at least 600 microsoft updates since it was put together. and all im told from this code is to update the system. what does Wdmaud.sys do anyway?
