  1. I hope someone can help me with this. I am building a computer from scratch. Here is the configuration:

    - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Socket LGA775, 3 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache, 45nm
    - Asus P5N-D 2-Way SLI nVidia nForce 750i SLI Chipset Dual-Channel DDR2 667/800/1066 Mhz 2x PCI-Express 2.0 HD Audio SATA/eSATA GigaLAN
    - Corsair XMS2 Matched Pairs 2GB Kit (2x1GB) PC6400 DDR2-800 CL 240-pin Dual Channel DHX Memory
    - Seagate Barracuda 7200 SATA NCQ 3.0Gb/s 500GB 32 MB Cache
    - Samsung 203S TruDirect 20X SATA DVD Writer Lightscribe Black W/ Software
    - Galaxy GeForce 8800GT Overclocked Chipset (600Mhz) 512MB DDR3 (2000Mhz) Dual Dual-Link Display PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card
    - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Ultimate Gamer Case + Ultra X2 750-Watt Power Supply - ATX, 120mm Fan, UV Sides, SLI Ready, SATA-Ready, 20/24-Pin, Modular
    - D-Link DWA-542 RangeBooster N Desktop Adapter Wireless
    - Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition

    I was in the process of installing the driver for the onboard devices. It started giving me BSOD after I have installed the audio driver. I was able to boot in safe mode no problem. I tried restore to a restore point before I install the audio driver but it still give me BSOD.

    Attached are a couple of minidump. Can someone take a look at them to see if it is actually the audio driver that's creating the problem??

    Thanks in advance!!

    Quick question, did you install ALL of your drivers before installing any sort of Anti-Virus software? I read somewhere else on this site that Anti-Virus software can cause these issues, reboot into safe mode, and uninstall any Anti-Virus software, then reattempt to install your Audio driver.

    I'm no expert, but I sure hope that helps:)

    I haven't installed any anti-virus software yet.

    Inside the 2 MiniDumps:
    nvgts.sys: nVidia SATA "Performance" driver, please remove it.

    Note: If removing it doesn't help, format and re-install without installing this driver in the first place
