  1. Hi,

    I got 2 games that keep crashing at a specific moment (bos and gun); result is a BSOD with no info. After reboot, i get a minidump. I tried running it through WinDbg but it my first time so i don't know what im looking at. From what i can see, its something with the soundcard (onboard).

    Could somebody please give me some more info on what the cause is of the bsod and perhaps a hint/solution???

    i've included msinfo32 and minidump

    tnx in advance,
    Jannick

    os: winxp pro sp2
    motherboard: asus p5ad2 premium

    We need 5 or 6 minidumps in order to diagnose your problem.

    i've updated the link above with six mini dumps. I ran sisoft sandra on audio and memory, no problems there.

    thanks for looking at it. :eek:

    All your minidumps crash at cmudax.sys,and Vax347b.sys. which is you onboard sound driver, and the Alcohol 120% driver.

    The driver Vax347b.sys is a known issue on some systems/configurations.

    I therefore recommend that you uninstall the Alcohol 120% programme, and see if your crashes continue.

    Also, check for updated drivers for your onboard sound.

    Regards Howard :)
