C-Media causing BSOD

  1. Hi all,

    I have a problem with my onboard sound, its a C-Media AC97 device with latest driver. When im playing eve-online I keep getting blue screen of doom. I've disabled the restart after crash thing and have a minidump file that says it is probably the cmuda.sys file causing the problem.
    Is there a fix for this because C-Media don't want to know and Microsoft say "refer to C-Media". The driver is approved and signed my microsoft....slightly embarasing for them I should think.

    I couldn't work out how to copy the text from the dump file in the command area so attached file will need to be read with windows de-bugging tools.
    Hope some one here can help with this.

    Edit: The bsod only happens whe playing games, media players and applications don't have a problem. I don't have any virus or malware and I did a clean install of windows xp 3 days ago :)

    Try lowering the sound's hardware acceleration:
