Kmixer.sys: PSU issue?

  1. I've been having a BSOD issue that is always related to kmixer.sys. I have never really been able to find any conclusive evidence as to the source of the problem, I've replaced the RAM & the mobo, as well as throwing in a sound card, but to no avail. I never thought about the PSU being a problem, but after downloading SpeedFan, it came back with these results.

    +3.3V: 1.82V
    +5V: 5.67V
    +12V: 4.86V

    I'm still a pretty big noob with hardware and parts and such, and this certainly seems like a PSU that would need to be replaced. Would this be causing a BSOD though? I do notice that it occurs only when there is music/sound playing, this is just driving me crazy.

    Looks suspicious to me

    If results are correct, it's a wonder it turns on (ie 12V is actually 4.86V)
