please help.. yet another BSOD problem

  1. hello everyone... here's my BSOD minidump analysis... is the problem really as it claims (sysaudio.sys)?

    i recently had to RMA my graphics card (GeForce 6800GT) and the card they sent to me was not new... i wouldn't be surprised if it was someone else's RMA'd card!

    ... so i'm wondering if it's really sysaudio.sys or if its the graphics card. i have been experiencing a lot of crashing out of programs (memory could not be accessed, or something like that) recently so it's not an isolated problem.

    anyway, any help would be appreciated!

    oh, and if it is sysaudio, how would i fix that?

    here's my minidump:

    It could be, uninstall your audio and run the test again if the error goes then you know for sure thats the problem, trouble shooting is simply doing the obvious first then if that doesn't fix it go from there.
