    looks like a driver issue,

    cmuda.sys is the C-Media WDM Audio Interface, for the C-Media AC97 on-board sound cards.

    have you lately checked or downloaded your latest sound driver? compatible
    for your OS ? ;)

    and what is your motherboard model? do you use any other PCI sound card?

    This is often a driver problem , rather than a patch, due to the fact that you are using Windows 2000... there was a time when nobody produced the correct drivers for AC'97 Windows 2000. There are plenty that will work with a little experimentation... For the Intel motherboard, you can find them at Intel. Otherwise, you will find them with experimentation in one of the RealTek or VIA installs. You can find a lot more info by doing a Gurgle search for AC'97 drivers... Read through that stuff in thos listings... for Windows 2000 drivers instead of Windows XP.
