    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    3 minidumps crash at cmaudio.sys. C-Media Audio WDM Driver. They have a bugcheck of 7F.

    1 minidump crashes at cmaudio.sys and has a bugcheck of D1.

    Try uninstalling/reinstalling your sound drivers. Also check for any updated drivers.

    If that doesn`t help. Go HERE and follow the instructions.


    One of three types of problems occurred in kernel-mode: (1) Hardware failures. (2) Software problems. (3) A bound trap (i.e., a condition that the kernel is not allowed to have or intercept). Hardware failures are the most common cause (many dozen KB articles exist for this error referencing specific hardware failures) and, of these, memory hardware failures are the most common.


    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Yes, your minidump crashes at cmaudio.sys and has a bugcheck of 7F.

    Maybe getting a separate soundcard would help.

    How do you mean!?
    Getting a Separate Sound Card???
    You mean two sound cards or...
    I got one integrated i disabled it because its not needed it is just in the way and no use for it cause i cant combine it with my sound system so i use the other one that i bought c-media and i can combine it with my sound system.
    The one that is installed with an fault when i bought it lol is VIA AC97.
    But you didnt said anything about changing irq value from 11 to something.
    I got only one port for Video Card for my Nvidia Geforce 2 MX/MMX 400 64mb
    im not big expert but i know much about windows xp sp2 so please help.
    Maybe there is a way with an program i saw that the options of irq are hidden
    so its possible that it can be edited maybe with that program(third party or something) like tweak XP that i dont have... :bounce:

    I`m sorry. I`m a little confused.

    Are you telling me that you already have a separate sound card? That is, a sound card that is fitted in a pci slot on your mobo.

    If so. Try putting the sound card in a different pci slot.

    You cannot change irq`s in Windows XP.

    Nooooo!!! :)

    Its Integrated so it means i cant move it anywere from my mobo not in any port, get it, and ive got 5.1 sound system it only fits in c-media sound device that is removable.
    so only c-media can be moved and did you read your private message ive send you read it ive discovered that irq options are hidden so we need to make it show, enable it. lol
    Could you explain me this ive moved my c-media device to another port and it didnt changed irq. i think that ive first uninstalled it and then when i changed the port installed it back. Maybe this helps. :approve:

    Ok, that is what I meant by getting a separate sound card.

    That is, a soundcard that fits in a pci slot.

    You would then uninstall all your onboard sound software/drivers etc and disable your onboard sound in bios.

    Why have you started shouting?

    Then maybe you`ll have time to take your pc to a pc repair shop.

    Ive Fixed It!!!!!!!

    Ive Fixed it i got to Bed yesterday so i didnt make it to post anything.
    You didnt wanted to help me so i got it myself.

    1)When you get the blue screen i got it from playin cs and you got an message on it read it and memorize it

    2)get an program that can help you read dump files somewhere here on techspot and the dump files are here %windir%(directory were windows is)\minidump so in usually cases c:\Windows\minidump

    3)when you saw the problem then you know what device it uses
    To see devices go to Control Panel\System\Hardware\device manager
    or right click my computer\Hardware\device manager

    4)When you got there see what device is it and then go to view and select Resources by connection and find that device under irq see if it uses with another resource(the numbers must be diferent, if its the same then it uses the same resource as the other device)

    5)if it uses the resource dont uninstall it or disable just turn off your computer and change its port(where you stick your device in) then start your computer again and see in the device manager/view/Resources by connection
    if it uses the same number, if not then its good, if it uses the same do the step 5 again.

    6)then go to and try to find the latest update of your device and install it. thats it youve fixed the problem.

    Dont try to go to device manager and click update it wont work it just searches your computer throught.

    in the step 6 in my case i got an sound card that uses the same resource(irq) as my video card so i updated it both to the latest driver i could find and changed the port of the sound card and this solved my problem.

    Usually blue screens:

    Irq not less or equal - You must change the port of the device(sound card in my case) just use step 5

    just blue screen nothing else usually it writes something about the middle field of the screen something like stop 0x000007f(0x00000d .....

    Update the drivers to the latest drivers

    Remember to when you got blue screen search the minidump out and see whats the problem if you dont got that program just post your minidump in zip file like attachments in your post to howard_hopkinso. :)
