  • Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) from sound card?

    I keep getting BSOD's after playing for more than an hour...

    I've heard several rumors that it is related to the Creative Audigy ZS 2 that I have in my rig.

    Rig is otherwise healthy: Core2 duo E6600/4gb DDR2/RaptorHD/Nvidia8800 (XP pro).

    ...I tried updating sound card drivers last night, but it said i have latest drivers. Creative forums are riddled with complaints about bad drivers, so maybe im not alone?

    Can you uninstall the drivers, and use the basic ones?

    BTW, If it continues to be a problem, do you have onboard Audio on your motherboard that you could use for a while?

      This probably will be of no help whatsoever, but I have the exact sound card and do not experience these problems.

      I am using driver version: 5.12.4.1196 - date 8/11/06

      ABIT AA8XE mobo, 4GB DDR2, ATI 800XT, blah blah blah

        I think my drivers are same 8/11/06, i'll double check later.

        appreciate the reply, but jealous that your card works ! (pirates have all the luck!)

          Only hardware change recently was addition of 120mm case fan. 550wt ATX power supply should have enough juice to run this too, i'll check connections and give it a good dusting.

              Warehouse, whats your BSOD say... something about locked page file? I BSOD every two maps since Vista install. I know a page file isn't sound card related, but my smart O/S believes the error is related to my sound card... Just some food for thought?

                Try a program called driver cleaner. Could just be corrupted


                If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

                    I had the same issue about a year ago. I found that the fan on my mobo had crapped out and my video card was overheating. I added a heat sink and was good to go.

                        I once had a similar problem with Splinter Cell... turned out to be the hardware acceleration of my onboard audio.

                        Try playing with the slider under the Audio tab of DirectX Diagnostics (run DXDIAG).
