Blue Screens Of Death

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently bought a C-Media CMI8738 Sound Card for my computer. Every now and then when a sound plays, this can be while listening to music, playing a game or accessing the sound control panel I get this blue screen with information on it about some error. I have attached a picture of the error below.

Sounds like you are getting conflicts with the driver you are using. Go in to device manager remove the driver then the sound card device and rediscover the sound card and install the driver again.

did you oc at all? if you did i try to go back to defualts and see if you get the same error. if you do then its most likely what the other guy said is a fualty install of the driver. I would go to the manufactures website and see if there are new drivers for it to update it. Sometimes OEM drives are buggie and need to be updated

I think he meant my processor or graphics card. Anyway, I did what Lurch_Chaos said and so far it seems to be working, I will post something else if it starts again. Thanks.

If it bombs out again. You may be looking at a rma. OH when you reinstalled the driver did you look to the manufacturer web site to see if you have the latest driver. A sound card can sit on a shelf for a long time and drivers can be updated leaving the ones that came on the cd a little stale.

I installed the latest driver off the website instead of the one off the CD.
