hi there
it seems that since i have installed these drivers- that i cannot get computer sounds and i get no audio from youtube videos. I have tried installing the drivers from the nvidia driver cd disc but i am still not getting any audio from youtube. the sounds on the playback videos on my computer work however i am getting no sound on aol or youtube.

sorry, i have had to restore the computer back to an earlier time to get the sounds back. maybe i should just install all of the biostar drivers except for the on board audio.

sorry that i didnt ask for advice earlier but i have not had much time to go on the forums, but since we have last spoke my computer seems to have gotten worse and it is still crashing unexpectedly at random times and to a more regular extent.
can you help me please?
when i use the computer i sometimes leave it on all day, every day, could this have anything to do with how it is performing?

Hello BReal59...

The error you're receiving is most often associated with bad device drivers. Did the error message include a mention of a file name...that would help to narrow this down. Failing hardware can also cause this error.

Do you have an XP installation cd in case we need to run some repairs?

Do you get this BSOD often?

What was the last driver installed, do you know?

Try running the machine in safe mode for a while, do the BSOD's stop while running in safe mode?

Please download and run WinAudit on the machine. Save a report in HTML format...this will generate three files. E-mail the file named Right.htm to me...I'll PM you with the address to send it to. This report will give me information on what's going on in your machine.

There is a short video tutorial for doing this audit HERE.

After looking over the report, all I see are a slew of explorer.exe hangs. While this points to the problem area, it isn't giving me the cause.

You stated in your e-mail that you had to open WinAudit using WinRar. Do all executables have to be opened this way...or can they be opened this way?
