Hi folks ,first post here.Sure hope I'm posting in the right place.I have had the bsod error message a few times but much less since I re-formatted.In fact it happens so little i'm almost prepared to live with it but it really bugs me to know something is wrong.There doesn't seem to be any particular app I'm using or doing anything specific when it happens.the last error I got was 0x0000000a(0x00000054,0x0000001c,0x00000001,ox80502cco)I have been doing a lot of googling and after ruling out the memory and driver updates the list of possibilities was so big I decided to re-format.Everything worked so good for awhile that I thought the problem was solved.I run a few recording based apps and a high end sound card plus a midi controller.my thought was that maybe there was a confict with one of these devices so I did the reformat.I guess my question is would putting my recording apps on another hard drive with its own operating system be a good way to rule out any conficts I may be getting.Also is it possiable to have a dual boot system where both os's are xp pro.

Thanks very much for the quick reply.I downloaded who crashed and ran it.It has scanned 5 minidumps and they all point to my soundcard drivers.I'm sorry I do not know how to copy and paste the results here if you can tell me how to do that I will post them.I have just got the latest drivers for my soundcard yesterday but will check again to be certian,also when my new card was installed the onboard one was disabled in the bios which I assume is the right thing to do.Getting late in my part of the world so I will have to leave this till tomorrow.Thanks again for your help I feel like I may finally be getting somewhere with this.Cheers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Yeah, it looks like your sound card is giving you a problem.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of hits on Google about problems with this card.
Is it new card, under warranty?
Did you notice that error, maybe when getting out of hibernation/sleep mode? Did you try to move the card to a different PCI slot? Did you try different driver?
That's about all, their tech support propose: http://forums.m-audi...read.php?t=3064
