my soudcard is working just fine the device manager has an question mark over "audio device on high definition bus"

Does it blue screen if started in Safe Mode.
How do you know Device Manager has a warning for Audio device, with the new installation when it Blue Screens.
Have you managed to actually load Windows.
Try reseating all cards and memory and check all connections.
If it is not integrated sound and the card is seated properly with all connections good then take out the soundcard and try again

Do you boot in safemode?

Do you install any hardware recently?

Do you install any video software or any update for your graphic card?

What is your mobo make and model name?

Do you have mobo chipset driver with you?


Rebot your system and press the key 'F8'

Windows menu, you will find an option "Enable VGA mode"

In this mode check play a movie and check whether it is freezing or not. If not than there is a problem with the display graphic card driver request you to uninstall. If it was an update you can uninstall it and re-install that particular driver.


Reboot your system and press the key 'F8'

In Windows menu, you have an other option "Disable automatic restart on system failure"

This will not restart your system.

The BSOD error report will be generated on the following location.

Full Kernel Memory Dump - c:\windows\memory.dmp

Mini Kernel dump c:\windows\minidump

Zip the dump file and attach it here for more in depth to find out the root cause.

Let's know if you got any other fix for your computer.
