Even though a Repair Install is not supposed to touch your data I would suggest backing it up just to be safe.
It's also possible you have defective Realtek hardware. One way to find out would be to install a PCI sound card and disable the on-board Realtek device.

Open Device Manager, expand Sound.
Right click on your sound device (should be Realtek) and select Uninstall.
Click Apply and OK.
XP will rediscover the sound device and reload the drivers. May have to reboot one more time. See if that helps.

Perhaps the modified driver here: [Windows] BSOD error pointing RtkHDAud.sys
Can't test it but the download works and Avast says it is clean.

I will try them one by one. Start with reinstalling audio then testing the memory and the modified driver. If all fail then probably a repair reinstall or a total reinstall.
Is this order ok?

Just make sure you backup your data before doing the repair or clean install.

I've been looking online for more ideas and someone suggested somewhere to decrease hardware acceleration in Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Audio>Sound playback Advanced>Performance tab. I decreased it first by one notch but it wasn't enough, now have it decreased by two notches and it's been a couple of days without any bsod.
It's not a very elegant solution so I still intend to do an xp installation repair and if that fails then a total reinstall.
