I get intermitent crashes. The error is STOP: sysaudio.sys . This occurs without any set pattern. It may occur after bootup when I log into my profile, other times it occurs without warning while working in various programs.
I have a AMD 1600 XP processor, 768 MB ram (PC133), Windows XP ;SP2
MSI 6330 motherboard; VIA KT133 chipset. Sound card is a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value - I had a Sound Blaster Live Value prior to this and tried this new sound card as it appered to be the problem, but this is not the case. I also tried rolling back the driver to the original one, but that was no help. I use Music Match, and it has crashed while it was running, but other times I was working in MS Office programs.

The specific error is:
SYSAUDIO.SYS
STOP: 0xC0000005,(0X6F6F18CEE,0XF47D184C,0X00000000)
ADDRESS: F6F118CEE base at F6F13000, datestamp 41107fla

I ran Memtest-86 vs 3.2 but it found no problems with my memory. The only avenue I haven't tried is repairing Windows XP, but I only want to do this as a last resort.

Any ideas or suggestions

sysaudio.sys could be corrupt. You can get a replacement here:

Scroll down to bottom of list. It's second from bottom.

For WinXP it goes here: C\Windows\System32\Drivers

Overwrite existing one.

Hope that cures it.

Thanks. I will give it a try. However, I think I will get some of my IT friends to copy me one of a newer XP machine first.. Dynamiclink wants $15.00 CND to dowload this file.
