Windows 7: BSOD - New and powerful computer - possibly related to audio drivers

BSOD - New and powerful computer - possibly related to audio drivers

Hi, my PC is relatively new, only built it late last year, and it is meant to be an audio workhorse, but i use it to game as well.

The first time it BSODed it gave a 'problem with hardware' error which made me really scared. At that time I forgot to turn enable minidumps, so I couldnt post here for help. Since then I have gotten a BSOD once more with minidump enabled - I have attached it to this post. Could anyone help me diagnose and fix this issue?

Also, I am using the nvidia geforce 560ti.. and the latest nvidia drivers cause my computer to freeze up occasionally when I watch youtube videos. The youtube video will turn black with pink lines and my computer would freeze up. Apparently some others have been having the same problem.. does anyone know anything about this?

Computer specs:

i5 2500k non overclocked
8 gig ram
geforce 560ti
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

The only .dmp was from over three weeks ago. It indicates lxionixu42s.sys which is your I-ONIX U42S 4x2 USB 2.0 Desktop Recording Studio driver. Try to find a more up to date version of the driver or re-install the driver or software it is associated with.

The following drivers may be contributing to the crashes due to their age, and they should be updated (if possible):
Code:
BS_I2c64.sys Mon Jun 16 00:45:18 2008 (48560BFE)
mcdbus.sys Tue Feb 24 03:34:07 2009 (49A3CD1F)
BS_I2c64.sys - BIOS Flash utility
mcdbus.sys - MagicISO


The BugCheck itself points to memory issues:
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).
    warning   Warning
    Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Thank you for the reply. I checked and the lxionixu42s.sys driver that caused the BSOD is already the latest version.. what do I do in this case? Is it just a buggy driver and the developer's fault?


Regarding my RAM, are they faulty? I will run the memtest ASAP and update you soon.

It may be a buggy driver. Could also be related to the RAM problem. Best way to find out is to remove the software and see if the crashes stop. If you still have crashes, upload the reports and you can always re-install the software once we determine the true cause.

Let us know how the Memtest86+ diagnostics go.
