Windows 7: BSOD IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL, randomly or during music playback

BSOD IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL, randomly or during music playback

My computer has been locking up without a BSOD for two or three days now, during random things: programming in Dr. Java one day, and Minecraft another, but both time listening to music. It finally BSOD this last time, and I tried to figure out what was the issue using Bluescreenviewer and Windbg, but I can't figure it out. I've not changed any drivers recently, I've run Memtest86+ before when I had problems and it returned no errors. I've run at stock speeds/timings and still had issues.

I see other people have had similar issues solved here, so hoping someone can spot what I didn't.

Welcome

Your Creative sound card driver seems to be causing a BSoD for you.

Get an update on its driver. (Uninstall the earlier ones and install latest)
Code:
1: kd> lmvm CTEXFIFX
start             end                 module name
fffff880`06063000 fffff880`061c0000   CTEXFIFX T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: CTEXFIFX.SYS
    Image path: CTEXFIFX.SYS
    Image name: CTEXFIFX.SYS

Going to give it a day or so, but found the drivers and installed them. Was using unofficial drivers by DanielK due to Creatives poor support for Windows 7 64-bit on their older cards.

I think the sound card is still an issue causer; have had system lock-ups w/o BSODs to go by, but they seem to be sound related. I'm getting popping and crackling in my speakers after the last lock-up while playing World of Warcraft.

Where is the seek bar when I am playing an audio file? Am i missing something? Is this not an important feature? The fast forward does not seem to speed up at all either. It is frustrating when I have a 2hr mix that I'd like to skip ahead in.
