As the title says. I purchased a ASUS Xonar D2X a few months back now, and what a headache it has given me. The biggest problem for me with it at the moment is the constant blue screen errors. And I mean constant, today it is being a bit worse than usual, 4 blue screen errors so far. My question to anyone out there is, have you heard of a solution to this? It is encountering an "uncorrectable hardware error" and I have tried changing the PCI slot is installed on, re-installed all drivers and software, updated motherboard, reformatted computer, and I still get this damn errors. My next solution is to throw the card out the window and buy a different one. I have contacted ASUS support but there is no answer yet.

I have attached the mini dump files for the past few days.

First and formost, if the card was a problem to start, you should have done an RMA on the spot.

Secondly, whats the rest of your system? The PCI-E cards [specifically the DX and D2X] have some known problems with nforce chipsets [and potentially any chipset with the NF2000; hence why I generally recommend the D1/D2 over the DX/D2X].

Third, you can give the ASUS Unified Drivers a try, though this sounds more like a genuine hardware failure and not a driver problem [in while case I'd expect IRQL BSOD's].

Forth, I assume you had no problems prior to installing the card?

Thanks for the reply, and I probably should have done an RMA, it's still under warranty so I should be able to sort something out.

My PC is running an i7 930 on a EVGA x58 SLI Classified with GTX 285's, and you are correct in assuming my PC was working perfectly before I installed this audio card.
There hasn't been any IRQL BSOD's, so I am also thinking its just a problem with the card. I'll wait to see what ASUS come back with and then I'll contact the place I bought the card from and see if I can get it replaced under warranty, if it is infact the card that has the issue and not just some for of incompatibility.

The fact its "Uncorrectable hardware error" points very much to a hardware problem on the card itself, but give the ASUS Unified Drivers a try in the meantime. [google is your friend].

I'll give the unified drivers a shot, thanks for all your help.
