As the title says, I received my first BSOD while playing a game the other night. I used Windows Debug to analyze the mini dump, and it said "Probably caused by: HDAudBus.sys" or something along those lines. Not sure what to do about it, as it only has happened once. Cause by ntkernel, double fault I believe (0x00000008):
It was probably down to just the game, and not windows it`s self.
It happens on my system from time to time as well, its ok aslong as it is not happening every time you play the game ect, and if it works ok with other games without the error.
Maybe have a look to see if there are update patches for the game you are playing might sort the problem out. Or try updating the Audio driver for windows 7, see if there is a new version of the driver out provided by Asrock on there support page for driver for the board.
Thanks for that! I did a fresh install of W7, the only drivers I have are labeled as "Windows HD Audio Drivers". I can't find a way to update those, should I just download the newest Realtek Drivers? I think that's what I was using before.
I've tested my ram just to be sure, 5 passes with Memtest, is there anyway to run diagnostics on a motherboard to check for faults, if that could be the issue?
