Sounds crashing my PC (need suggestions)

Recommended Posts

Guest w2sjw

Fellow Simmers,I am at a complete loss at this point trying to figure out what to try next - I get a complete BSOD that comes back with a 'Machine Check Exception' any time I try to use the fairly-loud JT8D sound sets on Erick Cantu's 737-200 and 727-200 models (the sets that are 'designed' for them). I have an Athlon 3500+ with a SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS Gamer Edition sound card in this machine.The strangest thing of all is that the BSOD's don't occur when I use the 727's with Richard Probst's panel (a great panel, but I prefer Ken Mitchell's).I have seen a few posts around that others get the same high-pitched squealing whine, then the sim locks up, and then XP crashes. Has anyone else come to a conclusion as to what might be causing this and what to look at next? Erick's 737's & 727's where 2 of my most favorite kind of planes to fly (next to the SGA DC-9 & MD-80 sets) which, by the way, DO NOT crash my PC at full throttle or volume. Anyone's help here is greatly appreciated!!!

I did a DxDiag test with no problems. I also forgot to mention that this mobo is an Asus A8N-SLI (so it's a fairly new setup).Scott

May sound totally unrelated, Scott, but have you checked your video drivers? Any recent driver upgrades?-Jeremy BurchThe Ozark Dogfighter http://forums.avsim.net/images/wedge.gifHappy Flying!Pilot-The friction locks are causing the throttle levers to stick.Mechanic- Umm, that's what they're there for...
