Howdy,

I have been receiving BSOD's for the past few months, with seemingly increasing regularity. It sais that windows was forced to do a memory dump, and the critical information is as follows:

*STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xAA4D0742, 0xA73DCB60, 0x00000000)
*empuia2k.sys - address AA4D0742 base at AA4C3000, Date Stamp 436359d9

While searching the windows help page I could not find information on my specific problem, but similar problems seem to be caused by either viruses or out dated bios's. Now my computer is relitivly new, so i would assume that the bios is relatively new and wouldn't have such a MAJOR error in it. I also ran Symantic Anti virus, which found nothing (and it is up to date). Any ideas?

Computer Specs:

Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard
Intel core two duo Processor
Radion X1950xt pro graphics card
2g ddr2 ram

Emupia2k.sys is related to an audigy sound driver?

could you search for which file you have, maybe we can get to the bottom of this?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Is your spelling of the filename...correct?

It makes a difference.

an audigy pci card would explain a lot?

everything should be spelled right. I wrote down the exact BSOD message, even cases. That should be exactly what it sais.

As for a sound card, I have the sound blaster X-FI Fatal1ty pro series sound card.

being disabled in device manager is not as good as being disbaled in bios or by jumper(old computers)

if it's disabled in bios, you might try another pci slot, some motherboards don't handle the irq routing well

an update or reload of the drivers for the sound card would seem to be in order in any case
