The BSOD's with USB audio aren't a regular problem - they just appear more often in the BSOD forums than a lot of other problems.
The point here is that BSOD's are actually fairly rare - and most people don't ever experience them on a regular basis.
There's a range of BSOD's - from the very simple to the very complex. The simple one's are easy to fix, where as the more complicated can take quite a while to fix.
Just FYI - here's how I do BSOD analysis':
- first I rule out 3rd party drivers (over 90% of BSOD's are due to this)
- then I rule out hardware (less than 10% of BSOD's are due to this)
- then I look at Windows problems (less than 1% of BSOD's are due to this - as long as Windows Updates are fully up to date).
I may not follow the above list exactly. For example, if it looks like you're havinging issues with Windows Update or if it looks like you're missing updates - I'll ask that you update Windows Updates as the very first thing. But each thing that we do helps to narrow down where the problem lies.
First and foremost. You've replaced the driver that was blamed in the memory dumps. Now is the time to see if that fixed things. So I wouldn't do anything further to the system until you see if that has worked.
A BIOS update from within Windows isn't as risky as one that has you boot from a disk to update.
The reason here is that the software in Windows can check for the suitability of the BIOS update for your system - while the bootable disk can't.
I suggest updating the BIOS from within Windows routinely - and rarely suggest that anyone do it from a bootable disk.
Are you experiencing any wifi problems? Let's leave the disabled wifi device alone for now. It may be necessary to enable it later on, but for now we're busy trying to fix the audio issues.
