    Windows 8 Release Preview (64 Bit)

    BSOD Randomly Shuts Off


    I have the 64 bit release preview. My machine randomly flashes the BSOD for half a second, then restarts. When I click for details after, it says something about memory dump. I caught it on the BSOD something about watchdog. I can't find any rhyme or reason. And this isn't like the other thread, because I don't have AVG. Here's my dump:

    Dude it's your audio.

    Either get something better and disable onboard in bios or find a newer version of the driver below and install:

    Code:
    0: kd> lmvm adihdaud
    start             end                 module name
    fffff880`02752000 fffff880`027ba000   ADIHdAud   (deferred)             
        Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\drivers\ADIHdAud.sys
        Image name: ADIHdAud.sys

    Thanks a ton. I had to use a Vista driver, I'll see if I can find a newer one.

    You're welcome. There is no science behind what I told you. There is only my guidance but it should be well after following. If not, let us know and somehow, someway, we make it happen and it's all good.

    Have fun no matter what!
