    I've installed my pc, and as usually i install an audio driver. But, in the middle of installation my pc restarted and viewed bsod. But after that, my unknown audio device is not seen. And the audio didn't work. So, I installed the os again. It still didn't work. But, suddenly there's an unknown device driver popup and I inserted my cd driver. But, in the middle of installation it viewed BSoD and the audio driver lost again.
    Here's something I got from dumpcheck :

    Filename : sysaudio.sys
    Address In Stack : sysaudio.sys+1ae4
    From Address : 0xf2679000
    To Address : 0xf2687d80
    Size : 0x0000ed80
    Time Stamp : 0x48025beb
    Time String : 14.04.2008 02:15:55
    Product Name : Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    File Description : System Audio WDM Filter
    File Version : 5.1.2600.5512 (xpsp.080413-2108)
    Company : Microsoft Corporation
    Full Path : D:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\sysaudio.sys

    I don't know how to use these info, but hopefully it helps here. If anyone know, please help...

    Howdy,

    Not sure what you mean "I've installed my pc"

    Could you explain more.....is this a fresh install and was XP on this system before. Did you get any CDs with the PC.

    Is it a desktop and does it have a make and model number?

    There was xp and linux. Then I format it all. Now I'm using xp and linux again.
    Usually the audio automatically works on linux. But now it doesn't. Is it about the hardware??

    Could be but more likely to be the two Systems together.

    I would try just XP and see if the driver installs. Where did you get the driver?

    The cd driver came with the motherboard. Yea, I install linux inside windows. But, it's no problem before.

    I install the OS for many times, but the problem is : the unknown device (audio device) isn't shown.
    Even when I checkd the device manager, dxdiag, BIOS.
    It just a miracle when I saw the pop up. and I want to install it with newest driver from internet to avoid the BSoD or something like crash, if I could.

    Did you get Chipset drivers with the CDs?

    You should install the Chipset drivers first and then re start the PC and then install the other drivers.

    After that restart the PC again and check in Device Manager and see that there are no yellow waring
