    i just recently got a Sound Blaster Audigy Sound Card and since i installed that when i start to burn a cd i get a blue screen error but only when i go to burn a cd does that happen...
    i copied the last error i got it was...
    STOP: 0x0000000A (0xffbe0000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x8050dd72

    at the top it says....

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL....

    what is the problem??
    is it the driver???

    now here is the interesting twist when i uninstalled the driver and the program then i tried burning a cd it burned without any problems so it is the sound card or driver...
    thanks all for replying....
    take care

    It's a driver conflict, mainly to do with the driver verifier. I have found this link in the Microsoft's Knowledge Base

    Do you have a Linksys Network card installed or any make of a network card installed? Apparantly that's also a key problem area that causes the error. (Also I am assuming you have W2K or WXP because that's the only OS that has this problem)

    just purchase a cheapo $10 card and you should be fine.

    I guess it's something in the driver that is causing the error

    PS try uninstalling and then burn the CD (with your new sound card in) to test the theory of the net. card

    I didn't see that name crop up as a complaint so it should be fine. Just make sure that you have uninstalled the drivers for the current card before you install the Belkin card.

    But like I said, try to eliminate the problem by burning a CD without the network card in, but with the sound card in. If you are still getting the error then you will know that the sound card is responsible and then you can get the correct/workable drivers for the card.

    Just curious, did you happen to see what file (usually a .SYS system file) that was causing the error like netlink.SYS or USB.SYS etc

    Also I have noticed that you have made a post before regarding the dualboot system (linux, W98 and WXP). Have you done that upgrade yet?

    ok i didn't take the net card out i did uninstall it in device manager and i got to 100% and in its final stage i got the blue screen and the error was this...
    STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xBF908794, 0xEFB8E7D0, 0x00000000

    then under that it says....

    WIN32K.SYS

    ADDRESS BF908794 BASE AT BF800000 DATESTAMP 3DB6D462

    I think that was a D cant read my writing...lol
    where it says 3DB6D OR 0 462

    should i try it with the network card out or do you think its the sound card??

    OK, because I know that the other guy did not mention that you will need to install the 3 OS in a perticular order. I think it's Linux, W98 then WXP. You cannot install W98 if WXP is already installed. Plus you will need to make sure that all the partitions (I guess except the Linux partition, though I never use Linux) must be in FAT32 for you to see the directories on both W98 and WXP.

    As for your error I will look it up now.

    I think the error appeared because you have the NIC still installed the PCI slot. The 0x0000008E error is showing as ethier a memory problem ( I doubt its that in your case) or you have a faulty hardware in the PCI slot. Massivesoft suggests taking out all of your PCI devices and install one by one to determine the cause.

    (PS for dualboots the installation should go in order of oldest to newest ie Win 3.x, Win 9x, WME, W2K, WXP. It has been said that you can install W2K first then Win 98. If you are planning to install WXP with other OS, make sure that you install the older one first. WXP doesn't like it when you try to install another OS after it.)
