Drivers for audio and video are causing lockups and restarts in Windows XP

Almost everyday and sometimes more often my computer will simply restart. When it comes back on I send the error report and it says that the problem was caused by an unkown device driver. Until recently I had both the audio and the video drivers installed and running. I disabled the audio through windows(not through the BIOS) and when it happened again the error report came back as saying it was the video driver and to change some things(like update the driver and Manually decrease the hardware accelorator for your video adapter) I did the first and have no idea what the second means so i went into the BIOS and set the Video from auto to 32MB enabled. All day yesterday I had no problems until I turned my sound back on and then it locked up on me after about an hour. Then I restarted and turned off the audio in the BIOS and when i started limewire and it was checking the file contents of old downloads and it locked up on me. I was previously having the same problem with my torrent downloader and the lockups and restarts happened so often I finally gave up and reformated my harddrive. Then I had so many problems reinstalling that I don't even want to get into it. Can someone please help me cause the only thing i can think of that it could be is the motherboard. Do I have to get a different one or will getting a sound and video card do the trick.

I think it's the usual problem of a sound and graphics driver conflict. What has probably happened is Windows update has updated sound drivers for your mobo, and they don't always work well. If you still have the motherboard cd, install the original drivers for both sound and video, or download from your mobo's web site, but make sure you uninstal the present drivers first. If all fails i think your right to install an AGP graphics card and dissable the onboard graphics, as they are only cheap for a decent 128Mb or 256MB card. If you wish to check the sound and graphics click Start> Run, then type 'dxdiag' without quotes in the 'OPEN' box then press enter. This will test all sound and video as well as drivers. Good luck, don't give up.

I can't play any audio and video files

Is this new system? Make sure everything is sound in device manager. If it's not get latest drivers from manufactures website. If everything seems fine and this is new system you probably need to get "codecs". If system is running Windows XP try "nimo codec pack" or "xp codec pack" just google it, download install. restart your computer and everything should be fine. For other operation systems you need to do a little research on google. "video sound codecs Windows Vista" for example. Good Luck!

On intel 82945G motherboard, restart never works (computer stalls - XP and Vista)


You may want to check the version of video drivers that you have installed. You will find drivers for the onboard video here. If you need to check th version you have installed, you can find that information here.

You may also want to try temporarily disabling you power management option to see if that if whats causing the problem. You can find that info here.

Also, if neither of these option corrects the issue, you may want to try Windows Update by opening Internet Explorer and clicking Tools > Windows Update.

Another idea is to see if it will restart in safe mode by turning off the machine and then before you see the logo start pressing F8 about once every second until you see the Advance startup menu. Then choose Safe Mode with Networking (you will need to use the arrow keys and the enter key. You will see alot of drivers go down the screen but this is normal. Then choose yes from the warning dialog box. Then attempt to restart once everything loads. If that works it is something in the startup that is causing the problem. You can start msconfig by clicking start and entering msconfig in the start search box and pressing enter. Then click the start up tab and you can deselect the options one at a time there.

Hope thsi helps. Please rate this informsion.

If your drivers are from trusted source just click ok continue when the windows signing for drivers pop up window appear.

Now if you click ok and then the system fails to load and then give you a blue error screen, its caused by either
  1. The hardware or its drivers cause conkflict to the system, because your drivers are not from a source you can trust and they are not in compliance with windows OS features and as a result can not run in a windows OS. So get a fresh copy of the drivers from a trusted source preferably the product manufacturer
  2. The hardware itself is faulty and on installing to XP it causes a conflict in which case you can try the Sound card on a different PC and see if it runs, otherwise you need to replace it.
  3. (Assuming XP has finished loading the OS) Sometimes XP fails to unistall the previous drivers, if this is that case goto the device manager (windows icon >right click > properties >hardware > device manager) select ypur current sound card unistall the driver that is there and then restart your machine and load the new drivers again

Motherboard upgrade

The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware. My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ?? Let us know how it turns out.
