Blue Screen of Death when running MIDI input to Lexicon Omega

I'm running Vista Home Premium on a Dell XPS 420. I've been able to get the digital audio interface of the Lexicon Omega working just fine, but when I try to connect an external MIDI device to the MIDI-in jack, my computer crashes with the Blue Screen of Death.

I've tried downloading just about every update and ASIO driver I can find, but I've had no better luck. This problem occurs with both Cubase LE and Sonar 6.

    I got support directly from Lexicon on this one. I was just impatient to get going, but they responded within one business day. My problem is solved! Here's what they said:

    To fix this problem go to your Device Manager. To do this go to Start > type Device Manager in the search field and double-click Device Manager in the program list.

    Scroll down to Sound, video, and game controllers and you should have 4 listings for Lexicon devices.

    Right-click the Lexicon USB MIDI port and choose uninstall driver.

    Disconnect and reconnect the Omega and let Windows install a generic USB Audio Device driver for the MIDI port.

    The Omega should then appear as the following:

    Lexicon Direct Device

    Lexicon Win USB 1-2

    Lexicon Win USB 3-4

    USB Audio Device

    This should fix the problem.

    I have similar problem with the Lexicon Omega. Nothing is recording on the audio. I have downloaded the latest drivers, have tried every setting I can think of. One odd thing, is that the outputs show Lexicon mac, but I run Windows XP. Am not sure how to change that, but it was set up on Windows XP to begin with.

    Any body have any suggestions? Do you have the phone number to Lexicon tech support?

I have a lexicon omaga drive but when i hook it up its like i need a 64 bit driver

Don't know what OS you're running. Omega has published drivers for Vista and 7 64-bit versions. They say they don't support XP 64, but when I hooked my unit up to my computer and the hardware install wizard came up the OS found and installed Microsoft published general USB audio device drivers for all inputs, midi, and mac USB channels of the Omega, and automatically set it as my default device. I hooked headphones into the Omega unit and could hear system sounds. So far so good. Went to My Music and fired up an audio file. Windows Media Player started up and the song started playing but I couldn't hear anything. Opened the same file with Audacity, could see the VU meters bouncing, but still no sound in my headphones. Went in to the preferences of Audacity, and manually set the speaker default to the Omega mac USB device. Hit play again and voila! I had sound. Closed the file, started WMP manually, went in to options, and again set the speaker default to Omega mac USB. Opened the same audio file and this time it played just fine. The driver files Windows used for my card were
C:\\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\, C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\ks.sys, C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\ksthunk.sys,
all version 5.2.3790.1830
Hope this helps everybody else with this problem.

Xps 420 keeps freezing or going to blue screen

Same with my Dell Vostro 420. At this rate I will just buy a new PC as I am wasting too much time on this. We tried usual stuff like cleaning inside, making cooler, removing certain virus software, still no luck. I have to restart 4 times a day and keep saving material. Can only restart by turning it off by pulling out power socket.

Omega Studio won't record to computer

The omega is like an external sound card. It has to be connected via your computer with a device driver,the software that came with the lexicon. Then you record on a software program such as Cubase.
Go to the guitar center for more help or go to google .com and type in lexicon omega. Lots of sights to look for answers or better yet go to lexicon omega's home site.
