when i am playing games on my computer, after a little while the computer crashes to the blue screen, and it always says it is caused by the file kmixer.sys.... this happens on Ut2004, BF1942, and others but those 2 it happens the most on. I dont really know what kmixer.sys is, and i dont know how to fix it my specs: Windows XP AMD athlon xp2500+ @ 2.2ghz Geforce FX 5600 ultra 512 Ram Can someone tell me what kmixer.sys is, and how i can stop my computer from having these crashes while i play games?
What is your motherboard and what sound device are you using? It seems most people getting this error using XP is working with audio or games.
i used to get this! i reformatted and it went away, maybe you should too.

kmixer sounds unusally kz like. try running adawre and some virus scans. see what they pick up :)
I's assue that error is from the file not being there or a virus or somthing corrupting it:uhm:. Try a virus scan like they said and try reinstalling the game and XP(if you can). Don't trust me on this stuff though:lol:.

Abit nf7-s Nvidia nForce
Hmm did it ask u to tell microsoft about the problem if it does press yes and sometimes it tells u how to fic the problem. (make sure u update all ur stuff in win update). I never had this problem but i had one like it and updating my audio software solved it.
You should try updating your drivers from the ABIT drivers download page. I checked the download "NF7-S nForce Chipset Driver for Windows 2000/XP" for size, 15mb. The audio drivers are probably included in that download.
Usually Windows Update includes driver updates.
Do you have winamp installed on your computer? I know of a patch for Windows 2000, maybe you can find an XP fix aswell.... http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=ecec89b5-a2f6-44e4-8b9d-62da64ec9689&DisplayLang=en
