Default Re: Random Crashes (long explanation)

So after installing the new driver the PC still crashed. I checked my video card clocks for my 7800GT and it was 450/1050, I dropped it to 400/900. Since then, I've received all these different BSOD's in this order:

Something on "kmixer.sys" (0x000000FC)

The last two make me think RAM. I have them locked at 4-4-4-12 so I'll free them up to 5-5-5-15 and see if that changes anything. Any other ideas besides that?


Now I'm just confused. I still crashed, and now all I get is the IRQL error. So, I loaded the fail-safe defaults for my BIOS (I know my CPU isn't overheating, it barely goes above 40 Celsius on load in games) and it still crashed. Now I'm running Memtest86 to see if it's the RAM and so far, at only 30%, there are no errors.

I believe IRQL can include the video card, but I don't see how it can be messed up yet work. What I mean is its perfectly fine displaying video for the Memtest, for the BIOS, and Windows and WoW. It just tends to crash during WoW more than anything else.
