Question Sound card causing blue screen?

I have this soundblaster card - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Sound Cards
and I have noticed ever since I have installed it, I get the blue screen of death randomly when playing games (wow usually). Should I RMA the sound card? Any help guys? thanks always.

Can you switch your audio in wow from hardware to software?

I know in Lord of the Rings online, there is an attack that the loremaster class can use that will bluescreen anyone using a soundblaster card that has their audio set to hardware. Changing it to software fixes the problem.
