HD Desktop crashing computer?

Recommended Posts

My computer is about 3 weeks old. Windows 8.1, Intel i5, 8 gigs ram. It's been flawless until I introduced the Bean recently (was using a Boss BR800 interface). All signs point to the Pod, I have had 8 BSODs. The Pod is up to date with drivers etc. AFAIK everything is. From googling, I see that this has happened to others. Any advice/fixes? I could always just use the analog outs and put them into the Boss, but I don't really want to go that route. THanks...

Thanks. How do I go about checking this? Is it simply a matter of turning the antivirus off and seeing if it happens again?

What kind of crash is happening?

Can you reproduce the crash?

If so, what is the recipe?

The last when was Bad Pool Header (I think) with mfefirek.sys, which I assume points to Mcafee. I've disabled it and I'll see if it continues/

if you have a very new computer. keep your eye out for updated bios and/or chipset drivers...Windows 8.1 has had some problems with USB interfaces...

 

If you have a laptop, you might need to tweak your power management...This link "could" apply as I know that Line 6 is using streaming modes for the audio...Good Luck..

Thanks for the responses. I disabled McAfee and haven't had a crash since. I'll come back to this thread in a day or so in case anyone is using the search, but right now it appears to be working well.
