I have recently got this problem, basically when i shut down or close a game down i sometimes get a black screen and i have to turn my laptop off. WHen i restart it windowssays that i have recovered from aserious error and it says:

"Problem caused by your audio software

Although we have not determined the specific cause of this problem, we know the general cause of the problem was your audio software."

I have Windows XP
