Well poeple newbie here, ain't sure if I should post this question innere or in bug repports so I'm postin' it in 'ere.

Here goes:

I've recently aquired Uplink(Cool game) And my problem is as follows:

When I play Uplink it sometimes crashes to a blue screen and my system goes down. I get the message:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I've deducted that it is my soundcard that is giving me beef since the driver throwing the crash is sbpci.sys.

My sys. specs:

Windows 2k service pack 2 (SP3 haven't been released in a danish version yet)
Soundblaster 128PCI with what I assume is the newest drivers, I can't find anydates on Creatives homepage.

That error has to do with trying to access memory at an invalid location.  This generally has to do with a bad device driver, though not always.  I would try getting the latest drivers for your sound card, just get which ever one has the highest version number, and install it.  It can also be caused by Anti-virus software, so you may try disabling any anti-virus software you are running while playing.  The System Log in Event Viewer might have a more detailed explanation of the problem which might help.  Good luck.  :)

Sorry for double posting, well it's definatly a problem with something trying to access the wrong memory, look at the addy that is being dumped on me:

0x000000d1 (0xfa035002, 0x00000010, 0x00000000, 0xbfd79f2e).

Makes no sense to me that anything would want to access anything at 0x00000000

That adress is generally given off when there are problems with USB at shutdown.  0x000000d1 errors can be caused by RAID drivers, email syncrinisation, modems, or device drivers.  Also when that comes up in games it is generally because of ATI Radeon video cards.  New drivers generally solve that.  If new drivers don't work try restoring Windows settings to the Last Know Good configuration.  :)

That much I figgured, as I said in the first post: It was sbpci.sys causing the error, so it's the device driver for my soundblaster card, how to fix?

If it is the Soundblaster driver get the latest driver here.  Award video drivers are also named sbpci.sys so it could be that too, but probably not.  I would try getting the lastest drivers for your video card aswell, as sometimes the Soundblaster has conflicts with video cards.  New drivers generally work wonders.  :)
