XP Bluescreens - Minidumps

This is for a Windows XP SP2 computer with an EVGA 780i, two 8800GTs, and an Auzentech Prelude.

System is getting blue screens of death opening certain programs, typically related to audio.  Suspect a problem with the sound card but it also did it with the onboard sound, so now I'm confused.

I hope something can be gained from analysis of the minidumps:

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
