Text size [-] [+]

On some systems running the OEM (factory) installation of the Windows Operating System may result in instability, blue screen's, and system crashes with their M-Audio device.  To ensure stable operation when using a computer for digital audio recording, a clean installation of the Operating System is recommended; as well as installing the latest drivers for all system devices (Motherboard, BIOS, chipset, etc).  Before reinstalling your Operating System contact your computer manufacturer to ensure this does not void your warranty.  For assistance with re-installing your Operating System contact your computer manufacturer's tech support.
