Winamp 5.52 crashes -> igxpdx32.dll

Hi there,

short story incl. major problem:
1.
downloaded and installed winamp 5.52 bundle (german) yesterday evening
2.
every time i switch to "visualisation": system crashes -> blue screen -> error message "... igx.pdx.dll ..."
3.
never (NEVER!) happened with any other wiamp version before (!!!!!)
4.
no change in system configuration prior to installation!
5.
short survey: happens to some of my friends, too - and also only with the new 5.2.2 version
6.
so please don't tell me that "...my configuration is not ok...", "... You are too stupid to ...", "You have to set parameter x to y and a to z and have to download p to..."
7.
i know that winamp is free. but even from a free software i expect that my system does not crash if i try to use the enclosed features.
8.
after deinstalling 5.2.2 and switch back to win media player (such a shame! sad day) - everything works fine.
9.
after installing one of the older versions of winamp: same problem occured again!!!!!
10.
so now - i'm a bloody win media player user. Yuk!

WHAT HAS HAPPEND IN THE 5.22 VERSION?
-> IGXPDX32.DLL SEEMS TO BE AN INTEL VIDEO DRIVER...

Requested computer information:
System: Win XP prof SP2
Hardware: Intel Core 2 CPU, 2GB RAM

Seems, new version has a serious problem!

Kind regards

Information Required

We need to see your "List of Plugins", and probably also a dxdiag log.

Was this a clean install of 5.52, or did you install straight on top of an older version?

Which vis plugin is active? (Winamp -> Prefs -> Plugins -> Visualization -> highlighted)
Milkdrop 2.0d, AVS, Tiny Fullscreen, or some 3rd-party vis plugin?

If Milkdrop2, try switching to AVS. You'll possibly need to look for updated drivers for your onboard video chip if you want to use MD2.

If some 3rd-party vis plugin... remove it, or switch to one of the Nullsoft ones.

Not the OP, but I'm having the exact same problem.

Running v.5.54 on XP Media. It takes anywhere from 20 seconds to two minutes before the BSOD appears, telling me there seems to be a problem with igxpdx32.dll, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. I'm using MilkDrop2, no other third party visualizations, hasn't happened before.

I really want to be able to watch it without incident again, it makes iTunes look like crap to a greater extent.

1. Upgrade to Winamp 5.541

2. Switch to DirectSound Output to confirm whether or not
the problem is caused by your 3rd-party AudioBurst Output plugin

3. Look for updated onboard Intel graphics drivers from your pc or motherboard manufacturer
(BSoD's are invariably caused by bad/old drivers).
Though some people have said that using older drivers fixed their problem (not Winamp related): http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=162292

Does the problem happen when running Milkdrop2 in windowed mode, fullscreen mode, or both?

A screenshot of your settings might also help...
(Winamp -> Prefs -> Plugins -> Visualization -> Milkdrop 2.0e -> config -> Common Settings tab)

Just upgraded to 5.541, and tried it both with AudioBurst and DirectSound, with same results. Problem occurs in both windowed and fullscreen.

I'm running on a Dell Inspiron, my video card is Intel 945GM v.6.14.10.4814. I went to the Dell website and I'm running the most recent driver for XP. I'm going to try installing the next older driver in safe mode and see if that helps.

MilkDrop settings attached.

Does it still crash if you disable Pixel Shaders?

(Winamp -> Prefs -> Plugins -> Visualization -> Milkdrop2 -> config -> More Settings tab)

Downgraded driver didn't work.
Disabled pixel shaders didn't work.
And, incidentally, pulling my hair out doesn't work either.

Setting the mesh size kept it going longer (usually BSOD's within 2 minutes or less) but it looks terrible.

I've changed all settings to defaults, exceptions with frame rates for all modes and full screen resolution (1280x600 50Hz).

I'm going through that thread you mentioned earlier for anything I missed. Any other suggestions?

Update:

I tried the driver from the thread you suggested (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showpos...3&postcount=10) but its highest resolution was 1024x768. I run on 1440x900 and intend to keep it that way, although I could run MD on a smaller resolution.
Then I tried just removing igxpdx32 from the unzipped driver from Dell and continue installation, with dreadful results.

Several hours and cigarettes later, I'm still at bloody square one with the same driver and the same cursed dll file. All I can figure is that it's most likely a hardware problem I can't find an accommodating solution for, because any variance of settings produce the same BSOD 20-30 seconds after clicking the visualization tab (sometimes less).

Goddamn it all, I just wanted to watch my music...

I'm not sure what else to suggest...

Does AVS vis work?

According to that thread on majorgeeks, the older drivers don't even use igxpdx32.dll,
so you could use the older drivers and delete that file...?

igxpdx32.dll PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Having the same exact issue with BSOD when running milkdrop. I believe this may be a hardware issue but I believe at one point I was running Milkdrop without failure so this may also be the intel graphics driver issue. I have an onboard graphics card (igxpdx32.dll) which is glued to the motherboard. Not an actual card. Hopefully one of us will figure this out and get back with the solution.
