Foobar2000 BSOD Win7 64bit?
Hi my Win 7 64 bit blue screens when foobar has been left idle for some time.

You could upload the minidump if you want someone to take a look at possible cause, but you can rule out foobar2000 immediately. Only broken hardware or bugs in kernel level code (drivers) can cause BSODs. Check for updated BIOS and drivers, especially sound card drivers (unless you use Microsoft's native High Definition Audio drivers).

It's not really 'off-topic' is it? If anything it might help point others in the correct direction to check their sound drivers.

Audio Hardware is a bit of a stretch, but OK, whatever.

Are you sure that this happens only with Foobar2000?
If the soundcard is UAA compatible then you could try uninstalling the soundcard driver and all software related to the soundcard and let Windows install a generic driver for it like 'High Definition Audio Device'.

Also run memtest from to see if there is any problem with the memory.

The problem isn't Foobar, its PC hardware - possibly your PC's audio interface's power management. Time to update its driver.

As i systematically have the same problem and google led me here i'll raise the problem once again:

i have two pc

tablet samsung ativ pro 700t1c - windows8 64bit
and samsung r519 notebook, windows 7 64bit

eventually bsod occurs ONLY IF music is played through foobar AND pc's are connected via usb to Marantz sa11s3 in DAC mode. Audio properties do not matter - this happens on both mp3 and flac in 16/44 to 24/192.

Playback with Marantz on other media players doesn't cause bsod, as well as playback through foobar with default audio card, so it seems to me it is a software problem.

Its a driver problem with your PC.  Try updating your audio drivers.  Alternatively, you can also try changing the audio output mode in foobar to a different interface. This may also work around buggy drivers.
