Default Computer locking up with Vent and WoW

I'm getting recurring incidents where I will be running WoW and Ventrilo at the same time, and my computer will suddenly lock up. Sometimes it will come out of the lock-up and run normally again, and sometimes it requires a hard reboot. I believe that it occurs most often when someone in the vent channel with me queues up their mic to speak. I have uninstalled and re-installed Ventrilo. What other information would you like me to post? Thanks ahead of time!

[FONT=Verdana]Check the Audio driver to make sure it is up to date. Or try re-installing the current driver.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana](note: some USB Headsets do not require a driver)[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana](Don’t assume the driver is up to date as a newer one may have been released since the computer was built)[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]- If you have a brand-name PC, like Dell or HP, then check the manufacturers website for driver updates.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- If you built the PC and use the on-board sound device then check the motherboard manufacturers website for drivers for your model motherboard.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- If you use a plug-in soundcard, like SoundBlaster, then check that manufacturers website for drivers.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Also check for BIOS and chipset updates[/FONT]
