    When you play back an audio file on a Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012-based computer that contains a high definition audio (HDAudio) device, the system may crash.

    This issue occurs because of a race condition when starting the HDAudio device.

    To resolve this issue, install Microsoft support files from the Microsoft Download Center, or install the hotfix that is described in this article.
