You'll want to try to isolate the issue to one specific component.
Try removing all cards from the chassis except the controller.
Try using the same setup in a different chassis.
Has this setup worked at some point in the past?
Any other cards in the chassis?
Yes this setup has worked in the past. I've tried other cards, and everything works just fine. I got ahold of another 5122 and tried it out. it does the same thing also.
it does the same thing also.
Do you mean that the other 5122 gives you a blue screen, or works properly?
If the other 5122 works properly, it is almost definitely the card that is malfunctioning.
Sorry I didnt' explain better, but both 5122's give me the blue screen. I dug out our old 8176 controller and 1002 chassis and put them in it. and they work fine in the that. Im kinda thinking it might be bad driver or corrupted files on the hard drive on the 8105 controller. any thoughts?
That's interesting that both 5122's cause that behavior. I agree that driver or software corruption seems most likely.
I would try repairing or force reinstalling your NI-SCOPE and NI-DAQmx drivers. That process can be found here: http://www.ni.com/product-documentation/54335/en/
Although it's unlikely that it is, you could verify it's not the chassis by using the old 8176 with the card and newer chassis - may be worth a shot.
Uninstalling and reinstalling all NI software or reimaging the computer would be possible other options, although hopefully it doesn't come to that.
