Well the sound engine in this game is really crappy and unstable, so my guess is that your external sound card as something to do whit the problem.
Excluding the sound card, i would say driver conflicts, OS going berserk or Overheating problems, thats the top 3 i check for problems when something goes wrong.
Is that sound card your only sound option ? if no can you play without it and see if it crashes ?
I know GTX conflicting GW2 is a known issue but noone has a problem as major as I do. I doubt it's OS and Overheating would cause it to go black and restart, it does neither + I checked with speedfan and temperature is fine.
I have internal sound card and I'll test it out. I hope it's not, because the external is better by a longshot.
EDIT: I ran "Who crashed" and it spew out this. Sounds like a driver issue but can't put my finger on what the heck is "ntoskrnl.exe". I'll do more google research on that.

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x71F00)

Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.
