If you haven't yet start with uninstalling and re-installing the driver.

I would say also try with an updated driver,

Rocketfish - Rocketfishâ„¢ 5.1-Channel PCI Sound Card

If that doesn't work you can also try the reference Creative driver,

Creative Worldwide Support > X-Fi Xtreme Audio

as that Rocketfish card is nothing more than a re-named version of the X-Fi Xtreme Audio. May not work though if the DevID for your card isn't in the INF, and if it isn't it can be added manually which should get it installed.

How can I add it manually? I have low audio again Sometimes my audio is fine and sometimes my audio is low like now. I'm not even sure if the drivers install properly because I can't launch the software that comes with it

Hey all. I'm looking for a new audio card that can run a true 5.1 surround sound setup. I have the Logitech X-540 5.1 surround sound speakers.
