Weird audio problem

Hi
I am running Windows 7 7600.16385.090713-1255_x64

I have a Creative X-FI X-Treme Music soundcard with Creatives beta Windows 7 driver installed.

The problem just started today. I am listening to music and after a while the audio went strange. It seemed to fade and I could not hear the voices in it only the guitar and drums which also went quiter a bit.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this?

Thanks

Try the Vista x64 driver and see if that makes a difference.

Hi
It turned out that the speakers were not connected properly. They just needed pushed in further and it worked fine.

I'm running 32 bit Win 7.

It's a really weird problem. I've got sound fading in and fading out on some files. Some Youtube videos just pay a really quiet bassline.

The thing is windows sounds play fine over the top of this so it can't be a speaker problem.

I've got a Creative X-Fi Xtreme card.

Guess I'll just try another driver.

OK I worked it out

Apparently the Creative Control panel works out what speakers you're using. It incorrectly guessed I was using 7.1 speakers.

I changed it to headphone settings and it worked a charm
