Windows 7: Creative Sound Card Problem Thread

XP service pack 3 & Windows 7068 64-Bit
 
 

Im running a Creative XFI sound blaster inbuilt on my MSI P6N diamond mobo, and it tends to recognise that my audio jacks are there and on volume control it shows that its playing sound however it normally takes about 5 mins after start up before the sound comes out of my speakers, at first i tried disabling the other audio jacks (front headphone and digital/optical outout) and that worked fine, but now it has gone back to like it was before...

any help please?

Have you tried downloading the latest drivers from their website? most of the time when you buy something they will only include the initial release (first release) driver for that product and there are usually updates by the time you buy the product from when it was packaged and the driver cd was created. if there is not any driver updates, try booting into safe mode (F8) whilst the system is proceeding in post startup and then locate the latest driver (either on your cd or where ever you may have downloaded the newer driver to) and try running it then.

my graphics drivers for some reason can only be installed in safe mode, if i try it normally i get the same error as you, bsod during install. though it never happened with beta 7000?

hope that helps.

[quote=thunder2008;28386]I thought about what would make it easier for creative to actually get around to fixing what is wrong with the drivers for not just my card but all of the brand manufacturers cards which are creative products.

And, to be able to have all of these Creative cards in a single format that will allow them to see which cards are still having an issue with Windows 7.
