Hi all. I purchased a second-hand Creative X-fi Xtreme Gamer PCI sound card that uses the OEM "SB0770" chip. I did a thorough removal of my dreaful VIA onoard sound chip drivers, including manaually searching through the entire Windows registry. I then rebooted and disabled the VIA chip from the BIOS until finally placing my new sound card in a free PCI slot. Windows recognized the new sound card and after cancelling Windows automatic driver installation, I installed the official "SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0015" downloaded from Creatives official website. This particular package installed just fine, and I was happy with the new, improved sound in my games music and movies. Then this morning upon turning on my PC I recieved a messege when I tried to launch the Creative Console that said something like "No Sound...the current audio device is not supported by the application" ...i tried rebooting twice but that didn't help. I checked Device Manager and there were no problems whatsoever with the Sound Card. I then decided to reinstall the drivers and that finally worked. So my question is, why did this happen? I didn't do anything with my PC the last night that could of caused this.. it was just completely random. WHy?? And also just which PAX suite should I use for this card? I am completely lost at the layout of this forum. My specs are.... Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer (USING THE SB0770 OEM CHIP!!) Windows 7 64-bit Thanks all!
