Hi all. I have a Soundblaster X-FI Fatal1ty FPS. I've tried as many drivers as I can remember, yet still I am plagued with popping, crackling, distortion and so on. I can stop it, but only if I turn the output down to 50% or less (making it very quiet) and lower the bass. As soon as I touch the EQ, bass, treble or anything else the cracking begins again, along with the popping and distortion. Can any one please tell me what causes this? it's happening through both my speakers and my headphones. Also, which particular driver should I be using? is there one that helps my problems? I'm about ready to give up, which is a real shame as I love the sound of the card.
