It's not OEM, and I installed SBXF_PCDRV_L11_2_30_0004, but want to try older driver.
I managed to delete driver completely, installed older, same problem.
What hardware issue can it be, and how to fix it?
If the hardware is faulty I doubt there would be a way to fix it. If you have re-installed the OS and drivers then I can't see how it can be a software issue. It could still be something else causing it, something else in the system with a fault.
At this point options are trying the card in someone else's system. Trying another card in yours. If you can finallly narrow it down to the card itself then there is probably a loose component or dry circuit. You can pick up an xtremeMusic on eBay for about £10 nowadays. That's how much I sold mine for.
I don't get how it works perfectly everywhere else, except games.
I hear a pop, like it turns it self off, and extremely quiet sound.
And also look for bad caps on the sound card if there bad cap you need new sound card then. Also check out for bad caps on mobo too.
I said you to reinstall to x86/32 bits if you can. Genuine key will still match. Remember about ram limit, you can pass that by fix.
I had the same when I played movies. Change from 5.1 to 4.1/2.1 was solution. That's why i helping you
Ya maybe he does has 4 gig of ram on 32bit lol he needs updated pc really badly.
Have 64-bit with 8GB, and I had my card working on this system, so it's probably caps, which I should be able to change.
There always issue with 32bit with 4gigs on pci cards.
I had 2gigs x64 when I had my problems, yes, x86 was fine.
Maybe with 4 GB x86 (after fix for ram limit) will otherwise work better if we got dead end after changing caps.
You got have 4gig for 64bit and 8gig for gaming.
I think the problem is overheating, and thats why it goes down in games, because heat inside the case goes up.
I'm currently testing, and I think I solved it.
Share with us if problem disapeared after cooling, or if it's only your hypothesis
It does, it's overheating, that causes it to shut down.
I turned a fan to blow on it, and it works perfectly in games.
BTW, which Xtreme Music do you have? The more expensive one that has a black PCB, 2 RAM chips, gold connectors, and a heatsink on the processing chip, or the cheaper "blue" PCB version that doesn't?
Golden, with heat-sink on DSP
