rofl poser!


no, I understand being frustrated and trying to troubleshoot... but I was just pointing out that you were complaining about a problem that has already been solved. I fully admitted that Creative doesn't have the best support. If they weren't so damn good (read: own the gaming market of computer audio) I would have moved on to a better, audiophile grade sound card long ago. But as it is they do make good products. Their community forums is a good place to look for information, and even though official creative people often don't have the correct answer, there is someone else on the forum that does.

I actually found your op quite amusing, and couldn't resist calling you an idiot. I still stand by my comment. call me intolerant if you want... but I'll have a smile on my face while you do so!

Ok....really though, last time:

YES....I WAS, CURRENTLY AM AND HOPE TO CONTINUE TO BE IN THE FUTURE...AN IDIOT
is everyone better now....

cause that was mighty cathartic for me.

However, my driver solution, was a completely repackaged effort that was a "creative" solution in name only. That to me, (IMO), is one of the very failings that we can both agree on...but obviously, I find it more disturbing than you do. Maybe not "brother and sister kissing" disturbing, but definitely "president-elect Richard Cheney" disturbing.

@brusslesprouts: x86...x86!!!!!! whoah brother, you are on the bleeding edge of technology. What's next, EGA monitors....<gasp>

(sorry I couldnt help myself)

creative, much like logitech - make AMAZING hardware, but are terrible at driver dev. I dunno why but Ive never had creative nor logitech drivers work right the first or even second time around. I always end up using modified or non-standard drvs after hours of yelling at the manufacturer drivers.

The PCI-e 6800GS also suffered this problem. When the GPU on the 6800GS got to 39-42c (idle) DPC's would spike and SLOWWWW the computer down. I had my rounds, I had 2 6800GS in SLI. I'm actually happy it wasen't Nvidia this time.

X-Fi was causing my Vista to crash. I reinstalled drivers and it works fine.
Once again...
