maybe the last bit didn't fit on the browser window?
I knew I should have resized the damn window....damn, damn, damn

and guys, take it easy on poser.... yeesh i know he went on a rant but still some people arn as INTO Finding drivers and such, thats only if there really audiophiles this thread seems to be moar mean then most :'(
Thanks zb....but its cool. I'm a big boy now...I even make potty all on my own. I think a little ribbing is good fun...it fires up the axons and pops the synapses...

...also, I am a driver fiend....I just didnt even realize I had installed the X-fi (yes that does make me stooopidz). I try just about every mod and repackage I can lay my clock cycles on...if only to shut down the whole neighborhoods power grid

Fear not...for OCing has become more than a hobby to me...it is an obsession. Just yesterday, I tweaked the front side curls of my daughter to increase aerodynamic throughput and reduce relational friction to drop overall heat output. I shaved about .2652 ms off her SuperPee time. i hope to hit sub 13s soon.

But on the real, the more I read....the more I learn....the more I tweak...the more #$%^ I $%^# up.

Thats half the fun.

And for the record...creative drivers are pooh-pooh nah nah (IMAMSOCIDO = in my and my super overclocked infant daughters opinions)

....and yes I just learned how to use the mulit-quote button....and I in fact will continue to use it superfuously until it bores me!
and finally...I quoted myself for no particular reason...other than that I can.

.....I WIN!!!!

[belligerent angry tirade] alright, so my story begins with an overclock mishap...of course. I was curious to see just how fast I could push my RAM before they would spontaneously combust, remotely launch an ICBM and/or animate kelly LeBrock. Well of course before I could achieve any of my lofty goals I corrupted my Boot Sector and torched my RAID array.

So no biggy...as all is fair in love and war, I'd just grab my image and restore my rig presto shabam. Except of course I didn't create an image...sweet (mental note a. why exactly do I have acronis then!?!?!) (mental note b. I suck at life). Since this was my new build (sig rig)...not my main computing rig (yet) a fresh Install of Vista x64 was really more of an inconvenience than an ordeal...besides, now I can have a clean image.

Orrrr so I thought...

this is when the fun began...and by fun, I mean pulling out my toenails with a pair of channel locks fun.

The install went like a breeze. Right up until I tried to hop on the net. Then everything just when f'in chernobyl on me. I started suffering all sorts of connectivity issues...that I hadn't had before. So I tried a fresh install...and another...and another...and another...and so on. Finally I was ready to douse the rig and myself in ethanol and smoke a marlboro red. (The surgeon general suggests that smoking makes you sexier to the opposite sex....just kidding, dont get all activist on me)

I read every vista networking article imaginable...toyed with my router, turned off SPI, tweaked IP configs, messed with checksum offloads....you name it I tried it...TWICE. No luck. Then to make matters worse, my rig started acting like a geriatric sprinter wearing cement flats and running uphill carrying an old 286 tower, UPS and small generator. In other words sloooooooow.

Off course, I used process explorer to see what the frizzle was going on. Lo and behold my DPC activity was higher than dave chappelle at a cypress hill show. Now most of us know (whether we want to or not) that Deferred Procedure Calls are a means of queing hardware interrupts.

Alright...now at least I was getting somewhere...I still wanted to punch an elf in the face, but progress was being made...sorta. I at least could make the assumption that I had a corrupt driver...or piece of hardware. So naturally I updated and rolled backed, recoded (not really) all of my network drivers (yukon and nforce adapters). No Dice. Now I was worrying I had bad geforce drivers or worse yet toasted my GTS. So I booted into safe-mode with networking...and BAM no DPC activitiy (abnormal that is) and seamless connectivity. CRAP...maybe it was my GTS, so I uninstalled it in the OS and physically removed and replaced with one of my 7600gt's. Booted normally..and everything was still CRAPOLA!.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHH. So it wasnt my Graphics Card, it wasnt my network adapters, wasnt my raid or SATA drive(r)s. At this point, I was tempted to turn to watercooling my rig....in the damned bath tub! I took a deep breath and tried to figure what, if any, differences there were between my stable arse kicking rig of delights and the *****box I was booting now.

Nothing...not a darn thing came to mind. I started poking around the innards of my PC like a little kid with a stick and roadkill.

THEN.....


MY FRIGGIN...xtremegamer card! I hadn't previously installed it since all I heard was horror stories about the driver support for Vista. It had sat in the box....right up untill I unplugged my IDE Caviar to prevent Vista from installing Bootloader on it. I figured what the hell....might as well try it out. This card, and its shoddy drivers (which were probably written on a friggin etch-a-sketch and programmed in a TI -86 graphing calculator) had brought my whole system to screatching halt and me to a fetal position sucking my thumb and contemplating ubuntu.

Now yes...I should have saved myself days of frustration by not being a blithering idiot and simply looking at my rig. But thats not the case...so f that.

Anyway in summation:

Creative blows!

[/belligerent angry tirade]

Summation: You have Creative hardware, and the drivers suck.

Now I want 3 minutes of my life back.

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!
I would compare that to the way DFI "used" to be....

They had the best product...but if you didn't go to DFI-street you would never know how to set it up.

Yeah seriously. I kinda wish that DFIstreet was somewhere in the manual. I didn't know it existed until I owned the board for like 2 months.

Although I have not had many problems with Creative, Logitech, or DFI. Okay I lied, I've had a tiny bit of frustration with the XP x64 X-Fi drivers (lot of X's) but I figured it all out.

In all honesty, who has actually not had any problems with new hardware or software? Anybody???

Oh and we all have a special brand we hate. Sony is the devil

I too have a thing for DFI. I fell in love with my Lanparty. Then dumped my girlfriend.
