Try a different PCI device to see if the slots are bad.

Hey guys, thanks for the advice.

nightmare, I also considered a BIOS option that disabled PCI slots somehow but I couldn't find one in the BIOS so I can probably throw that out. So its either a bad card or a bad mobo like you said.

Fishie36, I would try another PCI device but I dont have one so I'm in this crappy situation, lol. Well, I emailed Creative tech support and when they get back to me and it doesn't help (I'm already assuming it won't), I'm just gonna RMA the card and maybe buy a cheap PCI modem to test my slots with.

at a local store, i can get a pci sound card for about $5. Good tester card.

I personally believe that every computer savy guy should have one of each working cards for trouble shooting equipment.. maybe an OLD AGP vid card, and an old pci card or so on....

If anything, head over to like Fry's or Best buy and get a card to test, then just return it and tell em you dont want it.

Trust me, without troubleshooting the issue, you DONT want start RMA'ing the equipment because you dont really know WHAT to RMA.

Good Luck

Hi dude, when u boot your pc, there's a table with all system specs (cpu, hd, memory, etc...) and below there's more information (plug pci devices and others), can u see any multimedia audio device? (make sure that your onboard sound is disable). If u cant see any multimedia audio device i think your x-fi could be bad.
