creative x-fi titanium 7.1 sound card problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently bought the creative x-fi titanium 7.1 sound card but every time the drivers are installed, i just get looping sounds the speaker test (eg front left) does not work, comes up with failed to play test tone or the icon that audio is coming out of that speaker stays on and the program crashes, media player wont play or comes up with an error. after a while i will just loose audio completely.
how ever if i uninstalled creative drivers(iv tryed 4 differant drivers) and software. windows will install the card automaticly and it will be callled HD audio Device and it will work but just with none of the features from creative.
(kinda like have a ferrari that can only do 30mph )

Things Iv tryed
I put the card in another computer (with windows 7) installed it same faults from above.

iv restarted the windows audio service in services
(start>all programs>administrative tools>services and navigate to "windows audio) still same

Iv dissabled all effects (eg eax, creative crystallization)stilll the same

Iv tryed athe registry trick i found on some web site
(Goto the following key in registry.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Ã* SOFTWARE Ã* Microsoft Ã* Windows Ã*
CurrentVersion Ã* MMDevices Ã* Audio Ã* Render Ã*
{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} Ã* FxProperties

In the right hand side of the registry window change the value of {1da5d803-d492-4edd-8c23-e0c0ffee7f0e},5
(value type is REG_DWORD) to 1 (one) instead of 0 (zero).

INCASE YOU DON'T FIND THE ABOVE MENTIONED KEY UNDER fxproperties, PLEASE CREATE IT BY YOURSELF. (COPY & PASTE

{1da5d803-d492-4edd-8c23-e0c0ffee7f0e},5

TYPE IS REG_DWORD AND PUT VALUE 1

The audio start working at the moment you change the above value !!! (even before closing the registry editor) still does not work


i have formatted my pc run all the vista updates then started with the oldest drive i could find for the card and worked my way up to the newest

iv uninstalled all drivers, software, manually deleted all trace of it cleaned it out of my registry reinstalled still did not work

iv sent the guys i got it from an email and could get a replacment if the card does not work but if it does i have to pay them £10 + postage n packaging.
just thinking if windows can install it as a hd device and it works but when i installed creative drivers it does not, weather its a driver fault or weather theres a chip on the card for the X-fi creative crystallization thats damaged and why the card wont work with the correct driver, any other thing else i could try would be appreciated
