I know you said you tried everything, just want to make sure.<br />
<br />
If you have done the following:<br />
• Uninstalled everything and deleted it from the Device Manager then reinstalled it all.<br />
• Unplugged the card and reseated it.<br />
• Unplugged the card and installed it into a different PCI slot.<br />
...Then it sounds like the card itself has died.<br />
<br />
Sorry for your loss, may it rest in peace. <Sounds of bagpipes playing.>

Go into the device manager and uninstall the sound device then use driver cleaner and finally after a restart reinstall the drivers<br />
<br />
Oh and make sure onboard sound is disabled in the bios

Have you restarted your computer yet? I'v had it happen where a for some reason windows just stops the drivers or the card from actually working. One quick restart and i was good to go

Uninstall all Creative Drivers from your system and then do the following but instead of Graphics drivers select Creative on the pop down menu : <br />
<br />
Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below. <br />
<br />
1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:<br />
<a href="http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html" target="_blank">http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html</a><br />
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers. <br />
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''<br />
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure ) <br />
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them. <br />
<br />
Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay. <br />
<br />
If you still get a problem as said go to device manager and uninstall the device and restart Windows.
