    dont be offended my dear chap, but you've got to TRY the drivers.

    This issue has been causing you grief for a long time so surely a download it the way forward?

    Although I have previously tried using the latest drivers to resolve this issue, I will download those provided in the link on the previous page and see if these make a difference.

    I wont download the Vista CD, as I already have this (it came with my sound card).

    Re: Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty XtremeGamer and Creative Labs GigaWorks S750 Speakers

    Anyhow, I downloaded those drivers and they do seem to have helped. I still have the same problem though, it just happens at a greater volume. I have read elsewhere that people with the same speakers and soundcard as me (using XP) do not have the same problems as I do (using Vista).

    This is a shame, wonder if it would help if someone could enable us to install the latest drivers (provided this month) for Windows XP (Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty XtremeGamer) using Vista.

    I have no suggestions, still looking for some (although it would be nice to install XP on a seperate partition that is not an option).

    Bad sound is one of Vista's features.

    Do you really think I need to be reading that?

    Reverting back to XP is not an option, your comment was not at all useful as it seems as though this is just an excuse to rant about how bad Windows Vista is. It doesn't help me to resolve this issue.

    Interesting - and useful to those using music systems professionally. I wonder if the Vista service pack will improve things? Or if a higher priority for the music processes would help? But I guuess for the moment, if you are processing sound for pro applications - stick to XP!

    I do not rant. I give you information. Judging by time taken by yourself to download latest drivers it seems you have trouble processing information though. You do not blame me for this. And you do not call my short posts rants.

    Re: Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty XtremeGamer and Creative Labs GigaWorks S750 Speakers

    I always like to component swap when these things happen. It is perfectly possible that you could have a defective component and drivers will never solve your issue. I had to return a set of Creative speakers in the past. I believe your speakers have an amp, and it could be an issue with that.

    If you are not prepared to move the speakers to another computer. Try moving another computer to the speakers. Even a laptop with headphone out will be a useful test.

    Worked fine on a laptop, couldn't get them as loud as the laptop detected them as headphones so there were no configuration options.

    I'd like to see you send a nasty virus through a hardware firewall or two that the University have set up. Fry my dormitory hard drive assets? Get real, stop wasting my time. The only tick you leave me with is the one which makes me want to bash you over the head !

    Re: Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty XtremeGamer and Creative Labs GigaWorks S750 Speakers

    Well, that is good in that the speakers and amp don't seem to be duff.

    I wonder if you are overloading the output from your PC. With your speakers having an amp already built into them, you would normally use a lineout feed into them. That is, the outputted signal from your PC should be quite low.

    Amping your output signal, and then amping again with your speaker's amp can cause issues. You do have dedicated connections for your speaker/card combo so most of that should be taken care of already anyway. It may be worth having a think to see if you are over boosting your signal in some way. An example would be using a graphic equalizer in some software with settings above the centre line, audio codecs that have in bulit boosting etc etc.

    I have a HDA Mystique, and output using coax SPDIF. In my sound card I have the output level (master) at only 75%. If its higher than that it can cause issue should I use graphic equalisers or volume normalisers in other software.

    Might be worth a shot, fingers crossed
