I wouldn't take no notice of an advisor with a spelling problem.

Hi nekrosoft13,
Thank you but I already have that driver installed. That's the one that the advisor says is the problem and I've been having problems in Vista 64 to with that driver.

I use these drivers. Creative is very very slow at releasing drivers. Thankfully there is someone who release the Auzen drivers for use with most X-Fi cards. These use Creative Labs 2.20.0002.10 driver dated 11/05/09. Much newer than what's on their support page.
