Preferred Solution: CREATIVE XTREME MUSIC error CODE 12

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Started having the exact same problem as of today. I plugged out my headphones from my X-Fi xtrememusic to connect speakers. Later as i connected my headphones again they didnt work. I restarted and since then been having the CODE 12 error. I have reinstalled the drivers about 3 times and tried different pci slots. this sucks really bad cause onboard sound is crap

i have recently purchased and installed a new Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Music sound card but i noticed before i put it into my computer that the card had plugs on is a AUX plug but the other looks like a connector for a power lead (like the one you connect to a floppy disc drive) does anyone know what this plug is for?

A:Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Music help

Is THIS it?
Unless there happens to be a front panel attatchment, like the audigy, I'm not aware of any powered SC's, there maybe something to it.
How is it working?

Bit confused as ive read that when u use the SPDIF output on soundcards they will not process the audio but act as a through put. If your watching a dvd in 7.1 sound then thats fine by me, but if i'm playing music in mp3 connected to a stereo using the spdif cable just for stereo sound output, will the card process the sound so i can use effects like the new Crystalizer to improve mp3 sounds ?

Great card from what ive read but why they never included connectors for front pc case audio jacks is just an oversight, albeit an intentional 1 to make people by the breakout box.

Bought this card today. Because it said support for vista, I thought it would work in Windows 7 as well.

Installed the card and I had immediately sound. Then I went to the creative site to install the drivers because I had only control over the volume. There was no EAX, no bass control, nothing. After the installation of the drivers from creative: no sound. Nothing.

Then I deleted the card from computer management and installed other drivers (pax v3.50). Then I had really bad sound (very low, and it was absolutely not clean). In fact it was so low that even when everything on full (even speakers) it was softer then I'm used to at 25%.

I bought this card for the good audio (better then on-board). Now the audio and control over it (without the drivers) are exactly the same as the on-board.

Not surprised in the least that that happened. It is admirable that the guy that made them is trying to help, but everything he adds to the INF is nothing more than hopes and wishes (he even adds registry entries to stop BSOD's to the INF; as if it was that easy to stop those).

That said the guy that modded this set,

I downloaded the Beta driver from Creative Labs for my X-Fi Xtreme Audio and have had only one problem with it. It does not recognize my CD drive. I have noticed that some default settings are set at mute and I've had to change those and the volume control is set pretty low. I went to the speaker control icon on the system tray and clicked on mixe3r to bring up the menu box to make my changes. I've also notified Creative Labs of the problem with the cd drive. Don't if this helps, just thought I would let you know of my experience with this.

Hello, my Windows 7 x64 (7100) found after a clean install new optional updates which included drivers for my soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio. I also used the drivers I got with the cd and installed them on my system. Everything is working now except a few options. I get sound in 5.1, but when I select options like X-Fi Crystallizer, X-Fi CMSS-3D or just change the volume bars (FL, FR, RL, etc) nothing happens!

Before I installed Windows7 x64 I was using Windows XP Pro x86 without any problems. When using the above mentioned options they did changed the sound.
Is it possible that I've to download drivers by my self instead of the Windows updates one?
Does somebody know what I'm doing wrong?


A:Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio x64

I was having the exact same problem so I posted it on the MSI forums (I got mine with an Eclipse SLI) and it turns out that creative recently released a beta windows 7 driver. I downloaded it and installed it and now everything is working great.

Had a Creative problem XFI Xtreme hard time getting my sound card to work properly when I installed it years ago but finally managed and it was working just fine Yesterday I needed the microphone and found out it wasn't working when plugged into my soundcard I enabled High definition Creative XFI Xtreme problem audio device and plugged the mic in the front of comp and it worked fine so I saw it wasn't the mic who had the problem I was then told to update my drivers and that might fix the problem with the mic which I did but now nothing works anymore The mic doesn't work which at this point I don't care at all about but most important the audio console gives me the message quot current selected audio device is not supported by the application do you want to select another audio device quot and I also get the very same message if I go to sounds---playback devices---properties---sound blaster---configure your audio settings So I can't access Bass Boost Bass Management EAX EQ and the rest My sound is tinny and has no punch or volume I tried to roll back the driver checked on other drivers did a system restore same I then realized I should disable High Definition audio device which I did same Then when I could't sleep last night I thought maybe I should go in the Bios and disable it there even if it says it's disabled in system devices Sure enough it was still enabled so I disabled it and said to myself NOW it's going to work again But no Anybody have any ideas please before I spend another sleepless night

A:Creative XFI Xtreme problem

You didn't fill in the "My System Specs" which helps.

But, if you are not using the integrated audio (on the motherboard) it should be disabled in the BIOS. It can cause conflicts with an added sound card.

Since you have it disabled in the BIOS, go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. Click the Recording Tab and the "What You Hear" should be set as the default playback device. RIGHT click the microphone and if disabled, enable it. In the Playback panel, your "Speakers" should be set as the default playback device.

If all of this looks OK, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the Xfi then LEFT click "Uninstall" - DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and the sound card will be detected and reinstalled. If there were some corruptions between Windows and the sound card this will fix it (and there could be since you had the Integrated Audio enabled).

so i just got this new sound card. i installed it and disabled the integrated hd sound in the bios. my computer says the sound is working on the icon on the bottom left but the sound isn't actually playing on my speakers. please help

A:creative xtreme gamer problems

did you replug your cables? (unplug em from your motherboard's audio jacks and plugged em into your soundcard's audio jacks)

if you are using a frontpannel I/O module, did you remember to rewire the (internal) cables from your motherboard's connector(s) onto your soundcard's connectors?

Disabling your HD sound in bios doesn't necessary make it so your soundcard will work.
Check windows device manager and see what shows up there.
If you disabled your integrated HD sound in bios it should not show up in that list anymore. Check if your soundcard shows up and wether it shows as enabled/installed etc.

Did you install the drivers from the cd?

Hello. I'm running Windows 7 build 7600, and seem to have a sound card driver issue. Sound is successfully comming out, but it is screwed up, it fades in and out and has terrible quality (driver from clean install). I am using this sound card, have looked around the forum and have come across a post leading to this driver, unfortunately the download link is no longer working, and was posted several months ago, so maybe there is a newer driver available. Can anyone provide me with a link to the latest up-to-date driver for this sound card please?

since that beta driver isn't available have you tried creative's site for a vista driver. the vista driver can be installed in compatibility mode.

your current driver may not be compatible with your system as it says ctaud2k.sys is not digitally signed.

go back to your hardware's manufacturer website & download the driver compatible

when you download the driver,be specific with the model of your sound

I want to upgrade my soundcard Creative SB X-FI Xtreme Gamer and i don't if it's worth.
For now i use my headphones Sennheiser 429 HD + Logitech 5.1 x530 but soon i'll have Behringer MS40 instead Logitech 5.1 x530
What would you advice me ? Should i go for Asus Xonar ? Should i go again for some better Creative soundcard ?
I do hear music as well, gaming and movies.
Any ideas / suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance

A:Creative SB X-FI Xtreme Gamer / upgrade

Upgrading and whether its worth it is very subjective. Depends on your specific case and if you think you need it.

I have a recording studio (using Sonar X2) and very attuned to sound and use high end studio monitors, but for my own PC use the RealTek built in sound card is acceptable to me.

The Xonar's are popular. There is another sound card company that uses the same chip as the Asus, HT Omega, you may want to check them out. I used one of their cards in an older PC, to replace a SoundBlaster and was very happy with it. HT Omega - The Next Generation in Audio.

Ok, so I read the stickied topic about the X-Fi Xtreme Audio driver, as I think this maybe a part of my computers less-than stable condition after recent Fresh Installs of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I got 2 things...

1) When I install Drivers off my CD, I get a SpiRunE.dll error about a module isn't there/cannot load. But the installation completes and I restart PC and it loads up the Creative Register/Update program.

2) website is down. Does anyone have a Mirror site available for this driver or the Daniel K's? Is this compatible with Win 7 H.P. 64bit?

I recently installed Windows 7 on my computer and downloaded the new .90 driver for my "Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio" PCI. I can't seem to switch between the recording device "Microphone"(front Jack) and "Line-In"(Back).

Also I tried downloading the driver package that includes the "Creative audio console" but the installer for that says that it cannot find the driver specified. I really would like the Console back, it made switching audio devices and sound setups much easier. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Greetings all,

My P35 Nero mother board has onboard Realtek? AL888 HD audio. I also have installed a Creative Xi-Fi Xtreme audio card.

The audio card will NOT allow me to record "what I hear". Is there a way to switch back and forth? Namely, to use the audio card for music, movies, etc. and then when I want to record "what I hear" to switch to the onboard AL888?

Thanks for your input.

Hoi Hoi Hoi folks

I got a Creative SoundBlaster Xtreme gamer a couple o' days ago. I have serious problems with drivers in vista.

This is a short of what happened (I'm running dual boot):
1. Installed drivers in XP, updated and did everything. Sound is good.
2. Installed drivers in Vista, sound was good.
3. Updated vista drivers and restarted.
4. Sound went Cabom (just as it was before I changed settings in the console) and I can't access the different modes console, and most stuff is deactivated.

I've tried to uninstall everything, used several different drivers, done EVERYTHING, but it seems like there's always some crap left in there.

So what I really want to know is:
How do I get rid of EVERYTHING related to Creative and it's drivers?

Uninstall, then clean by using something like this: (haven't tried)

I've recently bought a creative SB x-fi xtreme audio, and no matter what update i do, I keep having delay problems( 0.5 to 1sec) when connecting my guitar through the mic/line entry.......

Any help would be much appreciated.....
Many thnks,

I have a computer based recording studio (Sonar).

Latency can be one issue. Also, if you had Integrated Audio before (e.g. RealTek, SigmaTel/IDT, etc) make sure you have that disabled in the BIOS so there are no conflicts.

Run the DPC Latency checker and see what it tells you. DPC Latency Checker

A:Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio plays no sound

If you have installed a separate sound card, the front panel headphone jack connection has to be moved from the motherboard to the separate sound card. If you didn't move the connection that is probably your problem.

Depending on the age of the PC and the BIOS, the on-board sound could be labeled "Legacy Audio" in the BIOS.

It is a little older than the current Creative driver, but it worked and sounded just fine on my Xtreme Music when I was using it back then. If you do decide to try it follow Daniel's advice for uninstalling (about half way down on page 5, SB X-Fi Series AuzenUAA Pack 1.5 (02/20/2010) - Page 5 - Creative Labs ),

Uninstall the driver by running the Setup.exe, selecting "Remove all shared files", then reboot.

Uninstall all apps, reboot.

Remove the Creative folders in "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)".

Remove the "Software\Creative Tech" and "Software\Wow6432Node\Creative Tech" registry trees inside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

Install the driver, reboot.

Install the apps.

The problem is you let Windows install the driver for it, and that is pretty much all you got as it doesn't install things like the volume panel. For that and the drivers you need to either visit the Creative download page for the card or use something like this,

that has the drivers and all the apps included (and can pick and choose which of the apps you want, no need to install all of them).

A:Realtek HD Audio/Creative Xtreme Soundcard No rear speakers.

There are some differences in audio between XP and Vista/Win7/Win8. Some audio functions are handled differently.

Not getting full surround sound can happen with some media.

It has nothing to do with having AMD or Intel CPU systems. Its back to the OS, from what I've seen over the years. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell Community forums and sound was a major complaint when Vista came out and users were upgrading from XP to Vista.

Many older Creative (SoundBlaster) hardware are not Win 7 compatible or not fully compatible. Read - vendors want to sell you new hardware.

I probably just ranted and didn't really answer your questions.

As an off subject comment. I see you list 2GB of RAM but have a 64 bit OS. That is self defeating as a 64 bit OS requires more basic memory than a 32 bit OS does and leaves less RAM for programs. The 64 bit doesn't really do anything for you since the main reason to have a 64 bit OS is the ability to address more than 4GB of RAM.

I only have a stereo setup at the min but my amp has an optical in. Dose the x-fi xtrememusic ouput optical through one of the stereo ports like a mini disc player connection ie would this cable i have already have from my old mini disc player be any good? heres a link
VIVANCO PHCT515 << UK >> AVLAND Vivanco PHCT515 Toslink to 3.5mm Minidisc Cable

It's optical kind of square shaped at one end like my amp connection is with a traditional stereo shaped jack at the other end which also carries the red optical light in the middle.
I was just about to buy this card for a good price i saw, but if it does not output optical without coax leads i don't think i'll bother with it seems abit silly not to include common types of connections that people use for the price of theses cards.

Hi folks,

I have tried to install Music Maker 17 several times now, but everytime i get this error message when the install is nearly complete:

"MAGIX Music Maker 17 Premium Download Version

And then the installation rolls back.

I have updated all (I think) the drivers for my computer and used various clean-up-programs, but I am still getting the same error.

So, maybe anyone her can help me?

This is a desktop PC with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit installed. I'm trying to repair with the disk it was installed with originally. The reason for attempting the repair is that the System File Checker says there are files that it could not repair when I ran it. I ran it originally because I couldn't install or uninstall anything. I would get an error: This application was unable to start correctly. With error message (0xC0000006)

Now trying to repair Windows 7 with the upgrade option I get:
Windows was unable to create a required installation folder. Please reconfigure your boot.wim to use the flag 9 settings for the first image and restart your installation. Error Code: 0x803002f

Any help greatly appreciated....

You may need to attempt SFC up to 3 times to repair damaged System Files. But first disinfect per Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7. If there is any problem go with the bootable scans in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start as the OS may be in the death grip of infection.

Then SFC may run better from the Win7 installation media or System Repair Disk Command Line: SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail then you can try the Repair Install after establishing a Clean Boot per Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

But you may be better off copying out your files to quarantine to follow these same steps for a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which compiles everything that works best in tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here.

I recently bought this combination (Creative Inspire 5.1 Digital 5500+Creative Audigy LS). I hear the front speakers and the subwoofer but back speakers are not detected even by the diagnostic. I tried everything from installing the latest driver to uninstalling the old sound card. The stereo sound is fine but I can never get the 5.1 surround sound even with DVDs. Could someone please suggest a solution??

A:Can't hear back speakers (Creative Inspire 5.1 Digital 5500+Creative Audigy LS)

Some Suggestions

Check your Audigy HQ settings to see if the speaker modes are in 2 Speaker or 5.1 surround. Or you can go to Control Panel -> Sounds (multimedia settings) -> Speaker Settings and try setting it to 5.1 surround. I have Sound Blaster Audigy and I didn't know how to activate the 5.1 at first and what I had to do was go to the Audigy HQ in the Creative Folder in the Start -> Programs menu and had to set it to 5.1 in the speaker settings. If all else fails, double check your connections at the back and see if you reversed any of it and what not. Hope this helps!

A:Solved: How to connect a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro to a Creative GigaWorks S750?

I've had a couple of Creative sound cards with the console. They have been the internal models, but I don't think the setup of the external console would be any different. I apologize if I am not correct with what follows since I don't have personal experience with your setup. However, the general arrangement is that your satellites plug into the subwoofer and the subwoofer connects to plugs on the back of the sound card (which is 7.1). And that's it. Speaker controls are done with a utility within Windows. The external console has a headphone jack with a volume control for that. All the other plugs and controls are for things other than your speakers. In fact for most individuals the console is not a necessary item.

Edit: I went to the Creative Web site and I found this line "Easy control of Sound Blaster X-Fi through the convenient, external break-out-box". So I guess it does more than the usual consoles. Hard to tell from the picture. Speaker setup should be the same.

Hello,Some third party programs can affect the Windows Update service. If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.), I recommend you temporarily disable or uninstall them and then try accessing Windows Update later. If the problem still happens, try the following steps:Rename the Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder================================================1. Close all the open windows. 2. Click "Start", click "All programs", and click "Accessories". 3. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator".4. In the "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type in "net stop WuAuServ" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Note: Please look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was successfully stopped before we try to rename the folder. However, if it fails, please let me know before performing any further steps and include any error messages you may have received when it failed.
5. Click "Start", in the "Start Search" box, type in "%windir%" (without the quotes) and press Enter.6. In the opened folder, look for the folder named "SoftwareDistribution".7. Right-click on the folder, select "Rename" and type "SDold" (without the quotes) to rename this folder.8. Still in "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type the command "net start WuAuServ" (without the quotes) in the opened window to restart the Windows Updates service. If you still cannot install updates, running system file checker and check if the problem is caused by the corrupted system files: System File Checker================1.  Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.   2.  Type the following command, and then press ENTER:  sfc  /scannow  The sfc  /scannow command scans all system files and will recover the corrupted ones.   3. Please restart the computer and recheck the original issue. In-place Upgrade============= 1. Insert the Windows 7 DVD in the computer's DVD drive. 2. Click Start and choose Computer.3. Please find the "setup.exe" file in the DVD-ROM and double click it.4. Click Install now. 5. When we are prompted to input the product key, please click Next without inputting any key. The setup wizard will prompt and ask if you agree to install Windows 7 without the key. Please choose to confirm.6. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the system files of Windows 7 Note: While performing the In-place Upgrade, the system will restart automatically (several times) to merge the files and programs. Please leave the computer alone and do not configure it until In-place Upgrade is completed. The system will start Windows 7 once it is upgraded. Thomas77

your hp box is not only engineered by hp (who tend to focus on low assembly costs) but is an oem build, thus severely limiting your options. a suggested next step would be to attempt to poke around in the bios setup utility and/or to try out a wider variety of cards/slot configurations. good luck.

I just installed a PCI Creative CT4750 card with audio and midi jacks into my computer, and now when I boot my PC I get the following error message " PCI/PNP Error! Resource Conflict- PCI in slot 1 Bus: 03, Device: 0A, Function:00 " . After I log onto Windows XP Professional, the hardware is successfully installed and I viewed device manager to check for any conflicts and there isn't any. When I try to listen to audio through the rear port of this device I'm not getting any sound even though the audio is enabled and is set to maximum. Can someone please help me solve this problem so I can get the audio working?

Thanks. The PC is an IBM ThinkCentre Intel Celeron D 2.80 Ghz , Windows XP Professional SP3.

A:Solved: Creative CT4750 PCI Error

Problem solved! I swapped the two devices around on the two PCI slots I have and I get no more error messages on boot as well as now the sound works. Thanks anyways.

I have fully removed the drivers from my system because I am not using my creative sound card anymore. when trying to remove the software that comes with it (the software is for effects like reverb) it gives me the error; Gyazo - b56b3ecbabd93ad08ed03eb384df44b8.png

also when my pc starts up it says error while loading SPIRunE.dll. I googled it and it had something to do with creative software. I have disabled anything related to creative in MSCONFIG as well Gyazo - 77203709b089b053d0c8ea013795de8a.png

I recently installed AVG on the family computer and ran a virus scan, which came up with a few problems. The biggest one was that the computer was infected with the XTreme RAT trojan. This has been removed, but looking at the capabilities a RAT gives I would like to see what damage has been done.

What do I need to be looking for in the Events Viewer for things like the Webcam being turned off and on, remote access, files being remotely accessed etc?

Do I need to take any further action to protect the computer in the future? I don't know how long it's been on there, my sons keep installing games and things from the internet despite me telling them not to, so I don't know where it's come from.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

I used to use an GeForce 6800 XTreme from XFX. It's PCI express and 512 DDR3 with SLI capability. However, after a bad electrical surge that ended up with me replacing most of the parts in my PC it doesn't seem to work anymore. When I put it on the motherboard its green light for power comes on and its fan spins, but when I try to hook it up to my monitor it doesn't seem to send anything. I'd really like to know if there's anything I can do for it, because I replaced with some gig ddr2 card that's nowhere near as good.

Ok, I have windows vista ultimate installed on my computer. My onboard sound is a failure, it does not work worth a penny. So i bought this cheap $20 card instead. Diamond Xtreme Sound 5.1 This is the card that I bought. If you read through the comments it states that there are some drivers that will work with vista instead of xinxp and win2000. If someone could help me figure out where to find the drivers, like the actual page, and then install them correctly, that would be awsome. If not I am only going to return the card. I really dont want to cause i had to pay for shipping, so please reply back soon. :DP.S.

A:5.1 Xtreme Sound Card

EDIT: I'm sorry, I saw Xtreme Sound in the title and assumed creative. I can't help you with that card (the Diamond), I never saw a good review on them so I wouldn't buy one. Good luck. read the rest of the post if you are thinking of buying a Creative Card though..........Four words: Write your own drivers.Nope, I'm not being a smart ass. Creative deliberately crippled their sound cards so they would not work correctly with Vista. In the words of VP for Corporate Communications Phil O'Shaughnessy to a regular poster on their forums, "Daniel K" who DID write drivers to make Creative cards work in a forum message that also threatened to sue "Daniel K": "By enabling our technology and IP to run on sound cards for which it was not originally offered or intended, you are in effect, stealing our goods," writes O'Shaughnessy at Creative's forums. He goes on fiurther in the message to state, "If we choose to develop and provide host-based processing features with certain sound cards and not others, that is a business decision that only we have the right to make."You can no longer read the original post made on Mar 08, 2008 at the creative forums because after a few days someone realized that Mr. O'Shaughnessy had basically admitted that Creative deliberately sabotaged their own products so they would not work in Vista and they removed it and replaced it with a nonsensical press release. However you can find the original message here among other places as it was a matter of public record and as such saved by many media outlets. The complete statement before being removed was as follows: Daniel_K: We are aware that you have been assisting owners of our Creative sound cards for some time now, by providing unofficial driver packages for Vista that deliver more of the original functionality that was found in the equivalent XP packages for those sound cards. In principle we don't have a problem with you helping users in this way, so long as they understand that any driver packages you supply are not supported by Creative. Where we do have a problem is when technology and IP owned by Creative or other companies that Creative has licensed from, are made to run on other products for which they are not intended.We took action to remove your thread because, like you, Creative and its technology partners think it is only fair to be compensated for goods and services. The difference in this case is that we own the rights to the materials that you are distributing. By enabling our technology and IP to run on sound cards for which it was not originally offered or intended, you are in effect, stealing our goods. When you solicit donations for providing packages like this, you are profiting from something that you do not own. If we choose to develop and provide host-based processing features with certain sound cards and not others, that is a business decision that only we have the right to make.Although you say you have discontinued your practice of distributing unauthorized software packages for Creative sound cards we have seen evidence of them elsewhere along with donation requests from you. We also note in a recent post of yours on these forums, that you appear to be contemplating the release of further packages. To be clear, we are asking you to respect our legal rights in this matter and cease all further unauthorized distribution of our technology and IP. In addition we request that you observe our forum rules and respect our right to enforce those rules. If you are in any doubt as to what we would consider unacceptable then please request clarification through one of our forum moderators before posting.Phil O'ShaughnessyVP Corporate CommunicationsCreative Labs Inc.You can read some of the functions Creative disabled and how Daniel fixed them :here.In short, while Creative has been forced kicking and screaming to enable some of the features that they deliberately disabled 5.1 sound is not one of them.

Hey guys, sorry if this was asked before but i did do a search on it and found nothing. Have any of you tried this version of windows? It's called Windows7 xtreme R1 and it's suppose to be just a mod of windows 7 but with lots of cool tweaks. well i got my hands on an installation disc and I was wondering if I should give it a try but I don't want to go through all the hassle just to end up uninstalling it.

Any input???

A:Windows 7 xtreme R1, ever heard of it???

It's most likely an modded copy of Windows w/ hacks & tweaks that remove activation and certain features. It's not worth using, you can't ever trust modified system images unless you know exactly where they came from. Even then you should still use your own product key and not rely on activation work arounds.

Bottom Line: Don't use it.
Use a stock version of Windows 7 that you buy from the store and disable whatever features you don't wish to use.

It really isn't that hard to "tweak" windows to run faster. There are quite a few things you can do including but not limited to:

Running frequent cleaning products & defagmenters
Disabling Windows Features you don't use (Media Player, etc)
Disabling Visual Effects
Disabling Services you don't use.

Keep in mind some of that requires that you're an advanced user so that your don't fubar your system.

A:Xfi Xtreme Gamer , thoughts?

I have the gamer card but I did not install the 7 beta yet so can't tell you from experience. I saw several people on guru3d forums claiming they got X-Fi to run under 7 using the original X-Fi drivers for Vista - guess that's in the compatibility mode. These drivers were also hacked by one guy already so that they are recognized by Win 7 without the compatibility mode. If I was to buy today I would go for the Titanium though - it is the real PCI-e - unlike any other PCI-e sound card. They all use the PCI to PCI-e bridge and only the X-Fi Titanium is the real thing. I am sure it will be fully supported in 7 - it is the newest card from soundblaster.

I really wanted to dump it and use my onboard realtek ALC892. But, the audio to my surprise was inferior. Odd that a card I acquired in 2008 still beats out a modern onboard sound solution even beyond the ALC892 iteration.

thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I am running Vista Ultimate 32 bit, and I am thinking about getting a PCI Express X-Fi Xtreme Audio card, in the list of games Creative Alchemy supports it mentions Warcraft 3, does anyone know if this also includes the expansion pack to Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne?

I have asked tech support at Creative they could not answer my question, I have also posted the same question on the Creative forum, no replies .

At the moment I am using the onboard sound, but it has been getting choppy, that's why I am looking at a sound card. The PCI Express X-Fi Xtreme Audio by Creative is relatively cheap, that's why I am looking at that one, so as to rule out other problems.

I have updated the Realtek drivers, to the latest ones to see if this would solve the problem it didn't.
