Default [XP/Vista/7] Soundblaster X-FI Bluescreen FIX

Soundblaster X-FI Bluescreen FIX

1. Introduction
This thread features a solution to the Bluescreen (BSOD) issue lots of people had while using an X-Fi soundcard.
It only happens when setting the game sound mode on "X-FI"; "Hardware"-mode worked fine
This solution was gathered in this thread.
We want to thank all who participated in discovering/testing this fix, especially Jorgee!, jaghammer, Sinbe, ChallengerCC, Garack, TeRR0R and the rest I forgot.

It's actually pretty easy to fix and works the same for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.


2. Installation
  1. Deinstall all current Creative Soundblaster drivers
  2. clean everything related to it with Driver Sweeper
  3. Make sure to reboot your PC
  4. Install the PAX Driver according to your card
    X-FI PCI
    PAX MASTER PCI XFI ALL OS Driver Suite V1.30 Release
    X-FI PCIe Titanium
    PAX MASTER PCIe Titanium Driver Suite V1.30 release
    X-Fi PCIe Titanium HD
    PAX MASTER PCIe Titanium HD Driver Suite V1.30 released.
  5. Reboot again.
  6. Enjoy!


3. Issues:
Q: You can't capture your gamesound when using X-Fi with UltraHigh Settings.
A: Choose Hardware->High to get it working.

If you have any further problem feel free to ask.

Cheers

Problems is that there a some soundbugs to me with this drivers, BSOD solved but the soundbugs on some maps made me change back to original drivers.

I own a XFI Gamer with no Xram.

@ Garack

I used to have those sizzling popping cracking problems with my X-Fi ExtremeMusic until I changed the PCI latency settings. This worked, however, only with Windows XP and Windows 7 PRIOR TO SP1.

Now all that helps is lowering the settings from X-Fi to High. I didn't bother trying out the PAX packages because I don't play BF2PR anymore.

Mine wont get recognized... its always the same thing i dont know why.

I have XFI PCI-e Titanium fatality champion series...

I've downloaded PAX MASTER PCIe Titanium Driver Suite V1.30.7z

Installed from ./setup.exe and then i got no sound, sound icon with X.

I ran ./drivers/setup.exe and installed WDM drivers replacing shared drivers or something like that, and don't have sound.

After some tries installing the same drivers got sound from Windows 7 default drivers i think...

In Devices manager i have High Definition Audio device, and before the uninstall i had X-FI SB or something like that.

Any help?

Sounds like you are still running default pci-bus drivers.
I suggest you try to get "chipset drivers" installed correctly. Those are drivers for your mainboard so you should go to that one's manufacturer's website and get the ones for your mobo model.

Got a PROBLEM? Check this: PR:BF2 Installation Guide

Got a common QUESTION? check here first: PR:BF2 FAQ, MUMBLE FAQ

Does this fix apply if your pr.exe just freezes when choosing X-Fi from the list? I can only run 'harware - high' if I choose X-Fi it just locks up and I have to kill the process. Haven't got any other issues from my X-Fi card, so I'm kinda iffy about reinstalling all drivers and get the right setup again, you know, 'don't fix what ain't broke' sort of deal.

Give it a try
Never heard of this issue to be honest but its not that there is nothing broken with your soundsetup.
Would be cool if you report back then.

Glad to see someone found a fix for this, I can finally run with Xfi and Ultra again.

Shame about the recording though.
