X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion WTF!

I have a sound blaster x-fi fatal1ty champion, and drivers will not install, not from the disk, or straight downloaded from creative, I might be crazy, but it seems it doesn't seat properly in the PCIE slots (tried in a x16 and x1, they are my only available slots with my gigantic video cards)

I HAVE uninstalled all previous audio drivers
I HAVE removed devices from device manager
I HAVE COMPLETELY re-installed windows 7 x64
I HAVE disabled onboard sound in BIOS

Still a big FAIL.

The light up X-Fi logo IS lit up, but I/O panel is not.
Everytime I try to install any sound drivers it tells me "setup is unable to detect a supported audio device on your system"

Is there anyone that has had this problem? If so, what did you to to fix it?

This can be common when reinstalling windows.
There is a good chance that you're installing a windows XP drivers on windows 7 or a 32 bit driver on a 64 bit operating system.

If it doesn't work once you get the correct driver please remove the sound card completely out of the system and start the computer up without it.

Once it's in windows shut it down and put the sound card in and it should completely re detect it and from there the drivers should install.

Just make sure you have the correct drivers because the littlest thing will cause it to not work.

Hope this helps!

I will try to remove it and boot without, then re insert it and boot again, thats the only thing I haven't tried as far as I know... I do have all the windows 7 x64 drivers im sure of that. And I didn't reinstall windows until after I tried for 2 days to make it work.

BTW wicked response time dude, i literally just wrote that...

Try either the Daniel_K or PAX driver sets; I wouldn't even bother with Creatives standard drivers at this point...

NEW Question for anyone who happens to stumble across this thread...

My sound card works fine, except when I switch between sound modes ie; Game Mode/ Entertainment Mode/ Audio Creation Mode the sound playback will stop completely after switching modes, and I have to reboot system to get sound back... WTF? Also going into certain sections of the volume control in taskbar will do the same. Any help would be nice.
