Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium no sound

Hello everyone today i bought a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium , i uninstalled my current audio drivers,and installed it into my rig.. booted up, installed drivers off Creative website, after rebooting i get sound and everything works, but when i change a setting in the creative control panel such as.. changing between modes (Entertainment, Gaming, Audio Creation) the sound shuts completely off, only thing that fixes it is a reboot, i uninstalled all audio drivers including my motherboards driver, but still no luck help would be appreciated :bounce:

  1. You'll kill that card if you don't mute the volume when switching modes.

  3. What's to explain.
    Simply mute the volume before switching modes.
    It's a known issue.
  4. Alrighty, i muted sound before i switched, i switched from gaming to entertainment , sound went to 30% still no sound
  5. Do you have your windows volume manager(icon) and all its options set-up for your default device(X-Fi Titanium)?
  6. Yes Playback is Speakers Creative SB X-Fi, if i have music playing, it will have the green bar moving up and down, yet no sound
  7. Any other suggestions?
  8. Chances are it's really something simple like a mute selected somewhere in settings.
    Do any devices have a yellow exclamation in device manager?
  9. SM Bus Controller, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller, only things in device manager that have yellow exclamations

    You might want to update those.

  12. I'd start with these.
    ASRock XFast USB Utility ver:3.02.28
    Etron USB 3.0 driver ver:0.96_WHQL
    INF driver ver:9.2.0.1015
  13. Downloaded and rebooted, device manager yellow exclamations are gone, but changing modes still causes everything to mute
  14. Here's my last stab at this ok.
    Otherwise you have a problem beyond my expertise.
    Download DS.

    Dump everything Creative in add/remove
    Run DS in safemode
    Check off Creative
    Analyze and clean
    Reboot = normal
    At this point i'd remove the soundcard
    Put the card back in
    What slot are you using? you might want to try another.
    Download the appropriate drivers from Creative
    Install as Admin
    Good luck!
  15. Thanks for the help, appreciate it
