I've a computer in my hands that have a strange behavior. It has a Sound Blaster X-FI Fatal1ty Titanium something. It's properly detected by Windows 7 64 bits, there's no Yellow Exclamation mark in the device manager for anything.
When i play an MP3, i see the green "sound bar" on the right moving up and down just like its playing (See the pic bellow). So i thought that the speakers were dead. I've connected an headset in the "base" of the logitech system, no sound. I've disconnected everything behind the computer for logitech system and connected the headset directly inside the green connector of the SB, still no sound.
The owner of that computer told me that it was working 3 days ago. So i've went to the System Restore to bring the system back to a "stable state". No effet.
So i've updates the drivers of the sound cards, still no effect.
I'm out of solution at the moment.
The only solutions left is:
- Uninstall the whole driver, and reinstall the oldest one found on Creative (because the Owner doesn't have his CD anymore).
- Remove the sound card from it's slot, and try another slot...
Note: This card worked for few years without any problem. So the risk that the PCI slot is defective is almost impossible. It's also important to note that the sound card on the motherboard is properly disabled
Any idea is welcome.
