View Full Version : Sound Driver problem after installation?

10-27-2011, 11:52 AM

yesterday i've started the game for the first time, went through the installation steps without any problems and had also no problems when i was playing. (except for some connection issues and a too high difficulty)

i did no other installation, nor did i change anything hardware/os related.

today i've turned the computer on just to find out that there is no sound. even if there was still some creative labs driver in the hardware manager, every soundblaster related software told me that i don't have a soundblaster in my computer.

after a windows update, chipset driver update, graphic card driver update (i was 2 versions behind already, so i did that as well) i've decided to reinstall my soundcard driver (there is no new version) which solved the problem. though all my settings are gone.

so the question is: if it's possible that some of the installer messed with my soundcard driver?
and, am i really the only one with said problem?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965
8192MB RAM
AMD Radeon HD 6870
SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium

kind regards
