I have a 4700 with a creative x-fi card. The sound worked fine until I installed some MS patches. Now, only after I shutdown computer and unplug it from power I have sound for a little while.

I can't configure or access my flexijack on Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series Sound Card


well the ports on the card could be shot and the card might have been installed by a person with a static charge built on thier hands without them knowing, which can cause the card's electronics to fry and be ALMOST completely disabled. try using a different mic or taking the card out and re-installing it.
