Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty
I recently purchased a Dell system with Windows Vista. I immediately downgraded to XP SP2 with no issue except for my sound card. I cannot seem to find the correct drivers for my Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card. The drivers on the CD won't run and neither will the non-beta drivers on creative's website. I installed the Beta Drivers, but can only hear sound out of my front 2 speakers and subwoofer, not my rear two speakers. I am sure that the wires are connected properly to the sound card. If it matters, I am running a Klipsch Promedia 4.1 setup which worked perfectly when I switched computers last week.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
What the hell are you talking about, the card isn't "vista only"

The X-fi gamer is not a vista only sound card. I have one and actually run into the same problem. How ever, and I know this isn't a real fix, I have had to hit ht e reset to default button several times (10 or more) after setting it to desired speaker settings before I was getting surround sound. It works Im not sure why, but the problem goes away until I set it back to headphones mode.

Check the stereo envelopment bar in Creative's 3D settings to make sure it is not set fully to 'front'.
