I just installed a SB Audigy 2 Platinum into my computer and now after a few hours it turns itself off and goes into a rebooting loop. If I turn it off for 5 minutes, it will play into windows and be fine for anywhere between 20 minutes to 6 hours, but will randomly turn off. I have a 2 slot graphics card and the sugo only has 1 more pci slot directly next to it that is usable. Is it possible the gfx card is overheating the sound card?

Reinstalled new drivers, PC was ok for a while then 3 blue screens, first one;

1) DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL CODE : 0X000000D1

2) It restarted after the first screen, and came up ACPI_DRIVER_INTERNAL CODE : 0X000000A3

3) It restarted again with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL CODE 0X000000A

Creative drivers are well known for being awful and their W7 versions for old Audigys are even worse.

did u just buy the soundcard? maybe you can send itback RMA it?

another option would be to get a external sound card which connects via usb they work rather well :D

It's the drivers buddy. I was trying to reuse an old audigy soundcard on Windows 7. I had no end of hassle with BSODs, was a while before i narrowed it down to the soundcard. Ended up sticking with the onboard audio....pity as when it did work the audigy still sounded much better :(

Google search "audigy support pack"

My X-Fi (one of the first ones, no official win7 drivers) works fine after I donloaded the X-FI equivalent.

Same My X-fi Pro One Of the First as well PCI been using it on Win 7 since it came out and never had any problems with it
