    constant audio crackling and no sound!


    Every time I reboot it seems I lose my audio on my sound blaster x-fi titanium pci express sound card. Also; it seems like every time I turn my audio controller off for awhile then back on; i get at high pitched hum sound and then when i try and play something I get crackling audio. What the heck is up with windows 10 and these issues? Ive never had these problems with my sound card under windows 7. Why cant creative get off their duff and come out with the new software and drivers for these cards? I mean they had months before w 10 came out to prepare for this but did they do it......nope! its really driving me nuts!!! anyone have a workaround for this until creative gets their crap in gear?

    Do you have the proper drivers installed for your card?. I have a Creative card too (built-in Sound Blaster Recon 3Di) and I had to install the w7/w8 drivers. According to Creative webpage proper w10 drivers will be released around end of august/september.
