Here is my help. The problems I’m having with a Dell OEM XFi are identical to those being suffered by users of the XFi retail edition, so this is nothing specific to Dell, but even so neither Dell or Creative are rushing to solve the problems BSOD, Screech of death, loss of audio, channel mix ups, and sleep problems. Except I get no sound whatsoever. I installed a sound card, but device manager won’t detect it. I’ve had the same problem after I’ve reinstalled Windows Vista for nearly a year. I added a second hard drive a few years back for storage. Anyway thanks for your help.
