Re: X-Fi Screech of Death

My card is the same as the bottom one in the picture - but the invoice calls it the X-Fi XtremeMusic card - it has a model number SB0770 printed on the card.

This is what is so confusing.  On my paperwork when I purchased my XPS 720 it was listed as the XtremeMusic (D).  On the card itself it is listed as an SB0770.  The card I have is the one pictured on the bottom.  Nothing makes any since.

 

Back in 07 this is what Chris said my SoundCard was when I first started asking what I had.


WW202 Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic (D)

Re: X-Fi Screech of Death

It would be interesting to know the model number of the 35 cards reported as problems thusfar... I wouldn't be surprised if all or most of them were the SB0770 - regardless of the card name on the invoice or the model of the PC purchased.

 

Oddly, when I search Dell's "Drivers and Downloads" page for my service tag number, there are two audio updates available to me - both of them are for the XtremeGamer card - my invoice says I have the XtremeMusic card.  Apparently, even Dell's program that identifies available updates doesn't recognize what card goes with my PC.  I haven't tried to use these updates - don't know if they would work.

Re: X-Fi Screech of Death

jronesi,

If your sound card looks like the one on the bottom of this picture, you have the XtremeGamer. The invoice is incorrect if it says you have the XtremeMusic sound card. Look at the sound card itself. Does it say SB0467 or SB0770?

Re: X-Fi Screech of Death

As I said earlier - my sound card is the one on the bottom of the picture - and it has model number SB0770 printed on it.  The invoice has it listed as item no. 313-5834 "Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Music." 

 

When I ordered and configured my XPS420 online in early December - this card was the only audio card option available.  The PC was being marketed as the "XPS Studio 420" with the full Adobe sound/video/photo package.  That's probably why the invoice and the web site called it the XtremeMusic card.  It was being promoted as a studio rig rather than a gaming rig.

jronesi,

So you should be loading this XtremeGamer driver.

Re: X-Fi Screech of Death

Up to now I was going to say that jronesi and I were both in the same boat.  However, something is different.

My Invoice says Sound Blaster X-FI XtremeMusic (D) with an SKU # 313-5450 and a product code of VXFI.  The part number is listed as NJ941.

The card is an SB0770.  My card is the bottom card in the picture that Chris posted.

Garred,

If you have the two black Optical connectors, you have the XtremeGamer sound card.
