Need Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi driver for my XPS L702X

Jump to solution

Hi,

I recently installed Windows 8 x64 on my XPS 17 (L702x) and while I was installing all drivers I couldn't find the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi. I can provide my service tag if needed.

P78KY 1 Kit, Software, Creative, PANZER, 1.2, W#2

In my original system configuration that's the part number identifying my purchase of this software stack. I installed the Dell Digital Delivery software and it did nothing, and I don't see this listed under "My Dell Downloads" either.

Can you help me find the files?

 

Thank you.

The installer will be in My Dell Downloads:

Ensure you use 32 bit Internet Explorer or My Dell Downloads likely won't work.

Hi Natakuc4,

I did do that in IE 10 and Chrome and it works in both. All I see is the following:

Adobe Reader - multiple languages

Roxio Creator Starter

Stage-Framework

Dell Webcam Central

Stage Music

McAfee

Stage - Photo/Music

All of the bloated crapware that I never used but no link to download the Creative SB X-Fi software pack. I tried to send an email to Dell support but I am out of warranty now. I wish I had tried this within the year of the warranty I was always able to get all the software from Dell's support website in the past.

Thanks.

Not sure I follow, you mean contact Creative customer support? No.

The Creative Website support section has drivers however it seems to be broken when I try to get on their support website.

I got in touch with creative support and the provided a new activation key. However, they mentioned that since its an OEM system I need to get the software binary from Dell. Is there any link to the creative sb x-fi mb software on dell's ftp servers?

I found my original Dell CD with Creative Software... I can share the software binary for other Dell users if you like. They would need their own Product Key to activate the software.
