    I have the creaivelabs live x-gamer sound card. I have windows Xp with AMD
    2500+ processor. Well i did the windows updates, well that just messed my
    sound up. Every time i go to winamp and play music I get Crossfadin
    Directsound output v1.37 error. bad direct sound driver. I tried
    reinstalling, uninstalling and install drivers from the website. And it will
    work UNTIL i restart the pc, then same error. I have the ECS L7A7S somwthing
    like that motherboard, dont feel like looking it up. I tried reinstalling
    directx, still nothing. Please help!

  2. Which soundcard drivers are you using? If you used Windows Update, it
    will install Microsoft's own stock driver, which is considerably
    inferior. You can get the latest drivers at www.creative.com under the
    support section.

    No, not Nvidia. :) CREATIVE.

    Go to their site (or www.soundblaster.com) and look in the support section.
    Follow the instructions and you should be presented with the option to use
    an automatic driver updater program. Install it according to the
    instructions, and let it download new sound drivers for you. Hopefully
    everything should work after that.

  5. Run DXDiag.exe and see if the sound tests works. This uses DirectSound.

    Have you tried the configuration for the cross-fading DS output plug in?
    Does it work with other output plug ins? If you upgraded yer
    installation of DirectX, sometimes the Device GUID change and you have
    to reselect the output device in the configuration for the plug in.
