Slow shutdown after installing latest X-Fi and 7900 GTX drivers.

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Skybuck Flying, Sep 8, 2010.

  1. Hello,

    I was playing the closed and open beta of Company of Heroes Online and I
    decided to install new drivers for the soundcard and videocard in my
    computer to be fully up-to-date and maybe it would give some more
    performance.

    The drivers installed are:

    1. SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0013.exe
    2. 258.96_desktop_winxp_64bit_english_whql.exe

    As expected it caused problems... it's rare not to get problems these days.

    The symtomps are as follows:

    1. Windows shutdown takes very long.
    2. First the GUI does nothing except shutdown a few tray icons.
    3. It stops with the connection icon which is still displayed and any other
    icons after that.
    4. After a minute or so it goes to the shutdown screen and shows something
    like:
    5. Closing connections.
    6. Saving profile settings.

    All of which take multiple minutes to complete.

    Any other activity I have done is defrag both harddrives a little bit...
    other problems with the operating system are a corrupted account/profile...
    windows update needs another account but it never had the slow shutdown
    problem. Even with high fragmentation (33% to 56%) it would still shutdown
    fast.

    Now there is no harddisk activity... and it just seems to twiddle it thumbs
    and do nothing for a while.

    I don't like it and I want it fixed.

    I already tried:

    1. Disabling the Nvidia tray icon in msconfig.
    2. Disabling the nvidia display driver service.

    None of which helped so far.

    Perhaps I will need to deinstall one of the drivers and install an old one
    to see if that helps.

    Question is which driver would be responsible for slow shutdown... it's
    difficult to diagnose...

    Are there any windows xp tools/help options to see a shutdown log ?

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  2. The manual of the nvidia driver said to deinstall NTune... there is indeed
    an older version of NTune on my harddrive.

    At the time I tried to deinstall it... but no deinstall program available
    ?!?

    Now I come across this message on a nvidia forum which mentions NTune in
    connection with a slow shutdown:

    http://forums.nvidia.com/lofiversion/index.php?t28221.html

    I also tested X-Fi drivers with 4 GB of RAM.

    I think the youtube music video's sounded a bit noisy/crackling... just
    slightly... so I switched back to MaxMem = 2GB option.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  3. I did a little bit of experimenting myself with accounts... I used a
    different account to login/startup and shutdown and the same problem occurs.

    So it's not related to windows account/profile problems.

    It's quite an annoying problem which already has led to too many resets for
    my taste...

    I want the problem solved so now I am going to try and remove the nvida
    display driver to see if that is indeed the cause of the shutdown problem.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  4. First however I am going to delete the ntune files to see what happens... if
    they are in used I should get a lock/access violation...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  5. Also the ntune and nvidia drivers dissappoint me big time... I was hoping
    that temperature information was available like in the very old drivers...

    However I have found another tool which does show temperature... just one
    tiny little sensor and reading but it's better than nothing the tool is
    called
    GPU-Z instead of CPU-Z ;)

    So now I am going to delete NTUNE and if nothing happens then I remove
    NVIDIA display driver as well and simply boot in 640x480 and shutdown in it
    to see what happens ;) :)

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  6. NVidia Display Driver removed.

    The problem remains.

    I was kinda hoping that it was the display driver.

    Other possible causes which are on my mind:

    1. X-Fi Soundblaster Driver. (I am going to remove that next)
    2. .NET Framework 4.0 which was installed by Company of Heroes Online.
    3. Modifications to DirectX9 by Company of Heroes Online.

    When 2 and 3 happened I kinda had a bad feeling about it... Same with 1 as
    well.

    Hopefully it's not 2 and 3... I am used to 1 being buggy but please not 2
    and 3...
    that's just to much shit.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  7. Something interesting happened while trying to deinstall the x-fi audio
    driver.

    It said something like:

    "Cannot stop the X-Fi..."

    Then it tried to restart and hang again and I pressed the reset button...
    for the 15 time
    or so.. I have better things to do with my life than wait for a shitty
    computer to shutdown...
    like sleep.

    If all went well which it didn't then now the computer should shut down
    fast... but I doubt it..

    Let's try anyway.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  8. I think I have identified the problem.

    The problem is indeed with the X-Fi soundblaster driver which I kinda
    expected it to be...

    Others have warned for laggy sound issue's with that driver... but I have
    not seen shutdown
    problems being mentioned... well it's probably real... or it was a lucky
    shutdown... but I don't
    think so it was lightning fast shutdown with the x-fi audio driver.

    So now I will go back to my previous X-Fi soundblaster driver which was
    probably this version:

    SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0008.exe

    Or either an even older one:

    SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_15_0006.exe

    Me gonna try the 0008 one...

    Good thing I kept these drivers... ;) :) Since I just cleaned my system a
    bit... I think I did
    delete something related to drivers... but maybe not...

    NVidia also constantly changes installation folders and doesn't have a
    custom installation folder
    neither does creative... well at least with nvidia I knew which was the
    older driver cause the files
    stay there or something... at least the unpacked files or something...

    With creative I am not sure...

    So a little bit more experimentation to come. I am probably close to a
    solution.

    At least I can probably use the newer display drivers ;) :)

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  9. Ok,

    I think the problem is now solved... and I am pretty glad/happy that I
    solved this problem... because it was starting to annoy the shit out of me !
    ;) :)

    NVidia driver back installed...

    Older X-Fi driver installed...

    It's kinda interesting how the older X-Fi driver did preserve my x-fi
    equalizer profiles and how the newer driver seemed to delete it..

    So the newer driver is bad in many ways ! ;) :)

    Now I have to go find myself a good defragging program or simply use
    windows's defrag... because this slow harddisk/file system is slowly also
    getting on my tits... and it really needs a defrag... 33% to 56%
    fragmented... yeah I would say it needs a defrag...

    This will also make my system run faster and ofcourse load COH faster...
    since especially COH was fragmented badly... 16.000 fragments just for the
    data file hehe.

    But but but but but I shouldn't be so hasty... and first do a check disk on
    C: and D: because ofcourse I don't want no defragging to take place if the
    file system was hit but the memory corruption I had a long time ago... or if
    anything else happened to it... especially since all these resets...

    So a check disk seems more than wise... and then I shall see if I can find a
    nice optimization defragging utility... hopefully without nasty bugs...

    And then I'll give my harddisk the long defrag treat... which will probably
    take at least 24 hours maybe even up to a week...

    I did delete some stuff... 50 GB on each drive... but window's defrag says
    it's not really enough... but it could run... but it's kinda strange.. it
    wants 15% free... that's a bit much Mr. Defrag ! ;) :)

    Man I had to delete my Reptile video's and my Predator vs the iJustine
    video's that kinda sucked but I had no choice... I had to give my harddisk
    and mr defrag some space to eat and work with... and I rarely used that
    stuff anymore and it's just bullshit... **** the bullshit... I need a fast
    system !

    And I also delete some old movies... like battlestar raptor and razor and
    what not... and ofcourse theeeeee euhm gladiator thing... sparta or
    something.. :) I still had those hehe... and some games install files like
    quake4... and stuff like that... quake4 install files were fragmented too..

    Let me check.. nonono don't worry the game is still on my drive... I don't
    like Quake4... but I do like Quake3... but I feel Quake4 is mandatory in
    case I ever want to install some new special mod that ever comes ya never
    know ?! ;) :) LOL what a bullshit reason perhaps ?!? Maybe not... time will
    tell..

    I have seen it happen with RTCW ET/True Combat Elite ! ;) That was a pretty
    cool/sweet mod... I wouldn't wanna miss out on something that cool ;) :)

    But I doubt the plastic like graphics engine of Quake4 will ever have such a
    thing ! ;) :) Hihi ;) :)

    By the way... I did see an interesting youtube video today it was called:
    "MineCraft"...

    It looked fucking cool/awesome... the graphics like really old school...
    which took my attention... like what is this shit.. I gotta check it out...

    It was almost like quake pixelized big zoom pixels you know...

    And it turns out it's some kind of mining game... where you can walk around
    with an axe and cut yourself into the depths... like stones/boxes
    representing
    the earth...

    I think the concept is pretty fucking cool... especially if some quake sauce
    is added to the mix...

    I am not sure if it's a boring game just ment to construct mines... or if
    your supposed to kill one and another... but that last would be preferred !
    ;) :)

    LOL.

    None the less I gotta check it out and play it a bit I think... I wanna
    place my own torches too ! HIHI =D

    And play with the flooding water or flooding lava ?!?!? I am not sure what
    that's about but sounds kinda exciting...

    And my grand daddy was a miner... so gotta show him some respect and do it
    myself too... virtually LOL.

    So I don't get dirty ! Eat that grandpa ! ;) :) LOL.

    And now you can all go **** off in hell ! YEAH ! =D

    Cause I gotta go now do some awesome stuff like usual ! ;)

    Byebyebyebybybybbbbbbbye bye,
    Skybuck.

    P.S.: Company of Heroes Online is pretty sweet... but also highly
    addictive... so watch yourself there people ! ;) :) But I got it under
    control... after
    two weeks of non stop playing or so ! Man it fucking wrecked my life for a
    short period there ! Fricking unbelievable... but it was nice...

    Like a big group orgy ! HAHAHAHAHA. Dirty fucker ! LOL.

  10. Hmm, changing audio drivers for X-Fi like that is apperently not without
    consequences.

    During the installation of the older driver it askes if I wanted to
    overwrite newer driver files and I said yes.

    Now I boot twice and each time the following error message is displayed:

    "
    EAXModule: DLLML.exe Application Error

    The exception unknown software exception (0xC0000005) occured in the
    application at location 0x73ed2659.

    Click on OK to terminate the program
    "

    I used to get this error message when I shutdown the system... but now it
    pops up when I boot the system...

    Weird...

    Oh well later I will have to test the sound to see if it's still working or
    not...

    I don't think I got this message right after driver installation and boot so
    it's kinda weird...

    Maybe bad fluck of luck or so... or maybe it's because I changed settings in
    x-fi console... hmm..

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  11. Today while login-ing into windows the computer crashed with a blue screen
    of death.

    The problem was with the audio driver of x-fi.

    The driver is:

    SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0008.exe

    I probably never really tested this driver, just downloaded it.

    According to my log the driver my PC used to use was:

    SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_15_0006.exe

    Fortunately I still have it so I will downgrade further to see if it can fix
    the following problem as well:

    "Audio Driver Emulator: DLLML.exe - Application Error"

    This could also explain the freeze in coh.

    I also see mdm.exe running which is kinda weird... maybe because of
    exceptions in the audio driver ?

    Minidump for 0008 driver crash is here:

    Apperently there is also a big memory dump which shows this:

  12. Hmmm... there is no de-install option for the audio driver from 0008...

    I am going to try and simply overwrite the current driver with an install
    from 0006.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  13. Well that didn't work.

    Creative Labs has now put me into the position that I have to remove
    everything again, and reinstall everything again.

    This time I am going to make a copy of the installation CD in case it ever
    goes broken otherwise I would be screwed with the next driver
    update and same bad stuff happens...

    Also then I don't have to go fetch the CD anymore.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  14. Hmm interesting,

    The soundblaster came with 3 cd's:

    1. Installation CD
    2. Music Creation Application CD
    3. Demo Disc

    Gonna try and make a copy of all 3 and install from the iso ;)

    Then install 0006 then a little bit more of defrag and then my system should
    be good again ;)

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  15. Ok,

    It took like 3 reboots just to get all Creative Labs stuff off my drive...
    could thing I defragged my drives lately ;)

    Now I can go install it again.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  16. I forgot to mention something, this time I will try to install via the
    ISO's/Daemon Tools...

    I am curious if it will work... I don't think so.. but maybe it will if the
    daemon virtual cd rom driver gets started before the installing
    programs reboot starts...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  17. Hmm interesting it has a checkbox if I want to install Doom 3 Update for
    X-fi...

    I think I already installed that... but gonna check it anyway to see what
    happens...

    So far it seems to be working... no copyright protection bullshit so far...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  18. Hmm there are still a lot of left over files after deinstalling
    everything...

    For now I am gonna leave it on the drive... hopefully it won't interfere
    with the installation.

    program files/creative yadayada...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  19. Yup Doom 3 patch 1.3 is already installed so setup program is gonna exit
    now... hehe..

    The rest for x-fi was installed so far... first CD/ISO ok so far...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  20. Maybe the entire remove was unnecessary but I don't think so...

    The update 0006 said it would remove audio console ?!? Does that mean the
    same thing as audio drivers ?

    Perhaps or perhaps not.

    In Add/Remove programs I did see an entry called "Creative Audio Console"...

    Perhaps only that needed to be removed and reinstalled but I don't think
    so...

    The Audio Console is probably the visual interface for volume.

    I am gonna restart one last time to see if the common error
    message/exception crash is still present on boot which it always did.

    The driver 0006 also said it found newer drivers on my drive ?!?

    I hope it didn't install those ;)

    As long as my shutdown it super slow then I think it didn't use 0013 at
    least...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.
