I recently updated my Creative SB X-Fi driver with windows, and after restarting my computer, found that I do not get any sound at all, except in FL Studio. I recently uninstalled ASIO4ALL, which I never got to work properly.

Any advice on how to get sound to work again would be greatly appreciated.

Roll back/reinstall the drivers that worked...that's what I would do.

Alright, I just reinstalled v2.0 of the driver, yet there is still no sound. I do not get the playback error with my MP3 files however, but there still is no sound.

The headset that I am using has its own driver, and I am thinking that the computer is only using the Creative SB driver, rather than the Headset. Is there any way I set it so that it uses the headset over the other driver?

Could re-installing ASIO4ALL v2 fix it?

I have no idea what ASIO4ALL is...so your guess is better than mine.

Seems to me that you don't have anything to lose by so doing, but...I've been wrong before.

As for the sound drivers, try seeing if the speaker ports work.

ASIO4ALL, (I think) sets your sound card so that it can send and receive at the same time, something that you need for the Voice Encoder in FL Studio. I have since given up on the VoCoder, and care more about my audio at the moment. For some reason the audio works fine in FL Studio, which perplexes me. I will try listening to audio with the audio jack in the back with my headphones.

Edit: I just plugged in my headphones and the audio works perfect. I have come to the conclusion that the error exists either in my driver for the headset, the headset being physically broken, or that my PC refuses to use the headset driver.

Alright, I managed to fix the audio.

Poking around in the device manager proved to be fruitless, and installing drivers didn't do the trick either. However, simply unplugging the headset and moving it to a different USB port solved the trick. It automatically installed the driver for the headset, and for some odd reason, began to read my external hard drive, which I had no idea was unplugged.

Thanks for your help hamluis, realizing that my headphones worked made me switch focus to my headset and not the driver.
