I don't know how many of you have encountered this. I run into it at least once a year. Creative's drivers run the risk of "losing" the soundcard anytime you power down and unplug the machine or suffer a BSOD. Been doing this to me since my Fatality. So far the only solution I've found is to either switch pci-e slots and reinstall the drivers or do a very thorough driver cleaning and then reinstall the drivers. May need to reboot without the card a few times; I can never remember the exact steps. Anyways this has happened to me yet again and I'm wondering if anyone has found a better option. Like some configuration file you can edit to point the drivers back to the card? I figure it has to be something simple.
