  1. The problem is reported to Microsofts feedback program with ID 420642. Please comment, comfirm and vote to help Microsoft correct the issue. Simple registration required.
  2. I completly agree. Shadow is too thick, very nice at the welcome screen. Send feedback?
  3. I believe the audio drivers in current Windows 7 builds are not working properly, this may cause problems on certain audio devices. I have personally encountered unrepairable audio problems using SPDIF TOSLink with external creative X-Fi sound card.
  4. I have been doing quite a few tests now. It is definatly a creative driver issue... I tried to uninstall all Creative drivers, with console launcher and use only the native windows drivers for USB Audio Device. I also uninstalled the AMD USB Audio Driver Filter (seems to make no difference at all). Windows now has two devices "Speakers - SB X-Fi Surround 5.1" and "Digital Audio Interface - SB X-Fi Surround 5.1". Both are working properly and the latency is gone, so this must be a creative driver issue... I am using the "Digital Audio Interface - SB X-Fi Surround 5.1" as default as I have the
  5. The AMD USB Filter Driver seems to make no difference whether not installed (clean os), installed or uninstalled on Windows 7. The Creative beta driver (and Vista driver) both produce the latency, windows 7 natively supports the external soundcard however im unable to tell whether the latency is there or not, the native drivers corrupt and jitter the sound too much.
  6. Im wondering if it could be something I use on vista called "AMD USB Filter-Driver" that installs default with my HP laptop. It should increase accuracy and speed performance of external USB devies such as speakers and TV tuners. This installs fine on windows 7 also, but I notice no difference. Maybe this is the problem?
  7. I just tried to reinstall the driver and it broke my whole system. Restore not working nor repairboot. Cant boot the system. Ill try a fresh install and se if it works...
  8. Same issue with the vista x64 drivers.
  9. Testplatform HP Pavilion DV-5 Entertainment Notebook PC (4GB RAM, 2GHz dual-core) with Microsoft® Windows® 7 x64 and Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1. Driver: USB_W7DRVBETA_US_1_01_0091. Tested with clean installed OS and only this driver. The Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 is connected with optical TOSlink to a 5.1 Pioneer reciever. There occures great (and increasing) latency while playback of videofiles. -Sound will very noticably loose sync from video within a minute (all filetypes, not a codec problem). The latency will not occure with the internal notebook speakers, nor on same
  10. Guess thats the only way to find out, but im running only latest official drivers on my system.
  11. I have looked, but not knowing what to look for makes it kind of difficult.
  12. Anything else I can do to debug? Another logger etc.?
  13. Memtest returns no errors at a quick 20min test, will try more firmly also. To me this seems like a driver/software issue.
  14. Checkdisk returned no errors. Will try memtest also.
  15. Yes it is. Something is clearly wrong. Defrag of both registry and hdd is done. I am not familiar with memtest and checkdisk. The machine is only a couple of months old.
  16. The bootlog from procmon application mentioned above. I click enable bootlog and reboot, then when I open the app after reboot it asks to save/compress logfile, this crashes the application after a couple of minutes. I have disabled all startup applications and services that i do not need. still there is a tremendous delay after desktop is loaded of anything up to 4 minutes before all is loaded and windows idles (responds for use).
  17. I cannot compress the log file. The application crashes at about 60% of log file compression. Any idea?
  18. I have a pretty clean vista system on my lapotop, with not many startuo items. however after desktop loads there is a delay of nearly 3-4 minutes before its all ready to go... How do I troubleshoot and find out whats taking so long to load?
  19. I suggest making a sticky of Windows 7 registry tweaks. Here are some to start off. ; Add "Copy To" to options in files and folders context menu. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To] @="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}" ; Add "Move To" to options in files and folders context menu. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To] @="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}" ; Sets Windows to automatically end task of programs which are either hanged or taking longer time than expected to exit. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control
  20. This question is theoretically for educationally use ONLY. The 4GB RAM limit of Windows 7 (as in vista) is known to be software limited from MS. However there is a "workaround" using certain legit(!) files from Windows Server 2008 if you own both versions, replaced with Vista system files for Windows Vista to take advantage of more than 4GB of RAM. As Server 2008 can handle up to 64GB RAM. Is this possible also in the Windows 7 kernel?
  21. By the way, remote does not work in WMC either, althoguh it works for booting PC and arrows, so IR is fine.
  22. I have similar problems with 32bit on HP laptop, also media keys on WMC IR remote and logitech keyboard (native windows 7 drivers) does not respond. Play, Pause, Skip etc. does nothing. All works natively on Windows Vista without additional software or drivers. Myst be a WMP12/windows 7 issue?
