I have the "X-fi Titanium HD" card and the latest "PAX MASTER PCIe Titanium Driver HD Suite 2013 V1.05 Default Tweak Edition" installed and everything works as it should but then after 1-4 weeks after an reboot or shutdown there is no audio and I get a windows taskbar notification saying that "windows failed to connect to a windows service". In the taskbar the creative volume panel which I have installed using the driver suite is gone and windows own sound icon have the no audio sign in it. I then check the device manager and it says that the driver is working. It has been this way since I got the sound card which is about 1 and half year ago and also with a previous driver suite I used. It doesn't help to reboot or shutdown. The workaround I have used is system restore in safe mode which works around 80% of the time. It has to be in safe mode because when this problem occurs windows hangs and wont restart automatically as it normally do using system restore. The other 20% of the time I have to uninstall the driver suite and reinstall. Sometimes a couple of times before it works. Its so weird because it seems be random as to when its not working. I had my suspicion pointed at when windows installs updates because its sometimes after that the problem occurs. But I really cant seem to find a reason to what causes this behaviour and what triggers it. And I don't know if it has anything to to with the driver suite but I thought maybe this was a good place ask if anybody have experienced this or of someone has any advice. I tried searching the forums here and I also tried to google the problem but I cant seem to find an answer. Thank you in advance.
