    You could try booting in to safe mode, uninstalling everything related to Creative using something like[url="http://www.revouninstaller.com/" rel="nofollow"> Revo Uninstaller[/url], then go in to Device Manager and uninstalling your card from there. Then download [url="http://www.phyxion.net/" rel="nofollow">Driver Sweeper[/url] and use that to clean up any remaining bits and pieces.
    Now reboot in to Windows proper and reinstall.
    Never know, may get it working again.
    Worst case scenario, it could be the actual card... but I doubt it.

    already did that but still no luck, and o fyi I'm using the PAX driver cause it has my hardware ID coded on it so it can detect my X-Fi during installation, the official drivers can't detect my X-Fi

    % Do you know specifically which X-Fi you have, or its model number?
    The model number is printed on a sticker on you X-Fi. You'll have to open up your case to view it.
    You could always try[url="http://forums.creative.com/t5/Sound-Blaster/SB-X-Fi-Series-Support-Pack-2-0-05-5-2009/td-p/527485" rel="nofollow"> Dan K's 2.0 support pack[/url] for X-Fi's.

    The model number's a useful thing to know.
    There's so many different sodding varieties of X-Fi and Audigy, it does help to know exactly which one you own.

    % Either of these should work with your card.
