    My computer has recently begun having issues with sound, and I believe it comes from installing Battlefield 3. The problem that has arisen is that the computer will detect sound devices and applications are present in the volume control panel.
    The issue is that no applications produce any sound at all, the sound bars do not move in the volume mixer, under sound in the control panel or inside any creative software. Most applications do run still but some like Windows Media Player can simply not play any files that contain audio, a restart does fix the problem for a while but eventually it reverts back to this state.
    A friend of mine shares the same problem and it started around the same time as he installed Battlefield 3, he also has the same sound card as me. He has tried reinstalling drivers, games, Teamspeak and his only solution was to do away with his sound card, I have only had mine for a week and I don't want to waste the money.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Sound Card: Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium PCIe
