|I see many postings here about Real Tek conflicts...|
I have an Alienware A51 with a Real Tek on the board and Creative SBxFi installed....
It caused me all kinds of headaches until I uninstalled the Real Tek and disabled the device as suggested.
The problem is that it conflicts when I plug in a USB sound device like a guitar (snakelight USB to 1/4 inch jack) or Yeti USB mike or even my Skype USB headset.
It takes all kinds of screwing around to get the USB device to work and then you lose other sound sources.....or you don't get the USB device to work....
So....solution...disable...Real Tek...the SB will provide more than ample sound processing.
Anyone else got a better work around???
