Evening Reading

By Steve Gibson, Feb 19, 2008 6:12pm PST

So as some of you have probably noticed we decided to list off the categories we've

been using next to the news items now and call them tags. We'll probably add a few more

tools/toys for messing with categories down the road. We'll see how these things go. The

internet scares me.

As for the the videogame news around these parts for today:

Lastly, a few random tags you may find interesting are things like Demo, XBox Live Arcade, Blu-Ray, Digital Distribution, Buyout, Trailer etc. Oh and of course any

particular publisher or developer you can think of such as Activision or Valve.

  • Hardware Problems

    I am running vista 64 bit, and i am trying to install a sound blaster - urgh.

    It is a PCI Express Soundblaster X FI xtreme audio (not proper xfi apparently), and whenever i try to install drivers it says "Setup is unable to detect a supported product on your system". I have tried official drivers, hacked drivers, all x64 bit vista spec mind you.

    Unfortunately the cd that came with it was cracked when it was delivered today (OEM), and so i cant run the software off the official disk. I want to actually make sure the card is working, is there any way to check that it is actually plugged in - but just not recognised by drivers?

    Alternatively maybe there is a setting in bios that has turned off my PCIe x1 slots?? ill try switching slots, and see if that helps - but as i asked before is there a way i can tell what is plugged into the motherboard?

    As per usual, official forums have no useful information or any official solutions/responses.
