Creative Audigy's Creative Audigy's "Squeal of Death"
Sat May 18, 2002 | 8:17A| PermaLink
The problem has been characterized as "severe," according to representatives at Creative. The bug seems to lurk only in the interaction between the Audigy and either the Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating systems. After several minutes of normal operation, the screen will freeze with either several shrill beeps or a prolonged screech, forcing the PC to be rebooted. No single operation seems to cause the problem; MP3 playback will cause the error on one machine, while others have found that a certain game, not MP3s, cause the glitch. The problem has even occurred on demo software Creative has shipped with the card, according to a poster on Dell's support site. The bug has not affected PCs running Windows ME. "We have not been able to really isolate what is really causing the problem," said Mala Sharma, a representative of Creative's brand management team in Milpitas, Calif. However, Sharma said that it appears to be a bus resource issue, such as when too many applications attempt to access the card.
