Anyone else experiencing a BSOD after a driver update from Creative or since Update 14?

I am able to run the game fine through HDMI connection via TV but it's just an impractical setup for me and only set it up like that for testing. When I have sound connected through my sound card and select my server to launch the game it goes to BSOD. Anyone else experiencing this?

I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer card.

    Does it happen with any other game?  BSODs are rare these days and software (other than drivers) almost never causes a BSOD.  

    Does your motherboard have onboard sound connectors?  Try using those and get rid of the Creative drivers and sound card.  If you can tell a difference and don't like the difference, get a different sound card.  Creative has been abysmal at driver support since Vista released.

    If you need suggestions on sound cards, post in the hardware forum.
