Thank you for your reply.. I will repeat the format and os installation from the beginning and i will completely disconnect the speakers this time (do you think this could help?). Can I ask for some advice on this following? Is there a way to stop vista to automaticaly install drivers when I connect something new to my computer? Maybe that is the problem. I remember clearly that vista found and installed drivers for z cinema before I installed the software included in the cd of Z cinema.Perhaps if I could install drivers for the speakers manually , then the problem maybe will dissapear. And also a general question: Z cinema speakers work without a soundcard? In other words I should disconnect or disable any other sound devices?
Thank you for your time

Also i forgot to ask you this: The software provided from logitech site includes drivers for the speakers? Or only their settings software? I noticed this: (photo) The driver provider seems to be microsoft. Isnt that wrong? Shouldn't it say logitech instead? Thats why I asked you how I can stop the automatic installation that vista try to do when i connect the speakers for the first time so I can manually install the "proper" drivers for them?

When installing you OS you shouldn't have anything connected but the bare essentials: keyboard, mouse, monitor.
Follow the directions in the user guide for the Z-Cinema when you are going to install it. (after the OS has been installed)
Use the Z Cinema software from the web.
The Z Cinema software is only to give the surround effect, not the basic USB drivers.

Dear Mike_M, Thank you for your post. Everything seems to be ok now. I dont know if this is the proper topic to post but I'll shoot it anyway:
I have selected in the z cinema software settings "Display settings : Off" cause i dont want to see these large font displays everytime I adjust the volume or whatever. But everytime the pc starts , the z cinema software seems to ingore my previous setting and display the messages anyway.
Can I do anything about it? Of course I can reset the display settings to off with a right click in the z cinema icon everytime my computer starts but to tell you the truth it's getting a little annoying.
Thank you in advance for all the help you provide

Oh and btw, the reason that the driver is signed by Microsoft is so it won't give an annoying popup warning when it installed. Like this one http://codefromthe70s.org/images/kernelsigning_nos

Hi all, I am experiencing the same problems. I also have Win7 64bt running. 1. After the PC went to sleep, the sound is gone. > Only reboot will help 2. No sound at all. > Only reboot will help. 3. Sometimes the speaker stops responding twhen using the remote controller. > Only a reboot will help 4.The display-settings can't be turned off in the zCinema menu. Only changes in the registry will fix that. I never had any problems in Vista 64bt.
So please fix this issue !

A new piece of the evidence. When I am listening music using wmplayer , wmplayer will crash after a while. It has happened to me a view times now. The player stays in "not responding" state until I kill the zCinema process ! So it is obvious there is a conflict between them.
