I have an Asus M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard, AMD Atholon II X3 435 cpu, 4GB (2 x 2GB) memory and am running Windows 7 professional. (Everything in Bios is set at auto - no overclocking.) Despite downloading the latest drivers for onboard sound, it doesn't work. I have disabled this and installed an Asus Xonia DG, which is supposedly compatible with Win 7. The drivers for this will not load. They get about a quarter of the way through and then request a restart. After restart, Windows informs me that there is no audio device installed and there is a problem with the driver. Have downloaded the latest drivers, tried installing in again and also in "Safe Mode" - zilch! What am I neglecting to do? Help please.
Thanks for that pointer. I am going to remove Windows 7 and re-install it, but will download the driver from that website first. Trouble is, I have an appallingly slow internet connection and these drivers could be becoming corrupt in the downloading. :-( Thanks again.
Thanks again for your help. I have at last got the sound card to work in Windows 7, but to do this, I had to install the sound drivers before I installed the MB and Graphic cards drivers. In fact I had to install the MB drivers last, because they appeared to be causing all sorts of problems. Anyway, alls well that ends well and thanks again for your help. :-)
