My onboard audio card on my Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard began working only sporatically, so I bought a new Soundblaster Audigy SE 7.1 soundcard. Drivers installed without trouble, but each reboot, and sometimes even without a reboot, the sound card "disappears" in Control Panel and a message appears when trying to play an Mp3, that tells me that there is a problem with the sound device installed on the computer.

I turned off the onboard sound card in the bootup sequence using the BIOS setup, but still the new soundcard, even after being moved to two other vacant PCI locations on my motherboard, disappears routinely. Again, reinstalling the drivers (a 15 second operation), resuscitates the sound successfully.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Interesting. The first thing I would think would be whether its connected well to the pci slot, but that doesn't seem like the problem.

I guess it could be a problem with the motherboard, since the sound on it only works at times too.

If you just got the card, and you can return it and try a new one, you might want to. I don't know exactly what to say though. It doesn't sound like its the card's fault.

Have you checked for updated drivers on the audio card's companies' website?
