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.
Thanks in advance,
