Hello, all. I have recently installed an Asus Xonar DG sound card in an AsusTek P5VDC-MX motherboard, running Win XP (SP 3) with 1 GB RAM (yeah, I know it needs more). Before doing this, I disabled the integrated audio in the BIOS, or what at least seemed to be the Audio. The actual install went fine--the card fit in the slot OK, and the drivers loaded from the CD--but there is no sound at all, not even the Windows chimes. In Control Panel, under Sounds and Audio devices, the card shows up under Audio and Voice tabs in the Sound Recording and Voice Recording boxes, but under the Volume tab it says No Device and it doesn't show up in any of the playback boxes under the Audio and Voice tabs. I have tried moving the card to a different PCI slot, but nothing. In the Xonar program it is set for 2 speaker analog playback. I have tried using a different set of speakers, but again nothing. I looked at the driver on the Asus website but it is the same as what is on the CD. This is the second card I have tried--the first was a Diamond Xtreme Sound 5.1, but it had the same problems; in fact, I thought there was something wrong with it so I got the Asus card. I uninstalled all the Diamond drivers before working with the Asus card. Apparently (to me) there is a hardware problem but I don't know what it is and I can't figure out why there seems to be recording capability but not playback. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
