then the Sound card driver again.

Don't forget the Restore Points before each installation.

There are 73 files to choose from. Don't know which one to choose.

P.S. On a slight aside, if I switched to a new sound card, would this same problem be guaranteed to remain, no matter which sound card I plugged into my computer.

P.P.S I don't currently have an alternative sound card, BTW, I am just thinking ahead.

Sorry about that, you said install the chipset, there is an option there called chipset, just noticed. Still interested in your opinion on my P.S, though.

The board has onboard HD audio if we can't get the sound card to work.

Do you mean the motherboard?

Given that the problem still exists, I'm probably in favour of trying onboard sound. Fancy sound bells and whistles on a flashy sound card isn't a high priority to me, as long as I can still plug my speakers or headphones into the computer somehow.

How does one get the onboard sound to work?

Just checked, you have Enabled onboard sound, and have a sound card, so confusion, uses neither.

Go into BIOS

Advanced menu

Onboard Devices Configuration

HD Audio Controller

use the + sign to change to Disabled

F10 to Save & Exit

y key to accept changes.

then try to install the Sound Blaster driver

Still no change. Cannot install Sound Blaster driver; the error message is the same.

Ok we go with onboard.

Remove the Sound Blaster card from PC

then Enable the OnBoard sound in the BIOS

go here to Asus and install the audio driver for the board
http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...m=P5B&p=1&s=22

Don't use the Beta

Set a System Restore Point before installing any drivers just in case
Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Restore click radio button Create a restore point and follow instructions

Thank you very much. The sound is back. So it seems my new video card and old sound card didn't like each other. I'll keep my sound card to perhaps put in another machine one day.

Success, got there in the end. Thanks for the feedback. But to be fair, from what I found out that card is a bit of a stinker to install.
