Xonar DX Issue

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
After much searching both on this forum and wherever else Google sent me, I am still stumped. You see, just like the guys in this thread my DX is giving me an error message.
Quote:
Power Unplugged!
The internal power for Xonar DX is not detected. The audio card may not work. Please power off your PC and then connect the power cable onto the card.

This pops up every boot and any time I try to open the audio center. The cable is plugged in though. I made sure of that by securing it in place with a small zip tie. Also, it is outputting sound exactly as it should. The real problem is that this error message doesn't allow me to access the audio center. Without the audio center, I can't switch between my front panel (headphones) to my speakers without reaching around back and doing it manually.

As per all instructions in the above mentioned thread, I uninstalled all of the ASUS drivers using Driver Sweeper. I made sure my onboard Realtek HD is disabled in the bios. Then I installed the UNi Xonar drivers, version 1.61 (latest). The problem persists.

Forget the latest drivers.
Try the UNIFIED drivers - not asus official, but they sure work better for me....
Asus official ones caused problems

Read the OP man, I'm using Uni. It worked fine when I first installed it, but after a while I got the error. It never went away.

As for another connector, I haven't tried that yet. I'm fairly certain that one is fine though. I'll try swapping it when I get home, but that won't be until 9 days from now. I'm out of town for work right now. frown.gif

Well, let us know when you get home and give it a shot. If switching connectors doesnt do the trick, I would remove the card from your PC and take some pictures of the solder joints on that 4 pin power connector. Maybe you have a cold joint, or a broken joint for that matter. Another thing it could be is a bad PCI-E slot, so you could try swapping slots as well.

If you have a Multimeter you can check for voltage at your 4 pin connector coming from your PSU.

Apologies for me being ignorant biggrin.gif!

Well, try to switch it - or put it on another pc, and if all else fails - warranty?

What helped with mine was disabling the onboard sound in the bios.

I've already got that disabled - but doing that, regardless is crazy for your "average" user.
