Xonar configuration software not working but I get sound fine. Just cannot change settings in software

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am running a Xonar DX inside my NZXT H440 case. Other specs include 2700k, Asus Sabertooth Z77, EVGA GTX 680ftw 4 gig gpu's in sli, 16 gigs Corsair Dominator Platinum. Seasonic X650. Whenever I try to start either the Stock Asus Xonar or Uni-Xonar software, I get an error message that says that the card is not there. I had to plug the Xonar into my bottom PCIE video card slot because there was no room for it in the standard aux pci slots. By no room I mean that because of the I/O plate for the graphics cards, I have no room to place the Xonar EXCEPT the bottom pcie slot. Now, I do get sound through the Xonar. Its also seen as working properly in my device manager and the audio connector is plugged up securely as well as the external power molex connection. The problem is that the actual default Asus Xonar and Uni-Xonar software do not see the device and the configuration software for it will not load. Does anyone have a solution in mind for this?

You got me there bro. Where is this "switch"? Like I said before, the card is on and working. It plays audio directly through it to my speakers and headphones. I just cannot bring up the configuration software at all.

The XonarSwitch bypasses the original control panels. So if the original ones don't seem to work, try the unofficial one thumb.gif

I was able to download the firmware update from Asus for the DX and it worked. Also, the device manager sees it and says its working properly. Getting sound out of it is no issue either. Just no control panel because of the error message.
