Installing ASUS Xonar Essence ST PCI?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I booted up my computer last night but today I am trying to get everything working. The only drivers I have manually installed are the NVIDIA drivers.

I realized today that I have no sound coming from my computer. I'm not sure where to check in the device manager for a PCI sound card but the only thing that shows up under sound devices are 8xNVIDIA High Definition Audio and 1xHigh Definition Audio Device. Nothing says ASUS Audio Device (although I'm not even sure if that's what is supposed to show up).

Either way, I have no sound coming from my sound card. Does anyone know why this might be?

Download the drivers from Asus site, install and try again my Xonar DS didn't work without manually installing them

EDIT: Link so you don't have to hunt for them on Asus site biggrin.gif

Like Grobinov said, go to the Asus website. Also silly question, but make sure your external power is plugged in as well.

I thought the STX is the one with the external power.... not the ST.

I don't understand why websites use tools like the "Akamai download manager".

I hate that crap. Is there an alternative location I can download this from without that?

Hmm, my sound still isn't working.

The drivers are installed and in Vent I can see as input/output all of the new options are available.

But I still can't hear anything. I plugged my headphone jack into the back of the soundcard. Since it takes a large sized plug, my headphones fit perfectly. My microphone I tested in Steam and there is activity on the bar which means it IS working but I can't hear anything.

Any idea why I can't hear anything?
