Need help on fixing sound card problems or revert to using onboard? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
OK this is seriously pissing me off now.

I've uninstalled the ASUS drivers and disabled the card through the device manager. I then re-enabled my on-board audio and installed the drivers and I get no sound through the motherboard output.

Now I don't know what the hell to do, go back to the glitchy sound of the Xonar or keep trying to fix the on-board. Problem is, I don't know what the hell else to try.

When you go back to your DG, Give Uni Xonar drivers a try they may fix your isues with your card,I not on a DG.But I dont have any of your problems.

Yes the Xonar cards does it in software as it doesnt have a processor but a chipset. Most creative chips are hardware processor, only a few of them like the Xtreme audio are not.

Uni Xonar drivers has muiti options for driver install, one of them fixes DPC issues. Also make those with DS/DG quite happy with the drivers.

I already tried those Low DPC latency Uni Drivers, I was using them when I took that screenshot in my first post. They didn't solve anything though, in fact they screwed up sound when playing movies (I played a quick AVI file to test it).

Only other thing I can think of would be to remove everything else that I haven't yet under sound, video and games controllers, but I'm worried it's gonna kill all my game installs, as most of them came with sound drivers (Open AL etc) of their own.

Did this just start recently, maybe with Win 7 Sp1 download? If so, reinstall motherboards drivers.

If your running Win XP like sig says, disregard.

XP only I'm afraid, and I got all critical updates installed.

Re-install Windows XP.

Use this tool to get your key:

http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/

Then when you re-install everything install drivers one by one. Run DPCLAT and check the latencies after each driver install. That will tell you which driver or software is conflicting because you can't really base it on Xonar drivers only because you have a bunch of other software installed already, I found out ASUS AI Suite cause high latencies but on one of my previous setups it was called by a PCI card. Sometimes it's a piece of software, sometimes it's hardware but sometimes you can't be sure until you do a full OS re-install.

My guess is that it's another piece of software conflicting with the Xonar and you need to disable/remove/uninstall it.

Re-installing is not even the last resort right now, as the software I have installed is spread across the 3 separate hard drives. Until I get some backup drives (probably in summer) re-installing isn't an option.

And I can base it all on the crappy Xonar because the problems only started as soon as I installed it.

Again, sorry not an option. I've had various problems since I installed this sound card and I would have to revert to a near-clean install to fix problems with it.


I will try one more thing, and that is installing first the on-board, then uninstalling it with DriverSweeper, then installing the normal Xonar drivers. If problems persist still after that, I'll try going back to on-board or no sound at all.

Well I tried re-installing the card and it is slowing my PC down to a crawl. I will be looking for an alternative to it, but for now, it's back to on-board, which is also laggy, but is my only option now. Never gonna buy another Asus or Xonar product again, that's for sure.
