    The following was my interjected response to "Audio Problem" in another forum:
    I have a very similar "Sound" problem. I have a dual boot setup, Win 7 64 and
    XP Pro 32. I have a brand new ASUS sound card. All is fine in XP. Sound card is
    not detected in Win 7. How is it possible to install drivers to a device that
    isn't there?

    I have not yet found a fix as I only clean boot installed Win 7 Ultimate
    yesterday (and already don't like it) but I am a very determined person, and if
    there is a fix, I will find it. I do however believe it to be a flaw of some
    sort in Win 7 as it doesn't even detect the card. I just had back surgery and it
    isn't easy working on pc's. but I will give it my best shot. I plan on
    installing 3 sound cards at the same time. This is only to see if Win 7 detects
    any of them. I will let you know the outcome as soon as I can. In the meantime,
    I suggest a different approach to the problem. Like I stated earlier, I believe
    the problem lies in the operating system. How is it that the sound card is not
    even detected? As in your case, block306, Win 7 sees your sound card
    intermittently.

    Try the following please. Go to filehippo.com, download, install and run
    Speccy. You will find it listed under "System Tuning". Then go from there. Keep
    me posted. I am still working on display issue with Win 7.

    Have you gone to the Asus website to determine if your sound card is
    compatible with Win 7? If so, have you downloaded the most current drivers
    direct from Asus and installed them?

    I've seen quite a few cases over the past 10+ years where hardware
    remains invisible until the drivers are installed. It's not really
    that unusual.

    No because he believes that if you don't have the device detected it is
    impossible to install drivers for it.
