Hi Lofty...

Take a look at my guide - Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues, in particuliar Step# 5 (Update your DirectX Files). In addition please make sure your video card drivers are updated. There are all sorts of links in the guide for getting what you need.

Good luck

That right there says to me you are missing the drivers for the sound card, most likely the onboard and not an actual sound card. Looking at the specs for your motherboard it has the Via 1708 audio chip on it and you can get the drivers for it from here,

http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=CRyEN2x1AF6jYScc

Just click on Download, select your OS and it is under Audio.

Next let's see what other drivers may be missing. Open Device Manager and see if there is anything with a yellow triangle next to it, if there is post back what it is and we can point you in the right direction for the missing driver(s).
