HD audio device soundmax -a driver problem

Hi Guys,

I recently installed the SupremeFX X-Fi Audio Card that came with my ASUS Maximus II Formula. It worked previously on my 2.1 desktop speaker for a while but just few days ago I got issue with soundMax. I tried unistalled and reinstalled the software from DVD that came with it but problem with the "HD audio device soundmax -a driver problem" persist. I am stuck! Thank you in advance.

id102, welcome to the forums.

I wouldn't use the disk that came with the motherboard, doubt it even has Windows 7 drivers on it, Instead use the one from Asus for it,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards - ASUS Maximus II Formula

And if you want the X-Fi software for it as well they have an update version, look under Utilities to find it.

Hi,

Thank you for reply.
I've downloaded all relevant Drivers for ASUS Maximus II Formula from ASUSTek Computer Inc as you suggested. In Utilities I installed "AsusUpdt_V71706", Installed the latest "soundMAXAD1988B_Adio_V610X6585_Win7", and lastly installed "SB_XFi_V10_R19_XpVistaWin7" and updated it. After restarting windows I am still having issue with it. Will that help if I reinstall win7 and start all over again this mean I have to reset my RAID ARRAY again but I fear that I may get the repeated problem...Is there any other way around this problem.Thanks again
