Sound works, but in a fashion
First post, but here goes.
Just upgraded to windows 7 and love it, but got some issues.
Let me explain, My motherboard is an ASUS P5VD2-MX and I have always used on board sound (no sound card) with XP this was working fine, but with Windows 7 it is not. I have visited the ASUS support site and they do not support Windows 7 with this motherboard, but they suggest downloading the old Vista drivers, this makes no difference, so have downloaded the SoundMAx drivers, (onboard sound is ADI1986a chipset) various versions, and currently got V.22.214.171.12485. After installing this and rebooting sound comes back and music plays almost perfect but with occasional glitches, video plays, but plays very jerky and at around 1/4 speed, and the higher the video quality the worse the performance e.g. HD is unwatchable, Gaming is just not funny. Red alert 3 is my game of choice and takes over 10 mins just to load!!
I have tried uninstalling & re-installing different versions, I have tried trouble shooting in compatibility mode but this makes no difference.
I tried disablling onboard sound and fitting an old soundcard (c-media) and installing the drivers for this soundcard but this makes no difference either.
Is it just a case of this motherboard is plain old and doesn't like Windows 7 or am I missing something?
Any help would be great as this is driving me mad and do not want to go back to XP.
