At the bottom right near the clock it still reports no audio output device is installed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I'm not sure why it's saying that no audio device can be found? But there is a patch you need for those Windows 7 Xonar drivers to work properly in Windows 7.
There is a patch on the Vista
part of the Asus forum where you get the sound card drivers. That patch is needed if you want your Asus Xonar drivers to work with the newer builds of Windows 7 "7200" and up. You will first need to uninstall all remnants of the Windows 7 Xonar and Vista Xonar drivers and reboot.
You will also need the latest Windows 7 Xonar drivers from the Windows 7 section of the soundcard driver
After that go to the Vista section of the Asus Xonar driver page and download the patch at the top of the page. There is no mention that this patch fixes the problem but it works perfectly none the less.
After you get the patch reinstall the Windows 7 Xonar drivers again but, instead of rebooting when prompted, install the patch and then reboot. The patch is a very small file and only takes about a second to install.
After rebooting everything should work perfectly.
