Windows 7: PCI Sound card not detected

PCI Sound card not detected

Background
I have an ASUS M4N78 Pro mother brd with build in sound. Window 7 did not detect the on board VIA1708S 8-chan High Definition Audio CODEC.

Current situation
I read Win 7 had problems with mother brd sound chips so I purchased an Auxentech X-Raider 7.1 PCI sound card.
When I attempt to install the Windows 7 drivers I get a small error window popping up saying " Please plug-in C-Media Audio Device device"

Can anyone help?

mmino, welcome to the forums.

First make sure that the Via onboard is disabled in the bios. Next re-seat the card (maybe even try a different PCI slot) and try the driver again.

Solved the problem.

I failed to mention that this Windows 7 OS was operating as a virtual machine.
I had to install the emulation AC97 Realtek audio driver for Win 7.
