    I'll probably go through a few sets of drivers. it seems to be the theme of the week

    Trying the Realtek 2.12 first.

    Realtek Drivers 2.10 and onwards are fine and have full functionality with sound manager, I am using 2.14 now.

    Bugger, I thought 2.12 was the latest. Downloading 2.14 now. I did say I'd be going through a few versions

    So far things seem to be working. no crashes etc.

    Unfortunately since I'm using Realtek Digital Output(RCA) I have lost 5.1 surround in games

    I think I already know the answer here, but I'll noob anyway:

    Is it possible to have my onboard sound enabled in BIOS as well as having my PCI card physically installed?

    So when in Vista, I can use my auezentch with on board disabled in device manager and use the on board in Seven with the Auezentech disabled?

    I can see nothing but conflicts.... but I miss my card already

    You should be able to right click on the speaker in the system tray and go to playback devices and set the default device from there.

    Unfortunately, since I connect to my receiver via coax cable from the RCA plug, I don't have that option.

    Sorry to hear that Smarteyeball, you could always buy yourself a nice set of USB headphones, that's what I use now and they are so much better than your normal headphone jack type.

    I wouldn't mind a set of USB headphones for gaming :)

    The problem is that I use my comp to watch a lot of d/l TV shows with my girlfriend and the majority of those d/l are 2 ch output. With my PCI card, I can upmix 2ch output to 5.1 DTS output. it's the main reason I bought the card. Stereo just doesn't cut it anymore

    I think my plan of attack will be to test for a day or two with the onboard and see if I have any more crashes. If not, then I'll re-install the card and use the digital out on that and see if it crashes again. The onboard digital out and the cards digital out appear to function the same. ie no 5.1 in games

    At least that way I'll still have a 'fully' functioning card in Vista and 'working' audio in Seven. I want to keep gaming in Seven though, the framerates are much better.

    Ahh, the fun of it all :)

    Just an idea, have you tried moving it to a different slot inside your PC?

    Hi Anthony, I did swap slots when I ran Build 6956 (no difference), but haven't in 7000. I might even remove my tuner card and swap slots again to see if it makes a difference.

    Yes try it without tuner, Let us know how you go on.

    Also check to see if the soundcard is sharing IRQ with any other devices.

    Goodluck!!
