Windows 7: Auzentech X-Fi forte - analog turns off

Auzentech X-Fi forte - analog turns off

Auzentech X-Fi Forte 7.1newest driver 1.3 installed Auzentech, Inc. Sound Cards. Audio You Can Believe In. World First soundcards for Music, HTPC, and Gaming.

Some times after boot there are no analog speakers, and no sound. When looking in Auzentech's controls it seems like there is only digital out on the soundcard. I use analog output (5.1). In windows control Panel is also only digital output shown.
I don't know what is triggering this error. Most boots everything is fine, but somethime this occurs.
From time to time, when I have this error, I can start Auzentech controlpanel, and there I choose "restore to default value" for everything. Then the PC is locked for some time, and then the sound comes back.
Is this a driver-problem or a HW-problem?
