Soundmax HD audio Output problem

The details are very lengthy but please read it completely.Just gave you all the information i know.

I have a Asus M2n-mx motherboard,Amd athlon X2 3800+.The motherboard is having a integrated Soundmax HD audio.The problem is that, I will lose the audio output just after 5 to 10min of booting my system.Ofcourse the time may vary.Its very random.If it doesnt work at all, i would have changed the chipset long back but it will work very fine some times.Once i loose the output, i should restart the system to get it back.Some times it says that "no soundmax hd audio is present". I was very frustrated and i bought a Soundblaster sound card.This worked fine for 1 year but stopped working immediately after the warranty period is finished. So again i tried if my old integrated audio is working.I installed the audio drivers and it worked flawlessly for nearly 3 months. I dont know why. Again the same problem started. I tried removing the Hardware acceleration but no use.I tried all the hotfixes from microsoft but invain.There is no specific program which makes it stop working.It may stop when listening to music or playing game or watching a movie.Its the same for Vista.I will get a disturbance in my headphones or speakers just a second befor its going to stop.I dont know how it worked without any problem for 3 months.Please any one figure out the problem.

SOURCE: driver of soundmax onboard in Win7

Win7 is a recently dev version of windows. i don't think that the manufactures has begin writing the drivers for their products. see in the manufactures website if they have provided the drivers or else you cannot install the drivers. even if you some how install the drivers, the product cannot offer full efficiency.

Have windows 7 64 w/soundmax integrated HD audio. What benefit is ASUS driver ?

You mean add-on ASUS sound card?
You will get better sound and maybe ASIO driver support.
On board HD audio requires more CPU cycles and does not support low latency ASIO drivers.

Can't configure audio on my new Asus P5QL motherboard

There should've been something on your ASUS CD that included the SoundMax driver. Without that you won't get audio. You might need to reinstall your CD again making sure you have installed the Soundmax driver. If you can't find it, look for Soundmax on the Internet. If the Soundmax card is properly installed you will see a little blue square on your bottom right task bar. If you click on the little arrow, you can adjust the sound volume. It also contains a wizard to help you diagnose problems.

Oh, you will need to make sure your virus programs are turned off before installing that program as well.

Spdif not working

WHAT IS SPDIF? NEVER HEARD OF IT! Please, do not asume of any problems and next, please do not tamper withthe mother board. I go through many mother boards every day that have been tampered with... The information you have given me is not enough to draw conclusions on. We need the computer maker's name, model number. The ASUS number that you have given me is either incorrect or incomplete. ASUS prints their model, number in a place that is difficult to find it and become a screwdriver mechanic. Please look in between the PCI sockets on the bottom of the MB. The PCI sockets are those sockets that are white in color. There may be two, three or four. In between these sockets, you will find the motherboard number, as well as other information at times (serial number and version). The version also appears on the left top or left bottom, on the screen during the start up cycle. Once we have that info. we will begin checking the easy things first and gradually to the more advanced. Please, do not tamper with the MB. We appreciate your consideration of our service. Please return with the info. we get graded that way...

Asus m2n E Sli board audio

I had the same problem, and it went away when I connected the the front speakers via the 'ac97' connector from the case, instead of the HD audio connector. It seems using the HD audio connector, as well as using no connector and forgetting to put back the jumpers originally set over 2 of the front audio connectors pins, will cause no audio from the back ports.
