cause of problem:
1.the driver is not fit if you use the window xp 64bit. put the dvd or cd to you dvd rom. Use the driver of the motherboard window vista 64bits or 32bits "go to my computer click the dvd rom or drive I or G.
open folder click audio 64bits or 32bits them copy and send to you desktop click the logo of HD audio and wait. if the problem is the same after you install HD audio because your dvd or cd have many scratch. go to the website of the brand of motherboard. Search Ingine google.com "brand of the motherboard space the revision. Example : asrock p4vmm rev.1.1 audio drivers for window 7
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.
This is a known isue and ASUS is working on a sound driver for the chipset. Keep checking their site for driver updates. The board should all install with Windows 7 except for the sound drivers. Some people say they can install the vista driver and run it in vist or xp compatibility mode. The other thing you can do is pick up a cheap $20 Win 7 compliant sound card till the chipset driver issue is resolved.
Those problems are the worst. Make sure your motherboard is set to report all errors.Try disconnecting everything from the motherboard adding them back one at a time. Try just the video card, hard drive and once piece of memory and see if it starts up normally. If you can't find anything there, try running a memory test program. Memtest86 and Windows memory diagnostic (by Microsoft but doesn't need Windows to run it). If it finds errors replace the memory.
