I've had this board for about a month, about every other time I reboot the audio is not found and I have to re-install drivers to get any sound at all. If I do not restart for several days, eventually the host process will shut down and then boom no sound, no available mixer devices, re-install. I'd love to know what to do next, I'm running XP Home, tragically, and failure is not dependent on any particular application being up.

Asus website has drivers up to Windows Vista(may work for Windows 7): http://asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=St3pWpym8xXpROQS&content=download for audio install audio driver and stereomix function you probably can find in Manual
You need thhe Microsoft UAA driver Download them for your O/S Uninstall any sound drivers then install the UAA drivers and reboot
If you have sound driver disk install drivers from it If not go to Device Manager and right click sound driver and Update it . it will go on net and find and install them When done give me a fixya please
Download the attachment I found, unpack it into your folder of choice. Then move over to the control panel and select that "PCI Device". Rightclick and install the audio bus drivers I provided for the PCI Device. During installation Windows should find something like Microsoft UAA Bus driver, I don't know the exact name. Do a restart after installation and everything should work fine.
Asus does have Updated software for, Realtek ALC883 Audio Driver V220.127.116.1104 for Windows 2000/XP & 64bit XP (WHQL).
There is also an update for the Bios which includes an Update Realtek PXE ROM to V2.08 dated 2007/12/4. To look at these updates & others click the link below. The link will open to your board with Linux opened. Just click, Latest or All at the top of the window. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2A-VM&type=map&mapindex=7
If the updates do not help remember your board is warranted for three years through Asus. You can call Asus Tech at: 812-282-2787. IL EST. It sounds to me that the onboard audio chip is going. I checked all FAQ's & found no complaints about the onboard sound.
Hope this helps & leads to a fix..
please vote... Luck!
