The audio on my Asus P5E3 DELUXE/WiFi-AP motherboard does not appear to work. Windows 7 says that there is no audio output device installed. As such, when I plug my speakers in I get no sound and the sound icon in the notification area continues to display a red circle with an "x". The High Definition Audio Controller is installed under Device Manager and appears to be normal. However, it is listed under System Devices. There is no listing for Sound, Video, & Game Controllers (I am not sure if this is applicable to Win7). I have disabled and re-enabled the audio controller. I have uninstalled it and let Windows reinstall it. All to no avail. For what it's worth, the controller appears to be using a standard Microsoft driver. System info says that no sound devices are installed. I have verified (multiple times) that onboard audio is enabled in the BIOS. I have tried disabling the audio in the BIOS, booting, into Windows shutting down, and then re-enabling the onboard audio. No go. I have attempted to reinstall the Soundmax drivers from ASUS. They don't install. I receive an error message saying that the audio driver files do not support my hardware. I am sure that I am trying to install the correct drivers. There is no software installed that would be interfering with the audio and all services look normal. Any ideas?
