    Sorry for the double post.. but just to make sure you see this (as i gotta run for now)

    In addition to attempting to download from a different ASUS download server (when you click their download icon such as Global vs. China choose a different one then last time)

    You might also open Device Manager, select the sound card (it might now be listed under "Other" or Unknown) then rt click to select Update Driver. See if Windows can find a driver for it.

    Based on my google, the problem might be file corruption from ASUS? i dunno. Have you also tried running any other .exe file to see if other .exe files work?

    Am sure Mailpup or I or someone will be checking back in with you on the thread. Gotta go now

    FYI - it's not an .exe file issue for I ran something tonight for something else and it worked fine.

    Tried to download from another "area" on the asus site - instead of global went to china. Still the same problem........*sigh*

    To clarify, what are the names of the final three files you are trying to execute? I just want to make sure you ended up with the correct ones. Also, did you ever install the other drivers from the Asus website?

    Wow. Amazing!! I found people have been downloading this 3 part driver from ASUS and complaining about this exact same crash problem since 2006!!

    Try this driver version instead. Unzip it and then run the Setup.exe file

    You'd think they would have corrected it by now. Evidently not.

    great if it works, i think i just updated windows with sp2 & re-installed the driver & it worked.

    cheers!

    Yea. I couldn;t even guess why Asus would leave a driver problem like this on their web site for years!
