Have you visited the support web page for that motherboard and checked that the board is really compatible with Windows 7 64-bit, and that 64-bit drivers are available for the audio chipset?

You didn't install 32-bit drivers by mistake?

Have you downloaded the latest BIOS (version P08, it looks like?)

well, XFX doesn't really have a compatibility list, but since the board's compatible with Vista, one supposes. I did indeed install 64-bit sound drivers, thinking about trying the 32-bit ones to see if it makes a difference. I flashed the BIOS about two weeks ago to p08, thinking about going back to p07 just to see if that helps.

thanks for your feedback!

I discovered what the problem was, I had a Linksys wmp-300n and it was accessing the same resources as the sound card. NOT crazy.

apparently it does it all the time to a crazy amount of boards.
