  1. Ok the SoundMax drivers have done nothing as I need to install "HDA audio bus driver" for it to work. Thanks for the reply Andavari, I bought the parts separate and installed them myself from ebuyer and as far as I know I don't have a secondary sound card on my board just the HDA onboard. I can't understand how it happened though because all I did was switch a PSU because the other fried and now I don't have any sound. From everything that I have fiddled with though I think the problem is coming from this "HDA audio bus drivers required and not found".
  2. Hi everyone, this is my first post here as I need help desparately. So where to begin, I logged in to my pc as usual after fitting a new PSU (Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Mobo with Onboard HDA, Nvidia 8800 GTS, 2GB Corsair RAM) and I thought it was a bit wierd but there was no Windows startup jingle so I started up Bioshock and more silence. Very annoyed I exited to desktop and found the SoundMax logo with a "red ring and line through it" saying "No SoundMax audio present. You cannot use SoundMax conrtol panel". I did a system restore..... twice. I have checked Sound and Audio devices but that is all greyed out saying "No playback devices". I have tried to remove SoundMax from "Add and Remove Progams" but I get an error message saying "HDA audio bus driver required and not found". I have checked the services.msc to see if they have been started and yes they have. I have checked "Device Manager" and everything is fine there no yellow question marks, I have even attempted to uninstall the devices but I can't even do that. Now the only 2 things left I can think of doing are downloading the drivers again from Asus which I am in the process of doing now and re-installing Windows which I don't particularly want to do because of all my precious files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
