I've got a P4P800 Deluxe with 2.4C.\n\nI am now using the onboard soundmax and installed the driver from the CD\nprovided.\n\nThe 1st time I installed the soundmax program together with the driver, the\nprogram ran the audio wizards, let me set the speaker and microphone and\ntest them. At first everything was ok, unless the program failed to display\nall chinese characters properly.\n\nHowever, I noticed that when I rebooted the pc, the microphone failed to\nwork, even if I used the audio wizards to set the mic again. It just showed\nno signals from the mic in the audio wizards.\n\nIf i removed the program and the driver, reinstalled, the same situation\nhappened...the 1st time after installation was ok but not after rebooted.\n\nBut I noticed that the microphone works, if I just installed the driver and\nnot the soundmax program. I can test the mic successfully from the windows\nbuilt-in hardware tests.\n\nCan any P4P800 users help me? Do you have similar problem?\n\nI've sent the problem to asus...but no reply is received...so disappointed\nof their service.
