I had to reinstall my OS tonight. No biggie, took me all of 20 minutes. However, when I reinstalled the ASUS Xonar DX that I have, I used the latest drivers and no matter what I tried, I couldn't get it to stop distorting the sound from the OS or any files I played. Has anyone else for a Xonar DX and installed it differently that perhaps I'm missing something? I'm stumped on this one. I've even updated the firmware on the card itself! The sound card was working fine before I rebuilt the OS.
