I'd suggest uninstalling everything, running driver cleaner, kill all registry entries relating to the card, run CCleaner to fix the registry then reinstall the non-Beta drivers....
And while you're doing that, I'm going to go have a good cry in the vain hopes that these issues don't occur on my DX. hehe.

Well I've found a way to fix that problem and it wasn't with the help of ASUS.

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Forum- Xonar DX Vista 32/64 modded drivers

I used a modified version of the Essence STX drivers. They actually registers as Xonar DX when I installed the card. I installed those drivers and now my Xonar DX Media Center works nicely and I have a working mic too! . The microphone strengh also greatly improve, I don't even need microphone gain anymore. Also, the sound is crispier and much cleaner... weird.Now, I need to disable my onboard sound again... I turned them on to see if it was an issue with my onboard, and I wanted to test my microphone if it was defective (response to you, Eagle Eye)

I will continue to test those drivers in games to see if they are stable. Let's say this is a quick fix. I would like to know if someone actually fixed it with the correct drivers from ASUS.

Also, quick question

Which Sample Rate and Channel should I select. I am using a 5.1 Headset and 5.1 Surround Speakers. I don't really know anything about audio so if you could give my some tips at the same that would great.
