My System Specs


Are you absolutely sure that your on-board audio is turned off in bios?

How about un-installing the on-board drivers? Maybe they're doing something funky in the background that the Xonar doesn't like.

Have you tried resetting the resource allocation in bios? Could be the on-board is assigned an IRQ that the Xonar needs and it hasn't been released by the on-board even when the on-board is disabled.

Could be any # of things, so perhaps if you listed what you have already tried we can spot something you missed.

It is also possible that the Xonar drivers use an undocumented hardware feature of intel chips which isn't included in AMD chips, but it's been a long time since I saw something like that.... (trying to rip mp3s with my K6 took almost an hour per song while using a similar intel chip was only 5 minutes).
