Hey guys and gals,
I've recently formatted to Windows 7 and everything has been going fine except for my audio card. I am using a Xonar DS PCI card on a conroe kentsfield fsb 1066 motherboard.
Basically, under the Device Manager, the drivers for the card always show the Code 39 error (Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing.)
I have reinstalled and uninstalled several times and have gotten nowhere. I have also experimented a little with trying to use Vista drivers, both with and without compatibility checked for Vista. This issue occurs with both the "Microsoft drivers" the OS provides (Is there any way to turn off this automatic install of their drivers? They're not very good...) and the official Asus drivers.
The only slightly more technical solution I have tried is looking for the Upper and Lower filter registries under the Audio card driver registry entries to delete them, but it does not seem to have any (Solution at: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/code-39-error.htm)
Please please PLEASE, any help would be greatly appreciated. It is not the card, I have tried another very old card (Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit) which gave the same problems, and the card did work on XP not a day before.
