SoundMax sound works until reboot

I am having an issue with a HP dc5000.  It uses the soundmax drivers.  The sound on this PC just stopped working.  The user was using the internal speaker only so I thought maybe that speaker just died or something.  Anyway after troubleshooting some I decided to reinstall the soundmax drivers, the driver installation asks you to reboot after the install.  When the PC shut down to reboot I heard the windows xp shut down sound so I figured the driver reinstallation fixed it.  However when the pc came back up I had no sound again.  So I did the driver reinstall again, this time I chose to restart later, and sure enough the sound worked again.  So I can reproduce this issue every time.  If I reinstall the sound drivers the sound works, if I reboot the pc the sound stops works, if I reinstall the drivers the sound works again.  So any ideas?

Sounds like a resource conflict.  Go into Device Manager and uninstall the sound card, all parts of it.  Reboot and let it reinstall.  If it still does it, check for resource conflicts between the card and some other device.

This issue is like with that you do not have the latest updated driver. Hence I would suggest that you donload the latest driver and check if this problem resolves.

once you go to the site download the driver and install the software and check.

Good Luck

I defiantly have the latest driver, I went to HP to download the drivers when I reinstalled them.

Try going to Asus' website (www.asus.com) and downloading the sound drivers for the M2N-SLI.  That might clear it up too.
