I am having the same problem.. I have spent over 9.5 hr.s on phone with
microsoft and still no go.. all the test are good to go but the soundmax
one.. I have to say this is nuts.. Good grief what a pain.. my video
card is fine on test too.. Vista Ultimate is about to go back to the
store at 400.00 a pop I would think it would run better then this.. I
was hoping to get all the use of my ram.. Just built this system for my
birthday end of Dec. waiting on Conan to come out want to use all my ram
and dirext x10 dang..
