A bizarre problem here, I have soundblaster audigy 2 zs installed. I cannot disable my onboard sound, if I do my comp randomly crashes when playing most games , especially BF2. I reset the bios and its ok again? So basically I have to have onbaord sound enabled for games to work without crashing, any ideas , some times get the blue screen of death with this error NV4_disp.dll which i belive is my grafix drivers. cheers

Download the latest drivers for both cards from Nvidia / Creative websites. Save them on your hard drive somewhere. From Add/Remove programs uninstall the current drivers for both soundcard and graphics card. Then in device manager uninstall both sound card and graphics card. Reboot the pc, enter bios and disable onboard sound. Save and exit, and as the pc continues to boot it will detect both cards as new hardware and start the new hardware wizard. Use this to install the drivers you downloaded to your hdd.
If this makes no difference, check that Asus hasn't made available any updated mobo chipset drivers, or that you don't need a bios flash. (be very careful with these; make sure you're checking against the correct mobo model / version)
I have the 91.31 drivers installed, as for the audigy i used creatives autoupdate to get the lastest. I will try out your 1st solution as that seems a good area to start, I may think thats its my mobo, as I had to flash it with the latest update for it to post with my fx 60.
