Weird issues with soundcard?


Well-known Member
i have an asus p5w dh deluxe mobo with realtek onboard sound running vista home premium. now, my problem is every so often the pc will boot and not see the soundcard so no audio - i have to reinstall drivers and reboot for it to work? any ideas why this is happening?
So, i was thinking of buying a new, dedicated PCI soundcard - any suggestions on what to buy? Don't want to spend a great deal and how much of an improvement would it make?
Also, i am planning on upgrading to windows 7 soon so would want to buy something that will work/make the most of that as well - maybe a new graphics card with HDMI audio/video which will work with vista as well?
