Asus Xonar Essence STX causing boot problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

i have a 2500k w/ sli 780's on a Z68xud3h b3 f12 Bios  win 7 ult 64bit

I just purchased a Xonar Stx and installed it right between the 2 cards on the PCI-E. Problem is the computer can't even get to the windows loading screen and just keeps rebooting itself. I then tried just using one of my 780 on the bottom PCI-E (x8) and put my stx on the top PCI-E(x16) and it works but then ic an't use SLI.

I've tried

-disabling the onboard audio
-uninstalled Real-tek/ Nvidia HD audio Drivers / driver sweeper
-also on board video settings to "Enable if no Peg" and initial display to PCI-Ex16

ANY help appreciated can't get this work and its driving me crazy

You could try clearing the BIOS. (usually it's jumper near the BIOS chip).

With the computer turned off, remove the "BIOS" jumper and unplug the computer from the wall power socket for 30 seconds, then plug power cable back on and put jumper back in place.

When you boot the computer, you need to go back into the BIOS (delete key) and reset all the BIOS settings.

Then try installing the STX with both video cards installed. (might try using the "Unifed Xonar Drivers")

 

If that does not work, you might consider returning the STX and get the Xonar D1 (PCI, used $60) and an external head amp like the Schiit Magni.

I would assume using a sound card in the PCI slot would work.

i was tinking w/ the On board video settings and in the end had to remove the Mother battery which i guess "reset" the bios settings and the same thing happened. I brought it back to place that i brought it from to get it tested and the card is running fine no problem..

Edit, had to reread this post.

Did not think there was a problem with card as it worked in 16X slot.

I would assume you would have both video card and STX installed in slots, when reinstalling windows.
