View Full Version : Xonar Phoebus not starting on initial boot.

08-09-2012, 11:23 PM
I bought a Xonar Phoebus sound card recently, and I have had to install it on the bottom PCIe x16 slot due to there being no where else I can fit it with the gigantic GTX670 phantom on the top slot in the way (Asrock z68 Extreme3 Gen3).

The problem I am facing now is that on initial startup of my PC my sound card doesn't turn on/isn't detected by Window 7 at all, but after restarting the pc through the OS it will click on and start running.

I bought all this stuff recently so I'm hoping it's not faulty hardware..

Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this?

I have this problem too actually. I'm just hoping the driver update is not too far off

Fill out a bug report form and send it to the email address shown in the bug report form sticky thread.

Make sure you are running a fresh install of the operating system. It is up to Windows 7 to load drivers for the device so it sounds like you guys have some kind of conflict.
