M2N SLI deluxe audio driver for windows 7

I've looked at the asus website and they don't have an audio driver out yet for windows 7. I have tried using the windows xp and vista one just to see if those would work. Neither did.

The problem I am having though, is that I can only use my Left and Right front speakers, I can't use my C-Sub or rear speakers at all. When I run the windows 7 sound wizard or whatever I can click to test the speakers and I hear the sound coming from them so I know that they are working but nothing else will play on those speakers.

Currently I have uninstalled all of the asus audio drivers so I'm just running whatever came with windows 7 ultimate.

Actually, one thing does play sound, my AIM log off and log on sounds play on my C-Sub jack. But thats it...

Have you tried googling to see if anyone else has released drivers for W7? I kind of doubt it, but possible.

I had a problem similar to this where my audio drivers crashed, eliminating all subwoofer frequencies. It took me a long while to figure out that the drivers and software package had to be completely reinstalled in order to fix it. It happened one more time, but I have yet to see it fail after that.

OK i figured it out, finally found what I needed after lots of googling.

If you're using Vista or Win7, here's what you need to do:

Open your control panel and go to "sound"

In the "playback" tab select your speakers and click the "properties" button.

In the speaker properties dialog open the "enhancements tab". Check "Speaker Fill". This creates a virtual environment for stereo audio sources to play through surround sound.

NOTE: you may need to close and restart iTunes if you have it open.
