To answer your other question... yes every thing else has been done. I always keep my bios Internal Realtek audio disabled. And everything seemed to have installed the right path. As for Device Manager......After i installed your PAX drivers the first time(Not now, Still awaiting on your response to troubleshoot) I noticed only "High Definition Audio Driver" in sound devices. when i have installed this Card in the past with Creative's drivers, It always showed Sound Blaster x-fi. And of course all associated software like the Console Launcher and everything opened up fine.
