I bought an MSI K9A2GM

I had problems in Vista x64 with the onboard audio, namely even though I installed the drivers manually and it registered correctly on rebooting the system; later on it will randomly loose them. What happens is I'll reboot, normally Windows would play audio during this process, nada. Then when I do enter into Windows I see the New Hardware Found icon in the system tray and it begins reinstalling the RealTek audio drivers I'd already had?!

It's done this abunch of times but not just in Vista x64, in XP x32! I was amazed when I saw the same thing happening to the audio on XP, I couldn't fathom what would cause Windows to randomly reinstall audio drivers as if they'd never been installed.

Could this be damage to the onboard audio chipset? Pretty strange if it is since the audio does work once it's been installed. But the problem is whenever it does this all the settings are lost so I need to change all the volume controls again.

It's really very weird and I'm torn between thinking the mobo is the culprit to some unknown factor with the software.

Help!

What's even more bizarre is that it's totally random, it just happens or doesn't. There's no real way of causing it to occur!
