    2. I went to ASUS's website got stuck in repeating loop. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

    3. Found an 'auto-update' program from realtek or asus that indicated I had 16 old/broke/conflicting drivers and wanted $30 to fix it. Found free "SlimDrivers" (www.driverupdate.net) indicating I had 17 old/broke/conflicting drivers. Updated all the ones relating to sound etc.
