    Hi! Try to get rid of old installation residual files by an acient software that helped me:

    Driver Sweeper 3.2.0

    Or power off/on till it re-appear again (but I prefer first method ^_^ ).

    I am sorry, but I cannot remember now, as I have not owned my M18xR2 for about 2 years or so. It is posted in this thread by me and others which version stopped the problem.

    Just curious, anyone had issue with AMD cards, or only Nvidia?
    I'm selling off the M18x R2 with 7970M CF and while cleaning it up i've realized that no matter what i do the sound never dissapears :O

    You got a good board, the issue exists with both AMD and NVidia cards due to a defective sound chip. You are luck you got a good board, many of them floating out there have flaky sound chips.

    Yes, you are definitely lucky. In the worst case scenario, here is what "not lucky" can look like. Yes, the audio chip amplifier (shown in photo) actually caught on fire. No joke. Motherboard was an in-warranty replacement that died just after the warranty ran out. I got a replacement chip for it and it is still in service. Thankfully, nothing else was harmed other than that one chip. Replacing that amplifier chip that burned didn't correct the problem of random audio loss though. It was "as good as new" with respect to that problem, LOL.
