    ASUS Sonicmaster Subwoofer not working (not detected ?)


    Hi, I just bought a brand new ASUS N series today, and it came with a sonicmaster subwoofer, which unfortunately doesn't work. Whatever I play it comes out of the regular computer speakers, and I've made sure all the time that the sub was plugged correctly and at the right place (subwoofer jack, just like it says in the manual).

    So what can I do here ?

    Thanks for the help

    I'm having the same trouble in Windows 8 but it works lovely under 7 (I'm dual booting) I think there is a bit of software missing for 8 which I may have just found - will update shortly.

    I received an ASUS driver disk with my laptop - I ran this under win 8 and it immediately didn't want to use it telling me it was for 7 only (which is why I had not tried it earlier). I ran it again under compatibility settings - BE VERY CAREFUL - only select the Audio driver + Sonic Master + Sonic Blast and of course anything you are SURE you want or you will overwrite all your drivers (which in 8 would be a bad idea).

    It works!! and by golly do it sounds grrrrrreeeaaat!! Good luck!
