M-Audio Radium 49 USB Midi Controller won't work with new computer

I own an M-Audio Radium 49 midi controller. I use it to make music with Cubase. I bought it about 5 years ago and I still have the original cd with the driver, but since purchasing the Radium 49 I have downloaded and installed updated versions of the driver several times. All was okay until...

Recently I got a whole new computer - new motherboard, new processor, new memory, new hard drives, new everything. I made a clean installation of Windows XP Pro (SP3) and started installing software and drivers. I downloaded the latest driver for the Radium 49 from the M-Audio website here.

I installed the driver and then plugged in the Radium. I got an error. there may have been a malfunction message. Needless to say, the Radium won't work. It lights up and everything, but Cubase doesn't get any signal.

I then uninstalled the driver and tried re-installing it again. But that didn't help.

Then I tried to install the driver from the original CD that came with the Radium49. That didn't help either.

The last thing I tried was to install the latest driver (downloaded from M-audio website) on a different computer with the same OS and everything went fine. Driver installed okay, plugged in Radium and no error messages. (Cubase not installed on the 2nd computer, so I didn't try any practical tests).

Therefor, I have a feeling it has something to do with the new computer.

Here are the specs:

> Mainboard : Asus P5Q-PRO
> Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2400 MHz
> Physical Memory : 4096 MB (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM )
> Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT

The other computer, on which everything worked well, is an HP Pavillion DV4000 laptop which runs Windows XP Home, SP3.

Researching through the web I found some other similar cases. The one case I found most relevant had to do with a possible conflict between the onboard soundcard and the M-audio driver. It also said something about IRQ's which I know nothing about. The discussion is here

Can someone p-l-e-a-s-e help me out with this? :)
