Problem With ASUS Xonar DS PCI 7.1 Audio Card

I have Slackware 14.1, 64-bit, with KDE 4.10.5. The audio card installed is ASUS Xonar DS PCI 7.1. (The onboard audio chip is disabled in the BIOS.)

Occasionally my audio card does not work and I get the following notification:
Multimedia System
The audio playback device Xonar DS, Multichannel (Default Audio Device) does not work. Falling back to HDA NVidia, HDMI 0 (HDMI Audio Output).
As I said above, sometimes the Xonar DS audio card works, and sometimes it does not. I have no idea why!

What can I do to fix this problem once and for all?

PS: I should add that I also have Ubuntu and Linux Mint Debian Edition installed on the same PC and the Xonar DS card works flawlessly every time with these two operating systems.
