I recently upgraded to this graphic card which worked great, but I lost my on-board (Realtek) audio. I tried disabling the ATI audio drivers that loaded with the new GC drivers, and reloaded the Realtek drivers, but they would not show up in XP with the card installed. What is my best option to restore audio with this graphics card?

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, when the Radeon card is installed, there is no Realtek audio device shown anywhere in Windows. Once the new card is installed only the ATI HD audio shows, but I can't seem to get any signal out to the speakers. If I remove the card and restart, audio works fine.... There seems to be a compatibility issue between the Realtek audio and this type of Radeon card. (??)

After swapping the card in and out a few times and rechecking the BIOS setting I noticed the Integrated audio was getting disabled each time the extra graphics card was detected. Problem fixed... the BIOS integrated audio setting was disabled. (Duh... :o )
