I bought a Turtle Beach Riviera to replace my onboard sound. I took the green 2.1 speaker cable out of the onboard slot, installed the Riviera card in a free PCI slot, and plugged the speaker cable into the green jack on the Riviera. I installed the drivers, and changed the audio options to have Riviera be my default device. I don't get any sounds, just strange hissing noises when something is trying to play. If i go back to the onboard sound, it's fine again. The first thing I noticed is that I have about 5 copies of 'Legacy Audio Drivers', and I cannot remove them! The option to uninstall these drivers has been disabled. How do I get my sound card to work?

1. start PC in safe mode, deinstall Riviera 2. reboot and b4 you get into Windows 3. go into bios, disable onboard sound 4. install Riviera
I already turned off onboard sound in the BIOS...
maybe just a dud card?
Maybe the soundcard is configured with that port in some digital mode. Go into the sound properties and verify the card is in the correct mode.
