I have just installed a Cmedia sound card as the one thats on the motherboard was not working as it is a ALC888 conexant drivers but the realtek would not come in the sound card was blank. Do i have to disable the motherboard card for my Cmedia to work & how do i do this please .
click my computer
click control panel
click the hardware tab
click the device manager bar
look on the list for sound, video game controllers
now you should see a list, find the device on the list
point at the device you want to disable
right click the device
left click on properties
look for: Device usage, drop the menu down by clicking the arrow
select: Do not use this device (disable), click it so that it is blue
close all the windows and restart the computer
your device should be disabled now.
Install your software, ignore the windows installer wizard. You may need to un-install your software first, then reinstall it.
