install new sound card Tags: Sound Cards Motherboards Components Last response: March 11, 2001 4:47 AM in Components Share Anonymous a b V Motherboard March 10, 2001 4:19:51 PM I am trying to install a new sound card, but the old card is hard wired in the motherboard. How do I disable the old card? More about : install sound card amdchuck March 11, 2001 4:47:59 AM I am assuming by hardwired you mean it is a sound chip built into the mobo. If so, remove all support for the device from the O/S then restart the pc and go into the systems setup program (BIOS) disable all on board Audio/AC97/Gameport entries then reboot O/S. Should not detect any onboard audio or gameport or install any software support. Then install sound card according to instructions. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
