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 !
