I just pulled out the motherboard out of an old HP m1050y and there was a black cover that said "Do not remove" on the I/O covering up onboard audio ports (I had to remove it to get the motherboard out). Why would they do that? There was an audigy sound card in a PCI slot.
Do you think these ports work? Was the cover to prevent users from plugging in audio into two different places? Why even add a PCI sound card if there was already onboard audio?
Any idea how I could find the driver for the onboard audio? It's currently not working and the original pci sound card has been removed. Hp is not helpful because that onboard Audio was never meant to be used and I can't find anything on google.
Looks like there is a driver conflict issue. If I delete the conflict, it auto reinstalls. if I delete both of the duplicate entries they will both reinstall. Very Strange, no idea what is going on but, I still have no audio (other than the from headphone jack which is working perfectly).
