    Sound card and on board sound


    I just tried to install a sound card (maya 5.1) and after installing it I found that my computer was still running sound through its onboard sound. How can I turn off onboard sound and get it to run through my soundcard? thanx.

    Go into the BIOS and poke around until you find a setting to disable the onboard sound.

    There is also a setting under audio to choose the audio device. Under XP I had a choice of my sound card or the on board sound. Even choosing my sound card here didn't work. I had to disable the onboard sound in the BIOS.
