Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Installed a new Sound Card which does not work.

\015 Hello.My system runs XP with service pack three installed and all updates installed automatically.I bought a C-Media PCI Audio Sound Card because I cannot use my 'Screen Recorder' sofware without a sound card. TechSmith Screen Recorder software.I have a Gigabyte motherboard with RealTek High Definition Audio software installed. This is running on the motherboard.When I install the new sound card it does not work. The Device Manager sees it and says it is working properly. It also sees the RealTek onboard software and says that it is working also.When I plug the speakers into the jacks for the motherboard the speakers work. The ReakTek demo track works fine as it always has.When I plug the speakers into the jack on the new sound card nothing happens. The C-Media Demo track does not work.Can anyone give me advice on this. I have never used a sound card before and am a novice in this area. It seems like part of the system sees the sound card and other parts of the system don't.Look forward to your help.RegardsMike Woods (Taiwan Guy)\015

Answers :

Boot up while pressing and hold del to enter board setup, disable onboard audio in the settings menu. Exit and save.

Start windows, goto system settings, device options, and enable the new card if need be and update drivers if nessary. You can run multiple sound devices, but if similar you may be experiencing hardware conflicts, so disabling the onboard as described should do the trick.
I think it will only run 1 card at a time so you will need to disable or uninstall the reaktek?
