Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

I am running a dual boot system. My Linux can only tolerate the audio system on the mother board. My windows XP is on the advanced sound system which is a Soundblaster Live (WDM) which works fine. But I am getting tired of moving my speaker plugs between the two systems. How can I turn my built in sound system on for windows???


Answers :

Hi,\015\012 There are two ways to do the same.\015\012One way is : open the computer cover and remove the expansion card( sound card ) from the system and the audio would default to intergrated audio\015\012
\015\012second way is \015\012Click on start>click run> type devmgmt.msc>\015\012the device manager window would appear\015\012go to the option that says sound audio and game controllers, disable the soundblaster by right clicking on the same.\015\012
