Ok, I've recently upgraded my sound to a sound card instead of the Realtek AC '97 onboard stuff on my motherboard (MSI K9N4 SLI-F). I upgraded b/c I was having issues with people and sounds altering periodically (I play WoW religiously and use Ventrilo. Vocals from Vent were getting erratic, in that they'd swap channels periodically or they'd become lower or higher than norm w/out reason). I purchased a Sound Blaster Audigy SE sound card along with another video card (same exact card that I'm already running, now running SLi). After installing both cards, I started to experience issues with video. After doing the trial-and-error thing, I found out that the drivers from the onboard sound and the new sound card were the culprits. I disabled the onboard sound in BIOS and got the latest-&-greatest from Creative Labs and things worked fine. Because of disabling the onboard sound, I disconnected the front I/O jumpers from the mobo and just used some Y-connectors to put my headset and speaker connections into the sound card. Problem with that was that I was having issues with sound quality, so I decided to put the jumpers back on the mobo. There are multiple jumpers for my front I/O (on a Cooler Master CM690 case): one for AC '97, one for Audio HD and then separate jumpers for each wire. I tried both the one for AC '97 and Audio HD to no avail. The onboard audio is still disabled. The first thing you'd think to do would be to re-enable the onboard audio thru BIOS, but I don't want to run into the driver conflictions that I had previously. Am I going about things the wrong way or are there issues that I'm not thinking of?
