Installing audio card on ASUS A7N8X-E motherboard

  1. Hi all,
    My home built PC consists of ASUS A7N8X-E deluxe MoBo which has an onboard audio:MCP-T southbridge integrated audio processor unit, Realtek ALC650 6-Channel Codec. My OS: Win XP, SP2. I am going to install a PCI audio card on this MoBo. Do I need to disable the onboard audio first? And if yes, then is it done thru BIOS? ASUS manual does not say anything about disabling audio.
    Any help is very much appreciated.

    Yeah, in the BIOS {in Integrated Peripherals - from memory} there'll be Onboard Audio, or something similar - AC97 perhaps.

    It only has 2 settings, enable or disable. Disable it when u use a soundcard, or audio will go to Onboard, and not your nice, new Card!

    Thanks very much for the info. I did look around BIOS & that's were you can disable the onboard audio.
