  1. my computer is about 5 yrs old. I have an a7v333 asus mother board and it comes with a cmi8738/c3dx on board audio. i am running windows xp and. i recenly put a sound blaster live sound card in my pc. now i have no sound whatsoever. i checked my device manager and it shows both my sound blaster card and my on board audio. i was reading some posts and i saw everyone saying i should disable through my bios. i went into my bios but was unable to find anything that i could disable the onboard audio. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

    check in your mobo manual. It should tell you how to disable the onboard sound.

    As a temporary solution, you can disable the onbard sound via your device manager. Right click on your onboard soundcard, and select disable.
