Hi, I need your help:

Sound Card: I have like a Sound Blaster PCI 128 or something, which I wanna pop into my newly built system, but I dont have a box or CD or anything, so can I disable my onboard sound, put this sound card in, and will windows detect the drivers and stuff by itself?

Mouse: I have a Microsoft Optical mouse, again, lost box, CD, etc, I rememeber I installed some sort of software for the mouse, to control acceleration rates and stuff...any way to get that?

Hard Drive: Same case, no box etc, can I take the hard drive, set the jumper as Slave and plug it into the slave part of the wire from my main HD, and then will I be able to work with teh files in tehre, or do I have to format and stuff? Can I just pop it in? Also, no OS conflicts, right?

Sound card: Should work as you have outlined. Windows may or may not have the right drivers. You should get the updated drivers from the Creative site anyway.

Mouse: You may not need anything additional. Again you probably can get needed drivers or utilities from the web.

Hard drive: Should be fine. Just remember to set the other drive to master. What is the OS on both systems?

You may have to go into BIOS and disable it or change jumpers on the MB. Do you still have your manual? If not what is the make and model of your system or motherboard?

The onboard sound on your motherboard is about 1000 times better then your sound card.
