A friend of mine has a Gateway computer. He says it has integrated sound and video, but wishes to upgrade to a 32MD Radeon card and a Sound Blaster sound card. He has contacted Gateway, and was told there is no way to disable the integrated components. I have not seen his computer nor do I have any information as to what model it is, but I have never heard of this problem before. Has anyone else had to deal with this, and if so what can be done? Thanks for any help you can offer.
