    Happy New Year!

    Hello I am looking to disable my onboard sound. What I would like to do is install my WIN TV/FM card and also my new sound card. I know that I first have to disable the onboard sound and possibly something more or I will get freeze-ups. Does anyone know exactly what I should do?

    My Info:
    (link to the motherboard I have)
    http://www.epox.com/html/english/products/motherboard/ep-7kxa.htm


    AMD Athlon 600Mhz Processor
    448MB Ram
    Windows ME

    All help is appreciated. Thank You in advance.

    According to your manual it's under Intergrated Pheripials
    Two items

    legacy sound
    Soundblaster compatible

    Try disabling both and rebooting
    Check under add remove programs for any sound related drivers etc, remove those also.

    If it's still not gone go into device manager and under sound select properties and disable in this hard ware profile.

    Along with deleting the drivers, check your manual for jumper settings that you should change. I couldn't see any on your website. Your BIOS settings will have to be looked at also.

    Ok I will check all that. Thanks. I don't have a manual so I will download the one online and see what they have to say about jumper settings if any apply.
