I have been using onboard sound (AC97) for a few months without a problem.
Yesterday, I picked up a sound card and installed it, wanting to have both
the onboard and the sound card work at the same time. I'm currently doing
this type of thing on another PC I have.
However, when I install the PCI card, my onboard sound is no longer
accessible, even though its still listed as Enabled in the BIOS. When I
remove/uninstall the PCI card, the onboard shows up again and works again.
It seems that I can only have 1 sound source on my PC! However, I have both
of them setup fine on my other PC.
Both PCs are running WinXP Pro with SP2 and all major updates done.
The PC with the problem is:
1024 PC3200 ram
Asus K8VSE Delux motherboard
the new PCI card being installed is a C-Media card, very basic.
I have searched all over and cannot find a way to get it to work. Is there
some sort of flag/setting I need to do to allow me to use two sound sources
Many many thanks!
