Laptop Soundcard

I use a midi sequencer program and a creative soundblaster soundcard to write my own songs on my PC
My children have now taken over the PC each night for homework so I have treated myself to a high spec laptop, ( dont have the space for another PC) a HP Pavilion DV6116eu thinking that the soundcard (a Conexant high definition audio) would be even better, but it seems I was wrong.
The sounds in the sequencer are very synthesised nothing like the quality of the soundblaster card, so my question is can I replace the card in the laptop for a soundblaster or something simular or is there another laptop that comes with an appropiate card, (I have another 7 days to take the HP laptop back) .

Thanks Pittza.

External Sound Card but they are expensive. Personally for Audio reasons then consider one of these cube systems maybe quarter of the size of a tower.

whoop,s LAN issue hang again.

You will find that Creative's Soundblaster range of sound cards are generally regarded as the best on the market and it comes as no surprise to me that you are dissapointed with the comparison of your Conexant high definition audio.

You can buy this click here for your laptop but make sure it has a free PCMCIA slot

Hi [email protected] I have no pcmcia slot, do you know where i can get a pcmcia to usb adapter?

I seem to remember seeing an External USB Sound Card being given a good write-up somewhere.

A PCMCIA to USB adapter wouldn't be what you want (I don't think they exist). You should have a look at Creative's external range of sound cards that connect via USB such as this click here
