Hi, i have two soundcards on one pc
one is a onboard and the other is
a SB Live 1024
I have just bought some nifty piece of kit a 5.1 speaker set all but the 2 front speakers work because the jack port the 2 fronts are in musnt be a proper sound one so i thought of putting the 2 fronts into the onboard but i cant get them both run at the same time is this possible?

to get the 5.1 speakers to work you need a card capable of doing it. you can only have one sound source too.

you can't get both runnung at the same time. Diasable the onboard sound card through the bios first and then reinstall the new sound card and I think everything shoud work properly.

Also as ~wave~ says. Is the 1024 a 5.1 card? You need a 5.1 card to play 5.1 sound.
