You could always try reading the manual that came with your cards ;-)

Plug the sound card into a PCI slot. Boot up the computer and have the driver disk in the cdrom. Point windows to the cdrom for drivers.

If the sound card does not work, then you may have to disable the on-board sound in the bios.

To help you with that, we would need to know your motherboard make and model.

First, ensure that you have the correct audio devices in Multimedia by following the below steps:

1. Click Start / Settings / Control Panel double-click the multimedia icon.
2. Verify that the playback device is set to the audio device in the computer.

Second, verify that your sound card has the latest drivers and/or updates installed .

If you are planning on purchasing a new sound card and have on-board audio it is highly recommended that you disable the on-board audio before installing the new sound card. Below is the two methods that an on-board can be disabled.

1. The majority of all on-board sound cards can be enabled or disabled within CMOS. Additional information on how to get into CMOS can be found on click here.

2. If your computer does not have an option within CMOS to disable the on-board audio it is likely that either the motherboard has a jumper which can be set to disable the on-board audio, or the on-board audio will disable automatically when the new sound card is installed into the computer. Please refer to the motherboard manual or contact your computer or motherboard manufacturer for additional information.
