Morning

I have a pc with on board sound. Can I bypass this and install a decent sound card? How?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

You need to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard sound (press DEL at startup).

Then shutdown and install the sound card as per instructions.

"You need to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard sound (press DEL at startup)."

I didn't know this.

I just put in a new sound card and it works fine. I have done the same on both computers

If you don't disable the onboard sound you can/could get two lots of sound...:-)
