Boot the PC and keep tapping the delete key until it enters set up, look through the settings to disable onboard sound, press F10 to save, type Y to confirm then press enter

Some soundcard drivers disable the onboard sound when you install them

Still nothing, am I just screwed?

I was tinkering with TuneUp thing you gave me, and it showed me a link to 64bit XP, which is surprising, cause I have a 64bit asus card, but haven't found anything that was 64 bit compatable :blink: . If I install it, do I have to reformat all over again, or just partition my hard drive? Cause I only have one.. Do I need 2, or can I divide my only one.. :whistling:

Also any more advice on my sound card would be appreciated, thanks for all the help so far though.

It extracts everything, gives you the warning for no background applications, and then wants to go to the install menu, but says it doesnt find a supported product on my computer.. It did this before, till someone here gave me a link to a driver that I already had. I installed the driver I downloaded from the link, and it worked..? Couldn't tell you how, but it installed, and worked, but then I ran into the problem we just fixed...

It's a process of elimination at the moment, if you have the correct drivers and all the other files are there, it should work now

The x64 question doesn't apply to your PC
