My computer has onboard sound and video graphics and I have purchased both a video card and Sound Blaster. I've installed the video card already and disabled the onboard video via the bios. I'm wondering if I need to do something similar to disable the onboard sound before installing Sound Blaster. If so, I'm not sure what to look for in bios in order to disable it. I've perused the different settings in bios to see if I could spot the obvious and didn't see anything that had to do with disabling the onboard audio. Do I actually need to do that, or do I just install the sound card and run the installation CD?

Thanks,

Greg

Most boards disable the on-board audio when they see a separate card. It wouldn't hurt anything though if both were running together.
