Hi,
I have a built-in soundcard that I think uses multimedia audio controller. A while ago, I installed a new creative soundblaster live! 24-bit into my computer and installed the software. Since then, I think I've deleted the driver for it but I'm not sure. Today, I deleted the multimedia audio controller and restarted the computer. I still have sound but windows prompts me to install mutimedia audio controller, but I want the sound from my soundblaster. How do I configure bios to use my soundblaster and how do I check if the software is installed? Also, is the new soundcard better than a built-in?

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. You need to access your bios and disable the onboard audio. Usually pressing the delete key will get you into the bios (check your system or motherboard manual for specifics on you system). Remove the check mark next to enable onboard audio. Is one better than the other? This is a matter of opinion and we all know everybody has one. Which ever one you like, and does what you want it to do, is best for you.
