    Good day , All ... hope everyone is looking good , anyway i need a professional help about my Soundcard.. just recently i bought a new computer ( not really a flashy one ) with onboard soundcard. then a couple of days ago .. i bought a new Creative LIve sound card and installed it. but for some reason it looks like the motherboard doesn't detect it. Do i need to disable the onboard soundcard? so the new soundcard can be detected ? and please how can i do that ?
    thanks in advance people ... any help will be highly appreciated.
    cheers !

    Assuming that you have installed the driver for the card, and made a restart, check out the device manager, and see if it is enabled. Also check that there are no conflicts on the resources tab.

    The device manager is opened by,

    right click on My computer, select Properties
    select Hardware then select Device manager
    double click on Sound,video and game controllers
    double click on Creative SB live series
    Then look through the tabs for info.
