Question about Compaq Motherboards
Have new Creative sound blaster 5.1 digital audio card SB0220 and attempting to install on Compaq Presario 7471 UK Desktop PC ...when I look at Product Specifications on HP it has the following spec...and says it is Soundblaster compatible...is there a jumper to shutoff onboard audio before is recognized the new card that is installed???
Audio Audio Chipset ESS Allegro with Integrated hi-fi AC'97 codec Audio Data Width 16-Bit DirectSound Support Multi-stream DirectSound and DirectSound 3D acceleration 3D Sound support HRTF 3-D positional audio Sensaura CRL Positional 3D Dolby Digital Surround Sound (AC3) JBL 3D Virtual Theater (VMAx) Voices 32 Soundblaster Compatability Yes FM Synthesis Yes User Controllable Functions Vol Up/Vol Down/Mute
Well in your bios there should be a option to turn the onboard card off but if not you might have to flash the bios. if its a newer pc check the bios there should be a option for audio or you might only have the option to boot the pci slot first. if you dont have either of these let me know and i can help with a bios flash.
