How to off motherboard speaker and enable Creative Soundblaster
Not knowing your expertise on computers I will try to keep this generalized. You must disable the on board sound of the main board. To do this you must gain access to the bios of your computer. This is usually done by hitting a key at boot up. Usually this key is the delete key "DEL", but sometimes is a function key like F2. It is usually advertised at boot up what key to hit to gain access to the bios setup screen. Once you gain access to the bios screen you should be able to disable the on board sound. If that doesn't fix the problem, you may have a driver problem in windows. Try going into the device manager of windows and uninstalling the driver associated with the sound card, and then reinstall it with the supplied disc that came with the sound card. Expert tip: The drive that usually ships with hardware is not the latest driver, go the to manufactures site and download the newest driver for the best performance. Hope this helps.
