Configuring two soundcards for parallel functioning

Hi,
I'm running a winxp pro (sp3) on a Lenovo M55e desktop pc. I would like to keep a permanent connection between my pc and my home cinema system. Since keeping such a connection, meaning permanent one, halts my system audio and tunnels all audio information exclusively to my home cinema system, I bought a second soundcard, TurtleBeach Amigo USB soundcard. I planned to connect the home cinema to this usb card, while leaving my onboard soundcard operative for pc system sound outlets.
Well, when I connected the new USB soundcard to the home cinema system's cable, my pc lost its audio (keeping home cinema as the exclusive active audio outlet.
Is there a way to satisfy my preferences? Can it be done on system level? Is it possible via software level (For example, is it possible to configure quicktime to use the external soundcard and Windows Media Player via onboard sc?

    honest1abe,

    Thanks for your reply to my c a n c e l l e d inquiry. (I cancelled it since it was posted in the wrong place).

    Still, specifically, I tried to find a way to override windows' limitations, The solution I'm trying at this moment is the following:

    1/ I've installed a second soundcard, TurtleBeach USB soundcard.

    2. I've plugged my home cinema cable to this usb card.

    3. I've installed an free application named Quick Sound Switch (http://www.quicksoundswitch.toflo.de/eng...).

    I hope to be able to switch more conveniently from my desktop sound to my home cinema system sound.

    Well, thanks for your efforts.

Windows does not play nicely with 2 sound cards. Perhaps one of these days Microsoft will get out of the stone age and recognize other options, but for now, the general consensus is that it is not feasible.

About the only thing I have seen is to turn off one sound card in the hardware profile, but that is not what you are trying to do.

I am unable to open bios. Actually I wanted to change the boot sequence for HARDDISK TO CDROM but could not open bios. What to do?


Hi ranjanaghosa,

I see that you need to change the Boot Sequence on you Thinkcentre M55e but could not get in BIOS right.

to be able to change Boot sequence you can also try on tapping f12 as soon as you power the machine ON untill you get the Boot Menu you can also change boot sequence from there.

To get in the BIOS on a desktop you need to keep on tapping F1 as soon as you power the computer ON, but if still this does not work you can try Tapping on the Delete key to get in the BIOS, getting in the BIOS depends on the motherboard some use f1 to get in the BIOS some use Delete to get in the BIOS on desktops.

but using the F12 key can be done as well if the F1 or Delete key does not work.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nica day,

I have lenovo think centre m55e 9637 desktop.I want ethernet controller driver for this.I tried installing q3etn14us13.exe driver but it's not working.


I'm assuming your OS, is windows Xp since that is the driver you are installing it for. Try uninstalling the driver by right clicking my computer -> manager -> device manager -> Network Adapters and underneath it click uninstall. Then try reinstalling. If that still doesn't work try installing a previous driver, such as this one: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkcentre_drivers/q3etn12us13.exe
And that should work definitely work for you. Please make sure you have Windows XP and not Windows 7 32 or 64 bit.

Configuring two soundcards for parallel functioning


a windows computer can only use one sound card for one function

you can use the internal sound card for output
you can use the usb sound card for input / recording.

you can't use both for both.

Start -> control panel -> sounds and audio devices properties
open up audio page

You can have one device selected on Sound playback
You can have one device selected on Sound recording.

you can change which sound card is used for which function on this page. if you want to use the internal sound card set both settings to the internal if you want to use the external change both settings to the external.
