Question about ASUS VIA Apollo Pro Plus Chipset P2V-B Motherboard

Configuring two soundcards for parallel functioning

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?

    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 (

    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.

Will motherboard will support winXP pro

Hi gimondor,

The motherboard really isn't your worry. Windows XP pro requires a 300 megahertz or higher processor. You motherboard can take from 100 to 400 megahertz, so you need to know what your CPU is. If your running an intel P4 chip, and at least 128 mbs of ram, and you have at least 2 gb's of hard drive space left on your hard drive, then you can run XP Pro.

Good Luck,

And please leave a rating based on my solution.
