Hello from Canada !! Yes you certainly can. You have to go into Start---->Control Panel----->System----->Hardware---->Device Manager---->Sound And Game Controllers. From here you can disable the on board sound once before your new card is installed. Once you have the driver installed for the card, you may have to reboot the system. Any further questions, just ask. Good luck

    Yes, I have been there before. Some times PCI slots fail due to the motherboard. I have the same problem but it is rare. Thats why I did not suggest it yet. Glad its working now.

Can not pick up my hard drive

Check the jumpers on the HDD are not set to slave.

Try a different SATA channel (or IDE channel) on the MOBO.

Try different molex to power the drive up. Hold the drive when it is connected, does it hum indicating that the platter is spinning?

I have a Dell dim 4700. A few months ago I started to have some static on my speakers. Now that is about all that I hear. I have already pulled the sound card and put it back in . I have also moved the...

You'll probably need a new sound card but the best way to verify this, is to pull the sound card out completely and use the integrated sound thats on the motherboard, you should see more sound outputs near the ps2 ports where you would hook up a keyboard or mouse.

If you get good sound out of that then you know for sure your sound card is bad, if you get static even out of those sound outputs on the motherboard then you know that your speakers are bad.

No sound from ports 1 or 3 on SB Audigy BC00

The other two ports maybe for a micphone and AUX input.
