Question about MSI K8MM-V Motherboard

Can't activate Soundblaster LIVE 5.1 audio card on msi k8mm-v

I tried moving a SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 audio card from one PC to another (an msi k8mm-v). The SB Live! software seems to install the drivers, but upon reboot, Windows reports a missing DevCon5.dll. SB diagnostics simply report the card is not installed. Windows add new hardware wizard can't find a suitable device driver on the SB CD or on the Internet.

I presume I should disable the on-board audio, can't find a CMOS option to do that. What do I need to do?

    Ok I found the DLL on the disk and copied it Windows\System. The bigger problem is that the SB install disk seems to install the drivers, but Windows does not locate the device. I guess I need to disabled the onboard sound on the K8MM-V MSI mobo, but there's no CMOS option to do that and nothing on the utilities disk they provided for it either. Any ideas?

Locate the file from your other machine and copy it over. it will most likely not be the only missing file.
Windows device manager will almost never find a suitable driver on the web and you may need to locate it yourself from the installation cd.
