No, you just have to disable the onboard sound card by going into the device manager and right click on whatever sound device is listed then click on disable. when you install your new sound card its software will install it's drivers and away you go.
Hope this helps,

I want to know that , for BIOS updates in GA-K8VM800M motherboard, whether it is necessary to alter the jumper settings or not. If not, then please tell me about a Gigabyte model in which it is necessary.

I don't know how old is your Gigabyte Board, but the motherboard is not an invention that was exclusively for computers. The motherboard idea was generated for the defense electronic industry. Now what they had in mind with the jumpers, is not clear to me. I know for instance that the jumpers were calibrated to change the chip voltage 0.1V per step, but probably you are right. For a given frequency and speed that a computer is designed for, there is one setting of the jumpers. Now, if somebody wanted to change the frequency up or down then it would be necessary to change the settings of the jumpers. Thank you for your consideration and choice of our service.

Soundrecordingfailure by the use of Microphone or recorder tape

you would need to ensure if its onboard sound that the jumper on the motherboard is set correctly so its enabled there ( if it uses a jumper ) and also in the bios / cmos to ensure its enabled in there.

If its enabled in there then it will just be a case of ensuring your audio drivers are up to date in windows for your sound card and also when you connect the microphone it should be connected to the pink audio hole otherwise if you are recording from a tape then you will require the blue hole

Speakers doesnt play

check the motherboard manual and see if it requires a jumper to enable the audio onboard ( if so get the jumper from your motherboard box and seat it on the correct jumpers in the correct position to enable onboard audio ( assuming its onboard audio that you are using ) If not then ensure your sound card is seated firmly and install the correct drivers ( for either the onboard audio or the dedicated sound card ) and then ensure that the speaker cables are connected to the correct connectors on the sound card ( whether onboard or not ) and make sure windows audio is not muted for any of the auxilary lines ie wave etc and if its realtek ensure that you have 2 speakers selected in the HD Control panel and not head phones.

This is for the EliteGroup P4VMM2 motherboard. Please remove any newly added video card. One done boot the PC. Windows should load & function (Including video display). Yes?
Restart the PC & press the delete key every 2 seconds untill the bios menu loads. Opem the manual to page 33. Change the Primary Graphics Adapter from PCI to AGP. Save & exit the bios. The system will begian to restart. Press & hold the power button untill the PC shuts down. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Install the AGP card & connect any additional power to the video card if required. Double check all data & power connections for good fit before closing case. Re-connect the power cord & start up the PC. You should have display. Allow windows to finish loading & install the AGP software. Than update windows.
Who ever heard a single long beep. This means the video card may not be seated fully & or correctly. Remove the AGP card, blow out the AGP slot with canned air. Take some alcohol dripped onto a cotton swap. Clean the AGP's copper contacts & clean/wipe the copper within the AGP slot as best as possible. Allow time for alcohol to dry. Re-insert the AGP card, firmely & evenly.
Any more troubles? Please list the issue here. Need manual for the EliteGroup P4VMM2? Click on this link:

Good Luck!

Problem with my computer after clean up

You may need to reset the bios by finding terminal 'JBAT1' and put jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds, then back to pins 1-2. Check the memory is seated correctly and graphics card if fitted. Ensure you have'nt put too much thermal compound on the processor, it only requires a very thin application. Rstart pc then set time and date in the bios setings and save ten exir for a restart.
