Disabling motherboard sound cards

By 6MysterySteward ·
I am helping a friend with his obsolete Ultinet system and am ready to learn how to disconnect/turn off a motherboard sound card in order to install a new one. Details: 686 AMIBIOS 995 American Megatrends BC25262, ESS Audio Driver ESI869F G240 TTUC6696A, Pentium II, MS Win95, what else? (I know, save your keystrokes about the ancient equipment. This is as much for my education as it is for my friend's equipment. See further my post in the College Degree/On the job experience discussion

Disabling motherboard sound cards

Try Start | Settings | Control Panel | Device Manager. Disable the onboard soundcard through this. Turn off the PC, add the new soundcard, and then turn it back on. If you're lucky, Plug and Play will detect it upon reboot, but if not go back to the device manager and add the driver manually (right-click on device, properties, update driver).

Hope that helps -

I forgot about the control panel. As it turned out, I was able to disable the 'on board' option through the set up while booting.
