You could load the drivers and then disable the onboard sound devices in device manager. Once that is done, then install the plugin sound card.

Usually there is a setting in the BIOS to disable onboard sound. There may be a jumper on the motherboard that needs to be changed. The best source for this would be the manual. If the drivers are being loaded from the autoexec.bat file then you can edit those lines to get rid of that.

Do the following

type Sysedit
Go to the window that shows autoexec.bat
put the word "rem" and a space in front of the lines that refer to the sound card.


Example before editing


After editing

rem C:\yourdriver

Notice, all that was added was the chage to one line. Your file may be different but look for the line that says "tshoot" or anything to do with "ESS"....

Save the file and close. If you need to restore it simply edit the autoexec.bat file again and take out the word "rem" and the space.

Itried using msconfig to uncheck the startup ess driver and going in to autoexec from there.The pin is soldered onboard and still loads rewriting auto and config in the system.I just selected disable in system for now.I can clip the little wire on the board to separate it with pointed dog clippers,very thin clippers can clip hairs.
