|No nothing is wrong with the onboard sound. I just find for what i want which is some audio production that onboard sound is no good. Also i like the i/o on the front with the Live Drive part. Easy to put the mic into and headphones rather than reaching round the back and putting adapters on because they don't fit.|
Soundonboard is disabled in the bios. Not long after i got this machine years back i had a pci soundcard so i am used to doing that. Much better sound.
The soundcard does work properly. It is just the front thing that is not. I have been using the soundcard on it's own for a month maybe as i didn't have the ribbon cable to connect them together til the other day.
