On board sound and PCI Sound Card


I have an onboard sound chip (Via) and a Sound Blaster Live Value card (PCI). I recently installed Mandrake 9.1 and it detected and set up both cards even though the onboard chip is disabled in the bios setup. Would this be the reason why I have no sound?

How can I remove the configuration for the onboard sound chip? I see in Mandrake Control Center that both are set up but it gives me nowhere to remove it.

I commented the chip out in etc/modules.conf. Should I have done that?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Actually no. My mandrake did this as well. Check your aumix, and up the volumes, and then test your volume. (audigy 2/ac'97 on board)

You don't have to disable the on-board sound; mine has the same setup as yours: the on-board sound is disabled in the BIOS, yet it is detected and drivers are provided. Despite this, no confliction occurs with the PCI sound card (a Creative SB Live 5.1 DE). Your problem is most probably the same as described here:

That's awesome man! It worked like a charm. And actually if you move the sliders to the top and then click on the area where the green light is...it activates it and the speaker shows up in the system tray unmuted.

Thanks mate! Much appreciated... my "nubiness" was showing through with that one.

No problem - glad to be of help. Thanks for the feedback - I appreciate it. Also, thanks for the extra info about activating a slider causing the speaker to be unmuted - I didn't know that. All such snippets of info add to the knowledge bank.
