Faulty Sound Cards

Can they be removed? Or are there certain types which can't? Somebody expalined to me that theirs was faulty and could not be replaced because it appeared to have been soldered or embeded to the motherboard. I have been told that SCs are usually removable nor do they need to be. But if it is faulty then it can be disabled and a new one fitted to a vacent slot. Are they all like this or is it only certain types?

You are presumably referring to onboard sound.

This needs Enabling in the Bios and the correct drivers installed.

If you acquire a sound card then onboard sound has to be Disabled.

I would be very surprised if an onboard sound chipset was faulty under normal circumstances.
