Thanks all, shes got into the bios & there is no option to disable the onboard sound.

look for AC97 audio or sigmatel audio or similar in control panel/system/device manager and click its properties and select disable.

shut down and insert the new sound card if upgrading and restart. then install the drivers for it.

Thanks huggyg71 she has diabled the onboard sound but now can get the mic & speakers to work @ the same time, in recording control if she ticks the stereo mix box the music works but no mic & if she puts a tick in the mic box its the other way round any ideas anyone could it be an irq problem ??
