Help needed re sound card.

Hello

My PC has a sound card built into the mother board...and it is defective, producing very distorted sound.

I run the PC sound system through an external amplifier and speakers. I checked the external system was ok by substituting a normal pair of PC speakers, and the problem was the same.

I believe I am right in thinking that it is easy to obtain and fit a sound card that can plug into the sockets on the mother board (or something?).

I know I have to go into bios and deselect the onboard sound card.

Anything else I should be thinking of?

Thank you

Richard
