    Hi, I have some limited knowledge on computer hardware so I probably know all the very basics, but that is probably all. Here is my question:

    I have a GA-965P-S3 motherboard, and I would like to completely remove the onboard sound card. Could someone tell me how to disable it, then remove any offending cables/jumpers/or whatever (if possible), as if it is not there at all?

    If it is possible, I would also like to know a way to connect the front panel jacks to my PCI sound card (CMI8738).

    My problem:
    My on board card is broken (so it seems), and I purchased the cheap CMI8738 card. However, there seem to be driver conflicts, which causes the computer to crash when it detects incoming audio (from recording etc.). Sound output is fine otherwise.

    Thank you! =)

    on initial boot screen...(should have yellow energy logo in top right corner)

    press delete to enter setup...

    it is in the "integrated peripherals"
    Azalia Codec should be set on auto, disable it

    the default is auto detect. Have you tried to uninstall it in devece manager??
    that may work too, but if not disable it in bios.

    be sure not to change anything unless you are sure what it is.....

    then you will want to uninstall it from you device manager in windows...

    then proceed with the install of the new card...

    not sure how to get it to hook up to the front of ur case....

    Didnt think anyone used that feature ;-)
