I thought I disabled my on board sound from my MSI motherboard through the control panel option sounds and devices. I disabled and deleted Realtek AC'97 ( Was that a bad move?) controller from the Hardware list, but I am hearing occasional static and as if the music was running a little slower at times than it should. What shows on this list in control panel is as follows; Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit ( It says its running properly ) , Multimedia Audio Controller, Audio Codecs, Media Control Devices, Legacy Video Capture Devices, Video Codecs are all under the hardware list. I have tried to look under my bios for another way to turn off the on board sound ( since I assume that is my problem ) and could not find any option, I thought dealing with it through control panel would work. I was also having problems playing music off the CD-ROM, the music would come through a lot slower than it should and sound a bit distorted at times. I tried connecting an analog CD audio cable as suggested in the Sound Blaster instructions but it hasn't fixed my problem. ( The cable I used was connected to a 4 tooth slot on the motherboard next to the first PCI slot. I disconnected the cable, I figured since it was a 4 port comming from the back of the CD-ROM it was an analog audio cable? I then reconnected the end that was attached to the mother board to the open slot on the card. The sound seems reasonable enough to listen to a CD through my CD-RW drive instead, it still isn't a clear as it should be though. I have tested the speakers on another PC and they work fine, the speakers wouldn't account for the slow up anyway. I have also tried all of the options under the EAX menu's and none seem to get rid of the random static that seems to jump in or the slow up that accompanies it. I would appreciate any and all of the help I can get, thank you for your time.
