You can take out that sound card you have. Make sure you have that motherboard CD that has the sound drivers on there.

Upon reboot, double check BIOS and enable onboard sound so that the PCI sound card is disabled. If you take out the sound card, this part probably won't matter. Then look for the sound drivers on that motherboard utility disc and install that. If that motherboard CD isn't available, try going to your motherboard's website to download it.

first of all, my computer says it has onboard sound but doesnt have speaker plugs in the back,,, and second of all.. i took the sound card out of a different computer and tried it, and got the drivers and everything ... and it did the exact same thing

so something is very wrong.. and every time it restarts it comes up with an error that says hardware might not work properly.. only for sound cards though

Hmmmm... have you tried calling the people you got your computer from? They could know something about the setup we do not.

It is very odd... I don't know what to say. Have you considered reinstalling Windows? It could just be down to that.
