i know this is offtopic but its a good forum to ask this:

my problem is that that the ASUS A8V BIOS is deaktivation the internal soundkard as soon a PCI Soundkard (dosent matter which brand) is pluged in.

my question: is there a virtual soundcard driver to route the win sound to it even if it has no output (nobody needs the winsound really). the same goes for the midi driver.

any other ideas maybe? i also tried to dissable the winsounds with no luck.
everything what helped was to install another cheap pci card.

here are some more info´s on that:
