Why would my graphics card install an audio driver?
Makes sense but you certainly don't need the MOBO sound card if you have a USB or PCI interface. I always disabled it in my main PC running a 2496. I leave is working in this W7 HP laptop because I can then record radio sound (stereo mix) and it is convenient to just plug cans in. The drivers in my KA6 are good enough that they just overrule it, not all might?
