sorry, i should have been more specific, when i got the computer it only had
an oboard graphics and onboard sound, there was is no stand alone graphic or
sound cards, i then upgraded the graphics card but the sound card is still
onboard, so i can't move it to a different PCI slot as it is on the
motherboard. maybe this is where the problem is... should i upgrade the sound
card along with the graphic card? bestbuy said that i shouldn't have to do
this... i've never had to upgrade these cards before because i've only had
laptops priviously. thanks.
