Are you going to start with a clean reformatted hard drive or use your exsisting operating system? That is the key. Start with the video card only then install each card seperately with the matching driver. Some M/B are pickie about what slot the sound card goes into that it is not shared with another slot & IRQ assignment. I have to set the bios up to reserve IRQ 5 for the S/B card. If you are not reformatting the HD then you can run regedit to remove the motherboard files from the system. Windows is a driver driven O/S.
