    This is a new dell and has the following:


    256MB Radeon HD 2600 XT

    8 Channel Dolby

    Sound Blaster Audigy MB Audio


    Can someone please tell me which one is my soundcard?

    Down by my clock the icon says "Speakers- Realtek High Definition Audio "and another icon says "Realtex HD Audio Mangager"

    What is this Realtek? Part of one of the things I listed above? Is this Realtek my soundcard?

    I just did that and in device manager under Sounds it says the following

    High Definition Audio Device ( clicking on that says manufacturer is Microsoft )

    RealTek High Definition Audio ( clicking on that says manufacturer is Realtek)

    I don't see anywhere Sound Blaster and now that I see those two listed in Device Manager I still don't know which is my sound card.

    Thanks for your help.
  6. "Sounds" to like you have both, and the onboard sound chip is the one which is active.

    Sounds about right. Im also pretty sure realtek is the onboard sound. I think you disable onboard sound in the bios or it might be in the device manager.
