Also when you buy an external card it will come with an instalation cd. I would instal from the driver cd, because you get more functionality. I learned that the hard way with my x-fi external card.

Most of the time! But not always.

So, the USB external sound card will download its drivers from Windows and will work right out of the box?  Will I need to turn off my computer’s current internal sound card?

If you just want to use a USb card for playing audio, all you have to do is plug it into a USB port.  However, most features offered by the sound card, such as recording, will not be available unless you install the basic software that comes with the card.  I don't know if it is possible to generalize about how accessible installation is from sound card to sound card. 

 

I'll let others deal with the other questions you raise.

Hi Matt,

 

How can a USB sound card help with a fresh install?  Also, what brand of USB do you recommend?  And, last, are these USB cards easy for a blind person to install?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

James Bentley

Also the chance of the onboard card dying is very slim I have never had one dye I know of. I have had this dell desktop XPS I think it is a model 8100 for at least 6 years if not more and have never had the first problem with the sound that is on board and I don’t have a sound card in this one as it had such a great onboard sound system. What I did was get a graphic card for it rather than using the on board graphics as I wanted a graphic board that had its own memory instead of sharing my computer memory.

Now there is an advantage to having a USB card for several reason. One you can have the system sounds and such come thru one and the other for just jaws. Also it might come in helpful if ever needing to do a complete fresh install.

Unless you know or are willing to pay someone who can install an internal card, a USB sound card will work just as well.

Hi

  The reason I would like a second sound card is because the original one is integrated into the system.  If the sound card dies, I don’t know who could fix it.
