Go into your bios and turn off your onboard sound for first.

Also, there is a certain facade when people think that there is going to be great fps jump from onboard to pci card. Sure you'll see a small jump but it won't help a lot. So don't expect miracles.

However, that being said. Onboard and EAX don't really get a long. Speaking from experience just turn that onboard sound off and you should get a little better fps.

It only lags bad and gives me bad frame rate when playing BFVietnam no other game has ever done this and i play games like-

UT 2003 UT 2004 Raven shield Never winter nights Sacred Call of duty Medal of honor Max payne 2 And even BF1942 played ok

And in UT2004 you have to have the most up to date drivers to enable Eax sound or it will crash, and UT2004 plays fine with Eax on for me so i dont get it.and im useing my driver not the defalt one for sound that they have in the options.

The EAX fix should be in upcoming patches, I believe. Just leave it off for now.

Agreed... if EAX is giving you problems (even with the most updated sound drivers), then turn it off.
