Disable Sound On A Compaq Ms6577 Motherboard

The Compaq Ms-6577 motherboard, used in some Compaq computers, is compatible with Intel Pentium 4 and Celeron processors. Along with onboard video, the motherboard has an onboard sound chip. If you're intending on installing a separate sound card, disabling the onboard sound chip is required to ensure the proper functioning of the sound card. Leaving the sound turned on on the motherboard can cause device conflicts and improperly working sound.


1. Restart your Compaq computer. Press the delete key as soon as your computer starts to boot up in order to enter MSI/Award BIOS. The BIOS (basic input/output system) controls your motherboard; use its settings to control the onboard sound chip.

2. Use your arrow keys to select "Integrated Peripherals," and press "Enter."

3. Press the down-arrow key until you highlight "AC97 Audio." Press "Enter."

4. Select the "Disabled" option to turn off the sound chip on your MS-6577 motherboard. Press "F10" to save and exit Award BIOS.
