    Notification about missing sound card

    I have a busted chip on my motherboard for the sound card. I am aware that it can't be fixed without much cost, so I'm leaving it. It's a Windows 10 Asus desktop, about 2 years old.

    But I keep getting a message about a missing sound card. I have turned off all the Win 10 notifications, but it pops up every time I boot up.

    Can I turn this off?

    Can you disable on board audio in Bios? That would keep Windows from even seeing it.

    Hi and thanks.

    Yes I can do that, but my sound system still works, even though there is a busted chip on the motherboard. But I don't want to lose all my sound, so I won't do that.

    Strangely the problem seems to have gone away, and I did nothing.

    Cheers and thanks again NavyLCDR.
