    You are really gonna have alot of trouble configuring that PC. Name brand PC's don't like aftermarket parts installed. You will run into alot of conflicts. If you can, do a fresh install of Windows and it may go smoother. BUT, make sure you can get the system drivers (Chipset and such) from Sony before you reinstall.

    OR

    You can try cleaning out all the sound drivers and video drivers. Then reinstall the cards with the drivers disk and hope for the best. Always avoid buying a name brand PC whenever possible.

    Go into the BIOS and disable the onboard sound.
