Hello


I have this motherboard and I was wondering if the audio card is part of the motherboard or something "alone?" The port is broken and I can't connect my external speakers to it anymore. I did use duck tape to hold it before, but now I can't have stereo sound if I do


So I'm not sure if the audio card is part of the motherboard, if yes I would have to find another MB to replace just the audio port? (the plastic ring outside is broken, that's why)


its the Sony laptop that got that small problem. The Compaq is inside that seem defective.


Also I notice that the Compaq is slower to respond to command. I mean like I click on a link and its slower to respond compare to the Sony.



It seem for what I read on the two specs that the Compaq is like 1000 Mhz slower that the Sony?


Can I upgrade the CPU for a more powerful?



I think both have 6 gig of ram, the max for bot is 8 Gig.



Thanks

The sound for a laptop will be apart of the motherboard itself. If one piece is broken, you'll need to replace the entire motherboard. Unfortunately for laptops, there isn't a whole lot of available replacement parts or options.

Both of these systems are rather old. I wouldn't recommend spending money on replacing pieces, but rather putting that money towards a new computer.

I have usually had good luck with Startech products which would be the one shown at that link. Best products are Creative Soundblaster and Asus Xonar IMHO.

The first link brings up nothing for me and the second a whole page of soundcards, not sure what you are trying to show here.

from there I look at computer's parts for sound cards and on the left I chose USB to filter the result.


Also with the price difference, what is good for a 2.1 speakers?

Look online for a set of usb speakers. Amazon has some.
Make sure that they do not need a headphone plug,
only usb.
Here is an example: they are on Amazon...

If you have a set of speakers already, or want better sound here is the way to go...
This of course if you have an open usb port. Any usb port will work.

My speakers are Altec Lansing VS4121


I have great quality sound with them, so I need to know what USB sound card will work well with them?

Either Asus Xonar or Creative Soundblaster are the best fit with quality Altec Lansing, and your speakers are among the best out there, I have 2 sets of them.

Buy either of those brands, then what you buy will not matter.
