    What does this external sound piece look like? And what Kinda of motherboard are you using?

    Well, you connect the DVD/CD to the sound card, otherwise to the MoBo, if it has onboard sound. The only "external device" should be speakers?

    I think that we need a bit more information?

    Could you define "external sound peice"?

    When you say "plug up in there somewhere", i take it you are talking about the inside of your computer?

    It may be a bit easier all round if you re-write your post, try to read it from our position!

    It's very hard to make any accurate guess as to what your problem is!

    Thanks!

    Sounds to me like its one of the plugs for the surround sound that connect to the back of your computer sticking out like a card. I've got one for a sub and such like that.

    Now in order to find out where to hook it in, or if I'm barking up the wrong tree, we need to know what kind of motherboard you have, and what exactly the extra piece is your looking at.

    On my motherboard it was near the PCI slots towards the back of the computer.

    Get the model of the motherboard, it will be printed on it somewhere, and the number, and my guess is we can find the diagram for it online.
