Soundblaster instead of integrated audio

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0067c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Brought this home from Costco. Played with it to get all the updates and stuff to latest and greatest.


Decided I wanted better sound so I pulled my SoundBlaster Z card from the old computer and put it in this one.


I can see that the driver loaded. I run the Soundblaster setup i dowlnloaded and the setup program says the card is not found. I can see it in the sound setup but can not choose it. Tried to disable the integrated audio in Windows but that failed and took everyhting away including the SoundBlaster card.


Fired up BIOS but that was a laugh. There is nothing in the settings anymore like the good old days.


Does someone have a clue for me on how to get this to work?
