My first message:
"I have an NVIDIA 9400GT card."
Whether it's an Asus or an MSI, it's always a 9400GT card. Otherwise,
you wouldn't know what you're talking about.

What lspci told you is information entered in the card by Asustek.
EN9400GT, was in my first message, then I told you it was an Asus. The
info you now seem to consider relevant tells you nothing more, except
the card has 1GB RAM, cause some have 512 MB.

Yeeeees, once again, it's integrated in the mobo.

I'm referring to the arrow on the plug facing this or that side of the
motherboard, never a word about a discrete sound card, and you ask if
I have a discrete sound card?
Besides lspci -v says:
Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
Subsystem: Giga-byte Technology Device a022
What would Giga-byte have to do in a discrete audio card?

The mobo has 4 male pins -- excuse the pleonasm -- for s/pdif out in a
little casing. The plug has 4 female holes, one of which is
obstructed. How do you get the plug in if you don't open the plugged
hole: a pin will be facing the plugged hole.
Ed, I believe you're getting tired. Sometimes, when you try to hard,
you get obnubilated. I suggest you take a day off.
