Default Sound driver annoyance

I had this crappy Dell PC laying around with an old Creative Sound Blaster Live card in it and I put it into my current rig. I finally got it working (it sounds so much better than onboard sound), but every time I boot into XP the hardware detector detects the onboard audio drivers and prompts me to install them. This isn't a huge problem, but it's annoying to have that window popping up every time I turn on my computer. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Have you disabled onboard sound in your BIOS? Check.

I just figured out what it's called in my BIOS. It's fixed now.
