    For AC97 do I just go to Add/Remove Programs and remove it?

    And for disabling onboard sound do I just go to each driver and disable them in device manager? Or should I hunt down each driver and delete it as well? And how would I even find them all?

    To disable onboard sound you should do so in the BIOS.

    If you want to remove the respective software, you can do so thru ADD/Remove Programs.
