Here is why I am looking at the bios! Below is the Q & A from Microsoft.
My bios is on a Matsonic MS7192S motherboard

I installed a new sound card.
I also disabled the mother board soundcard driver.
When I boot up I see a dialog box "New hardware found".
This box disappears and a new box opens saying "Multimedia
audio device driver to make hardware work". This is a
wizard search. The boot process stops! I hit cancel and
the loading of programs continues! How can I stop this
process of looking for new hardware?

There are instances where disabling the sound card built into your motherboard isn't quite enough to stop it from being detected by Windows.
Usually, such mistakes are fixed with bios updates from your motherboard manufacturer.
