Go to your BIOS and under Onboard, enable onboard sound (usually AC'97) and when in Windows, make sure it works by going to Device Manager and seeing if its there. Also don't forget to go to dell.com to download the latest sound driver.

Also, uninstall Creative's Drivers, then run Drivercleaner Pro to clean up any extras.

And don't forget to uninstall the device in Windows before removing it, otherwise Windows might still default to the Live.
