Absolutely. Uninstall everything related to onboard audio using the "Programs and Features" control panel.

Then after that, reboot into Safe Mode.

Once you are in Safe Mode, use Driver Sweeper.

Reboot when prompted.

Don't go back into Windows 7 just yet: instead, disable onboard audio through the BIOS first.

After disabling the BIOS, get back into Windows 7 and get back to having fun.

It minimizes the risk of having problems due to conflicts and other instability. Some people can get away with not worrying about it while others have no choice but to completely disable their onboard audio (when they get a sound card).

I have read that many BC2 hard lockups are related to sound..I get those hard lockups, do you think it is because I have onboard drivers installed and turned on as well as my sound card drivers installed and it turned on?

There's a chance that disabling it in the BIOS (after uninstalling it as I described above) could speed up boot time both in the motherboard's Power-On Self Test and in Windows due to having one less piece of hardware on the board.

Maybe. It wouldn't be the first time I've seen people have general problems due to this.

Ahh I see. Works fine for me in Windows but I disabled in BIOS for Linux.
