Not so surprisingly, it worked here too. Q9400 system. static between 23-96kHz only in playback.
I'm surprised though, disabling it in BIOS doesn't seem to override the software settings within XP at all.
I'll be hunting for a way to do it without 3rd party software, only to keep boot times to a minimum (i take pride in having a fast system and keeping it fast).
