XP won't boot after installing audio driver.

I re-installed XP Pro on my Athlon XP1800 with 768 Mb ram and everytime I install an audio driver (I've tried 3!) for the AC97 onboard audio, when I re-boot XP stops loading and hangs on the XP Pro loading screen.

I'm in a "Catch 22" situation, the audi drivers do their job, they all worked, but they all stop the computer from re-booting and I have tried the very latest one from Via!

Any idea's anyone cos' I'm tearing my hair out here!

Used "Optimised Defaults" setting in Bios, XP boots up OK now.
