.. you might be able to reset it to the default settings by removing the CMOS battery for 5 minutes, then replacing it.. Restarting the computer should now be possible, but maybe only Safe Mode again, as long as the BIOS reverted to the default settings.
Are you adding a sound card or just updating the drivers?
As to the sound card drivers, you'll need to provide us with a little more information for us to be much help.. What type of computer? Laptop/Desktop/Brand name/Model number? Which XP? No service pack, SP1, SP2, Home, Pro? Which sound card?
Hope this helps.
