Problem with device loaders

I have ME, pav 7970. Two device loaders, ntkern.vxd and mmdevldr.vxd, can not load the drivers for my sound card (creative sound blaster audio pci 128), and 2 host controllers for usb. I have tried everything that I could, including removing the devices from device manager and running add/new hardware, downloading a new driver for the sound card, removing the first two lines of code from the autoexec.bat file. One option I could not do was renaming and extrating these files: uhcd.sys, usbhub.sys, usbd.sys because it required a start up disk and my floppy drive never worked right. Any other ideas? Thanks.
