Jat, m8 to boot into safe mode, whilst it's booting press the F5 key repeatedly after your m/c 's finished checking the ram, you'll be presented with a menu asking about safe mode, safe mode with networking & safe mode command prompt, select safe mode.
Once it's booted, you should be presented with a log-on screen with ADMINISTRATOR as one of the users, select that, have a look in your add/remove programs list to see if there's an entry for the driver you've just installed. If there is uninstall it, that should remove all the driver files. If you've got 'onboard' sound, have the cd that came with your mobo to hand. Reboot m/c and load the drivers from the cd....
See if that helps...

What motherboard are you using?

I had a similar problem where the drivers from the mobo makers website caused the crash. Replaced them with drivers direct from the chipset maker and it sorted it out.
