I am trying to upgrade my diamond 5000 multimedia drivers.But first I have to get rid of the old drives.I have  removed all references to the drivers in the device manager and in the register.Also removed any references to them in the autoexec.bat & config.sys files in the  old dos & windows. I looked in the win.ini file no references to the drivers.When I boot up, the sound card still loads and works fine even with all this removed.If I try and load the new drivers  I get a conflict error.The driver in question I believe is mpu-401

My best guess is that it Windows95 is autodetecting the Sound Card when you reboot.  If you are still getting the "Microsoft Sound" when you boot up the machine then it is not the MPU-401 giving you problems because that is only the "MIDI" sound driver.  Here are some suggestions.

1) Boot into safe mode, delete "everything" in device manager listed under the multi-media gameport section.  Reboot.  Windows detects new device and prompts you for the drivers.

2) In device manager, double-click the Diamond 5000, go to the "drivers" tab, at the bottom click the change driver button, browse to the location of the new drivers.

Let me know if these two options don't work.
