MMP16P sound package busted in 95

I recently upgraded to Win95.  I was using the original Packard Bell 16 sound card for about a week and a half in 95 when it decided to crash.  I get errors that the mm16 drivers are conflicting.  I can only boot up by taking out the card or in safe mode.  I tried reinstalling the drivers but that does not work.
WHAT TO DO?

Unfortunantly Packard Bell sets its startup configuration via the bios..
When a change is made to the system, the bios attempts to reset itself to the original configuration..
What is happening is win95 is trying to load vxd drivers for the sound system, and the Packard Bell bios is trying to go back to its original setup, and install those drivers.
Get with Pack Bell and get the newest drivers for their win95 setup, or a copy of their win95 version for their systems..
The other "fix" is a complete rebuild of the computer, (new MB, Bios, Video Card, etc).
One idea to try is to reset the bios to the defaultr settings (copy the bios info first in case it crashes all together)
