Default HELP!! The Data Is Invalid - XP Driver Install

Hi! Help! Please...

Ive just recently updated to XP+SP2 and began merrily installing my drivers, etc onto my nice fresh PC.

When installing my soundcard drivers im given the error 'The Data Is Invalid', this is after it has recognised my 'Multimedia Audio Controller' as an 'Avance AC'97 Audio' which is correct.

Now ive looked all over and found this to have been a recuring problem relating to XP and PCI.
There is a solution given using regedit and changing permissions on the said device to Full, etc.
For lots of people it seems to work, but for me and one other poor dude I found it wont work.

I'm not a newb, ive followed the instructions to the letter, sucessfully changing the permissions, etc. but after this, it still will not let me install the drivers, even after booting, and in safe mode, and when i do it standing on my head.

So, I beg to the tech gods upon high to help me, I want to hear music again, and gunshots... I will sacrifice a small mammal if neccesary...

Please Help!!
