Windows 7: Sound card update.. Computer freezes after restarting

Windows Ultimate 32 bit.
Sound card update.. Computer freezes after restarting

Hello ! How are you all? I hope everybody's fine.
I just got an old sound card "Crystal cs4281-cm" that i already know it didn't have windows 7 compatible driver.
I tried to find a windows 7 driver, but no luck. So I downloaded xp dirver. I tried to install it by running the setup.exe, and by browsing the computer to find the driver software in "manage", and then by the by choosing "let me pick up from a list devide drivers on my computer, and then selecting the ".inf" file. But nothing of the mentiond methods worked.
so I found that windows update has known the device's name and recommended me to download it so I ran the update and it installed the driver (I ran only the driver and nothing else)
it said that it can't take effect before i restart my computer, so I did. after it started up and I entered the user's password, it froze. So I had to restore the system to get it word again.
correct me if I'm wrong.. there are two lights on the computer case. I have one green which I think it's to tell that the computer is turned on, and another Orange light which i think it's to show something about the hard disk work or something.

When I enter the password the Orange light works fine, and it freezes when the orange isn't on.

thank you so much for helping in advance...
