Via Audio problems

Asus mother board / M3n78-vm

Specs: Windows Vista, X26000/ 4GBDDR800
I recently installed an Asus M3n78-VM mobo and all was well. I had no problems with the audio and getting surround sound. Today I tried recording from a keyboard via the line in but I could get no sound from the speakers even though I could see input levels.
So I installed the Via HD audio drivers and now it will not recognise the speakers (no sound, will not accept 5.1 sound). If I uninstall the drivers I get 5.1 with a line in but cannot hear what I am playing through the speakers. My device manager shows two audio devices; Via HD and HD audio device (I think this is because the BIOS allows for external and internal codecs). I disabled each in Bios as well as uninstalling each in device manager but so far no luck.

Also, Windows update keeps prompting me to install Nvidia HD audio drivers.

Puzzled...can anyone help here?

I think I solved it guys. Not sure exactly what did it but I uninstalled both devices, restarted and quickly installed the drivers from the original Mobo DVD before windows managed to get its own drivers in. Now everything is as before.

Oh, and I uninstalled the Nvidia audio drivers it had installed.
