Error code 8878000A help please

I'm getting really desperate...when I came back from home one day the light on the computer was on but it wasn't running. Then I unplugged and replugged it and restarted the computer and when it started running again there was no sound whatsoever. So im not really good with computer so can you guys please help me because I tried fixing this problem myself, but i think i made it worse...i'm not sure and now I give up and need some major help. Whenever i try to play something on winamp it always shows this msg "Bad DirectSound driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error code: 8878000A." Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi! ... Unfortunelly I can aswer to you only in italian linguage, 'cause the procedure is complex, and I dont't know english linguage very well ...

By the way the problem probabilly is about "Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator".
Purtroppo posso rispondere solo in lingua italiana, essendo questa lunga e complessa ....essa è tratta da un articolo on line della rivista PC Open(http://www.b2b24.ilsole24ore.com/pco..._56516,00.html).

Riporto per intero:
Una situazione nella quale il sistema operativo segnala che tutto funziona perfettamente ma non avvia il driver, si verifica quando manca un componente del sistema operativo, il Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator che agisce da intermediario tra i driver e l’hardware.

La presenza o assenza del componente si può verificare espandendo la voce Periferiche del sistema in Gestione periferiche (Start, Pannello di controllo, Sistema, Hardware, Gestione periferiche).

Per installare nuovamente il componente usate la funzione Cerca di Windows XP e cercate il file swenum.sys nella directory i386 del disco di installazione di Windows XP.

Cliccatevi sopra con il tasto destro del mouse, selezionate Estrai e assegnate la destinazione x:\Windows (x è la lettera del disco in cui è installato il sistema operativo).

Utilizzate ancora Cerca e localizzate il file machine.inf il quale dovrebbe trovarsi nella directory di Windows. Create una copia del file con un altro nome, per esempio machine_1.inf, in una directory diversa.

Aprite il file con l’editor di testo NotePad, cancellate la riga ExcludeFromSelect=*, che si trova all’incirca fra la riga n.20 e la n.23, salvate il file e uscite dall’editor. Andate in Start, Pannello di controllo e cliccate su Installazione hardware e poi su Avanti.

Quando il sistema ha finito la ricerca automatica del nuovo hardware selezionate Sì nel pannello che domanda se il nuovo hardware è giÃ_ stato collegato al computer.

Nel pannello successivo selezionate Aggiungi nuova periferica hardware e poi Avanti. Quindi selezionate l’opzione Installa l’hardware selezionato manualmente da un elenco (per utenti esperti), poi nella categoria hardware selezionate Mostra tutte le periferiche (la prima voce della lista) e Avanti.

Nella finestra successiva cliccate su Disco driver…, poi con Sfoglia localizzate la directory in cui avete salvato la copia del file machine.inf col nome diverso.

Nella finestra Produttore selezionate (Standard system devices) e in quella di sinistra, Modello, selezionate Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator e Avanti. Confermate tutte le richieste fino al termine.

Alla fine la periferica dovrebbe funzionare senza riavviare il computer. Se non si trova il file machine.inf si può scaricarne una copia a questo indirizzo.

Come al solito raccomandiamo di creare una copia di backup del sistema prima di intraprendere qualsiasi azione sui file del sistema.
