No sound!!!!!!!

 Blocked Profile -
My comp had a "physical dump error" ...which i took care of by starting the windows Xp (professional) in
last best configeration ..... though my computer is working for now, i can't hear any sound .

OS: Windows XP (professional)
Motherboard: Asus M2N-MX
Audio driver/card (inbuilt with the motherboard): SoundMax Integerated Digital audio HD

Winamp shows :
------"bad Directsound driver. Please install proper drivers or another device in configeration
Error code: 88780078"------

My Gom video Player shows the video But say:
------"This system does not have sound devices or sound devices does not installed properly"-------

My volume control says:
------"There are no active mixer device available. To install mixer devices,go to control panel,
click printer and other hardware, and then click Add Hardware."-------
I have tried reinstalling my audio driver (latest version),
I have checked the 'device manager' which shows that my SoundMax Integerated Digital audio HD device is working properly.
I have checked the Service.msc through Run and it shows that my "Windows Audio" is "started"
and restarting it dosen't help.......
Please help!!!! ......................

Then the best solution is that you try to do a system restore :)
