Default Random Device disabling from WinXP

My windowsXP has been giving me trouble lately. Recently, the device manager picked up several devices that weren't working. First, the keyboard was disabled out of nowhere. After I reinstalled it, the cd drives were disabled. After I reinstalled that, the sound device was disabled. Now my sound device is shown to be working in the device manager, but truthfully it isn't working at all. What's the reason behind this sudden device disabling?

What does Kutabare mean sir?
