Angry SoundMax Intergrated Sound Card

I am having a problem with this computer ( Gateway Celaron running Windows XP) First came up with error message can't load windows missing winnt\system32\.... and I got it back using a winXP install disk. Then the computer started up fine, but no sound. It has SoundMax Intergrated Sound. I uninstalled and reinstalled, I also down loaded new drivers but still don't work In properties it says it is enabled, but not started. Any ideas.... I did go out and buy a sound card, but didn't put it in yet. I don't know if it will come up with the same problem

Yes, I did get it to say enable, but when I get the the sounds screen through the control panel and the first tab is greyed out where you can't adjust anything
