Gatewway MX6450. No sound, tried everything

Gateway / Mx6450

Specs: Windows XP, 1.989 GHz / 958 MB
I have no sound from laptop. I have tried everything, uninstalling, re-installing, driver downloads, etc; I think I need to reinstall system. I get "Code 10: Device cannot start." Where can I get system download for free? Am disabled and cannot work so money is an issue. Any other suggestions?

Control Panel/ Sounds and Audio devices/Audio device tab/ Sound playback "advanced" audio properties button/ performance tab, I moved the Audio playback performance acceleration slider back one notch from Full to Standard. This immediately made audio play again.

I got the clue from which talked of reducing video acceleration as a solution to a windows media player problem.

I can't do that because it says "No audio device". I try to install a device and I get "Device cannot start: Code 10"
