No Audio Device

I just started having this problem after a power outage as I was playing music. Anyway, after the computer restarted, I discovered that there was no longer any sound. The device manager indicated that there was no audio device; I was also unable to uninstall any of the audio codecs.

First, I tried to reinstall the chipsets and IDT Audio driver for the Intel Desktop Board D945PLRN. However, while the chipset could successfully be installed, the audio setup was obstinate and perpetually gave me this error while subsequently closing:

Configuring IDT Audio Driver and Applications
_ExitError: Error=Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again

I'm operating on Windows XP Media Center Edition so I downloaded the chipsets and drivers from this page:

After that setup failed, I concluded that some of my audio codecs had been corrupted from before, which is why I decided to format C:\ drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP MCE. Disappointingly, the setup still gave the same error as I reattempted to install the audio driver.

Could someone please help me rectify this?

P.S. I've also browsed many pages pertaining to no audio device and tried many of their solutions but all of them were to no avail; examples include restarting the audio service and fiddling with system devices.
