    I found this... may be of help to you.

    Annoyances.org - sound device error (Windows XP Discussion Forum)

    1) Go to System in Control Panel, Hardware tab, Device Manager button.
    2) Click the + in front of 'System devices' (near the bottom), and look for a line that says: Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator
    This fix will only help if you are missing that line, or if you have a yellow exclamation point on that line! If you have that line, and there's no yellow exclamation point, then stop here and look elsewhere - you've got a different situation.

    Okay, now that you've confirmed that you're missing the Plug and Play Software Enumerator, or that it's broken:

    1) Make sure you have the following two files in Windows (do a search - they should be there):
    streamci.dll
    swenum.sys
    You don't need to do anything with them, just make sure they're there.

    Then:
    1) Copy machine.inf from WINDOWS\inf to a temporary location
    2) Edit the temporary copy of machine.inf - remove the line that says "ExcludeFromSelect=*", and save the file
    3) in Control Panel, choose "Add Hardware"
    at the 'Welcome to the Add Hardware Wizard' window - click Next
    at the 'Add Hardware Wizard' window (when it finishes searching) - click 'Yes, I have already connected the hardware', then click Next
    scroll to the bottom of the list of 'Installed hardware', and click on 'Add a new hardware device', then click Next
    click 'Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced), then click Next
    click 'Have Disk...', and browse to and select the edited machine.inf file
    scroll down in the list of 'Common hardware types', and click on 'System devices', then click Next
    under 'Manufacturer' on the left, select '(Standard system devices)'
    under 'Model' on the right, select 'Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator'
    click Next

    Once the installation is finished, and the Device Manager shows the Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator under 'System devices', the audio should now work (no reboot required).

    Then check out this link (even though they are refering to imac):

    Boot Camp Drivers for iMac (Early 2009) | Command-Tab

    This may also point you in the right direction although its the same problem, but with windows 7

    Great to hear..... Please post how you solved the problem, for future reference for myself, and for anyone else who has the same problem.
    Also, please add you MBP specs, version of OS X, bootcamp, and XP that you have.
    Thanks
