I listen to the from my wife every day!
It's a part of the learning process - so I'd suggest taking your lumps from the wife and fixing this anyway (yep, I don't have to be there listening to her!
Here's a couple of things to make the process less painful:
1) Before you start work, backup everything that you can't redo.
2) Ensure that you've got the restore disks/installation disks for the computer (in case it really fouls up). Ifit's a custom build, make sure that you've downloaded the drivers also.
With those 2 things on hand, you can "fix" any software issue that may crop up. Then it's time to start fixing things!
Follow the instructions to the best of your ability from the previous post. Best case, you'll fix it and be the hero. Worst case, you'll bust it and have to reinstall - in which case it should work anyway, so you'll be the hero (but with a lot less hair due to the frustrations of a reinstallation).
Maybe a cheap, second computer with the same OS (Windows XP) would be a good test bed for you? That way you can "play" with it to see how to do it - then you can work your wonders on the primary system without any unforseen issues.
