Hello PC Advisors and those who can help, I have an obsolete model of PC which is Packard Bell iMedia 1517, recently reinstalled Windows XP 2002 SP3 but when trying to find the Multimedai Driver (e.g. Audio file in particular) unable to do so as my model no longer around - and google not much of a help,

Packard Bell website is as useless as my sound - please help!!!

Go here, select desktop (if it's that) select iMedia then you need to select what model number ie, PT.U03-PV.U03. You should get your drivers for XP there.

It looks older that what's provided. What model number is your 1517?

Have a look at this. You should have an idea of the age of the PC. Hunt for audio driver. If you're not sure what the driver is then copy and paste to a search engine.

You can run Belarc or SIW to find out what audio chip you have.
