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.
