Packard Bell EasyNote mx37 driver

I have a Packard Bell EasyNote mx37 which i have formatted and installed XP on. it was running Vista before and the sound worked fine, however now i have no sound. i have no driver for the soundcard and I cannot find a driver that will install properly, i have checked the PB website and they only offer drivers for vista machines
