One thing you need to realize is laptops cannot use generic drivers.... they must use specific drivers from the laptop maker, not from Intel or not from some site that Google finds..... OR.... they can use special "hacked for laptops" drivers. If Packard-Bell (the manufacturer) doesn't offer the driver you need, it's probably because they don't support this laptop model in Windows XP. It's strange that you didn't say what the original OS was. Any attempt at trying to install a generic driver will result in what you have been experiencing.... eg: a failed install.

Check these sites out (they specialize in "hacked for laptops" drivers):
