It's an Intel chipset so start by installing the appropriate intel chipset installation utility.

Believe it also uses an intel graphics chip so check the intel site for a

Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family Video Driver for XP.

For your DVD the only thing I can find is this:

When you say it doesn't work do you mean it doesn't read or doesn't write or both?
