Without a model # it's hit-or-miss with finding a driver. There has to be something written on it.

The file I first asked you to download in this post is the correct one. Burn the file to a CD, or put it on a floppy since it's less then a MB in size. That's of course that the laptop has a floppy drive.

No, just double click the file to RUN it and follow the onscreen prompts.
