Hello I am posting this message for a friend. He has a old IBM laptop
which works okay but I cannot seem to find any drivers for the USB port
on the base that you can connect the laptop to. The model numbers I am
unsure of, I looked and could not find any. Help needed. Thank you.

1). First check is taht REAL usb (I'll have seen one with socket like USB
but without "gold straps - on it" ...somth. like FAKE-USB :)  )
2). If it has "gold straps" , then it is electrically connected , find what
chipset do ytou have in this laptop (Ibx440/zx440 etc.) , connect to Intel
webpage and there (i hope that you have intels chipset) find "aplication for
all" , somthing like multiuse aplic. that has drivers for this chipset.
3). Check if it is turned on in BIOS.
