You should be able to go to the manufacturers web site.

For old joysticks, usually drivers are not provided for them. If they are they will be available on the web site. If they are not, there should be documentation on there that recommends which default windows settings to set your joystick up as. I had a similar problem once and this solved the problem for me.

If the joystick has never worked then it may be because the port is the wrong way round in the motherboard. If the port is the wrong way round, it is usually still picked up by Windows but Windows is unable to communicate with the device.
Typically a 2 button, 2 axis joystick will work fine with the standard drivers included with windows. From control panel. go to gaming options.  Click on the 'add' button and select 2 axis, 2 button joystick from the menu.  Windows should detect your joystick and disply 'OK' under status.  If it does not display OK, then you may have a problem with your midi/joystick port as CDeath indicates, or the joystick may be defective, or your midi/joystick port requires special drivers to operate.
