The parallel port driver is generic so you can get it off any Windows 95 system, if you have another. On the PCMCA it depends on the make and model--can you provide those?

Thanks for responding and helping me with this issue.  I do not have a windows 95 installation disk and the customer came yesterday and said he decided not to spend the amount of money that it would take to have this laptop repaired (The screen needs replacing also).
So I am going to close out this session and again, thanks for your help.  I did gain some knowledge though your help.
