That's probably your card reader.
As David said, post your laptop's model so we can help.

HTH,

Go to Device manager|drivers | select "update" driver |specific location the windows\system32\drivers folder.

OR

if you have old backup, than check for a folder that contains all the drivers.

OR

Install latest driver for windows 8 should also work.

All the A200 I found had Texas Instruments card readers and drivers for it only up to Windows 7.

Haven't found a Windows 8/8.1 official driver for it, sorry.

If you don't want to use your card reader, sure.
