After checking Hp's website for drivers, I find that particular laptop only supports Windows Vista, XP and 2000. So that may be the problem right there.
You have a couple of options here, one is use the drivers for Vista - bit specific and install in compatibility mode. Another option is to find the product specs page for the make and model laptop and find what make cd/dvd drive they used and go directly to that manufacturers website for the driver.
