You need to install the drives for the graphics card and the sound card by the looks of it.

Whats the laptop spec or make and model?

The drivers maybe on the Notebook disk. Right click each item in the device manager that has a yellow exclamation mark, select update driver and then see if it'll install the drivers from the notepad disc.

I can't find a spec on that Notepad anywhere. You might want to contact Novatech to see if they can give you a spec sheet or driver disk.
