    If your laptop includes an infrared port, you should see in device manager in the port. (right click on desktop, then properties, and device manager...)

    As I think you want to relay a device that has an IR port, you can also walk around to see if your PC detects it. Otherwise, there are small USB-IR available.

    We already know that this is a laptop. This is not what we asked. Give the model of your laptop: HP, Compac, Sony, etc. followed by the model no. This will go on the net what it is made. Bizzare indeed that it is not indicated on the documentation.
