The new keyboard will function just fine without installing "drivers". Try it.

It sure looks like you already have a problem with this keyboard, it types in only CAPS.

If your old keyboard was a generic type without any special features, I wouldn't worry about any pre-installed drivers. You are likely running off standard Windows drivers. Just load up the new software if needed, or simply let Windows supply its drivers.
