problem installing drivers nano

i bought a nano on eBay and when it got here i thought the drivers would install the same was as my arduino Leonardo. but when i go into device manager and point windows towards the drivers folder, it comes up with the error: Windows could not find the driver software for your device. the POW led is on and the L led is flashing. i am using a Nano V3.0 - ATmega328.

if anyone has any ideas i would be very grateful :)

i just tried it and it still hasn't helped any other ideas? :~

Windows could not find the driver software for your device.

Are you still getting this same error message when you connect Nano to USB port?

In the Arduino IDE, do you get any options when you click on Tools - Serial Port?

when i plug the Nano in it doesn’t do anything. i can only see that ive plunged it in when i go to device manager and it says its a usb 2.0 serial device. when i look in the arduino IDE it cant find any serial ports.
