Does this 'blue adapter usb thingy' provide Windows 8.1 drivers?

If not you can try to install the legacy drivers (Using compatibility mode or 'install legacy driver'-feature). Sometimes that works but it would be better to use fitting drivers.

Pretty sure he means one of these:

I think they don't come with Win 8 drivers, so try using the legacy ones.

Even if everyone has these adapters I dont have it so you have to do some work by yourself.

1) find out manufacturer
2) go to its website and look for a downloads section
3) download the highest available driver (preferable win 8 or win 7. WinXP and lower might not work anymore)
4) After downloading right-click on the driver, select preferences.
5) Set compatibility in the compatibility settings to the windows version the driver was made for
6) tick 'Run as administrator'
7) Save/OK

8) double-click on the driver to install and have fun

(as I have said it might not work. If so post again what problems occured)

These adaptors are made by Mayflash:

The specific adaptor doesn't require a driver, but you can take a look here:

Thing with Chinese products is you get what you paid for. Poorly-made and terribly-designed products that barely work.
A friend of mine had tried one out during a live demo at a local mall and the thing barely registered the analog inputs or certain button presses.

It is a piece of junk, honestly.
You're better off with many other options.
--A better adapter
--Getting a cheap DualShock clone controller for PC (which works fine, minus rumble)
--Trying a DualShock 3 wireless with the drivers posted somewhere in the forums. Searching might turn it up.
--Just playing the games on your PS2 if the laser is still working

Can't you downgrade to 8 at the cost of formatting your HDD?
