But unfortunately windows 98 doesnt support its video driver. So please help me to find one, could you upload it for me or give me a link where i coulod download it. Ive been searching for weeks but in vain. Thanks

    Thanks for the advise but the old cd drivers is lost already, the original hdd was broken so i installed a newer one, reformatted it and installed a fresh OS. So even if i go to the device drivers it wont show/give me any useful info, just a pci generic video driver. PLS HELP, thanks

  • sonnyliwanag Feb 28, 2008

    All i can see from its bottom is PC-AP5310, i think its the model #. It has two more PC-5NH03-JE7LE3 and TNB-5900. Did I mention that the laptop was bought in japan years ago, so most of the labeling is in Japanese characters, all i can read is what i typed here.

    Again thanks so much

    thanks for the tip, the viewing area is 4x5 inches since the color configuration has max of 16 colors. I alreday tried to log to hitachi sites but the model is already obsolete. Im just tryiung my luch that someone who have the same laptop might raed this and share his driver with me.

    hope you could help me, as ive said my friends father is pleading to have it fixed

    Thanks again, hope to hear from you soon

I have a Hitachi laptop. most of them have an ATI video chipset. I cant tell you if yours has one, but That is my best guess. (my laptop has 2000- video is plug n play). Good Luck!

Only way to do this, is to have the model number of the video element. go to control panel, then system, then device what type of video is there, then repost it here..

    well..the new os should be current as of the W98 software set, then. The only other option is going down the hitachi door. What's the model number?

    it's entirely possible that the video driver is now obsolete, even with a Japanese company. Does the video NOT work at all?

The amplifier is not working (30 years old). It won't turn on. Most opf the other parts are working if the amplifier was.Is it worth repairing?

Most people decided on that question by how much they liked the sound and the device itself, then comparing it with how much it will cost to repair it.
I would say that if it hasn't any sentimental value or you are not troubled by the sound quality of it when it was working you can safely buy a new one. If you have the cash to spare that is.

If you are fond of it then submit it for repair and ask for an estimate of the cost. You can then decide what to do next.

If you know anyone who is good with electronics then let them check to see if the internal fuse has gone first. That would cost about 20p to fix! If it has and it restores it to life then you might be lucky. If the new one blows again, then that's more serious.
Post the make and model number on here and say "blows fuse". I or other members of Fixya will then help you further.

Watch by serial number

value is only what someone would want to pay for it at that moment. Sentimental has no market value...

nothing available in a brief internet search. I would take it to a watch/jewelry shop for inspection/insurance evaluation. Understand insurance/replacement value is always more than actual street value

I have Sunbeam 'Radiant Contol' TOASTERMATIC toaster. Must be 40 years old - and only recently stopped toasting. Is there anyone who might fix this - I think the radiant coils have burnt out. I live in...

There could a number of reasons why it has stopped working and depending on the problem it could be a simple fix but generally not. It is after all an old toaster as you realise. On the bottom is a model number AT-35 AT-40 or TA-J. It depends on what part is sentimental as the outside and ends and base can be transferred over to a working mechanism. I have a few of these toasters and think they are just great.
