My fathers friend own a very old hitachi latop, pentium processor 200mhz, can only accomodate win98, i repalced the harddrive for itwas already malfunctioning. Upon the instalklation of the win98, the video driver is not supported. I tried to search it from the HITACHI site but since its an old laptop supports are not available. It came from japan so the readable model # is PC-AP5310. The viewing area is 4x5 inches since the color configuration has max of 16 colors. Im just tryiung my luck that someone who have the same laptop might read this and share his driver with me.
hope you could help me, as ive said my friends father is pleading to have it fixed

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP
->PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended ->128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended
->1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space* ->Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor ->CD-ROM or DVD drive ->Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device **Note if you are using the minimium hardware configurations your old Laptop will be very slow.
Upgrading your OS ie Win98 -> WinXP
1. You have to check if your old laptop whether it has any additional RAM slot for additional RAM. (Many older Laptops only have intergrated RAM built-in on the the mainboard).
2. Download the necessary XP drivers from the Manufacturer sites or do a search for the devices on the net.
