    Question ENGLISH information for a Toshiba Dynabook?

    Hi all.

    I have here, a Toshiba Dynabook laptop, designed for the Japanese market. It has Japanese symbols on some of the keyboard keys etc. Thankfully, the BIOS is still in English!!!

    However, can't find any information on it anywhere on Toshiba's site.

    It is model # SS S4/275 PNHW, a 750MHz P3 with 256MB RAM.

    Anyone know where I can find a user-manual and drivers in English?

    There is the Japanese website for these things: www.dynabook.com, but it is all in Japanese, and I'm afraid that I am seriously lacking in my study of that language...

    I found some general info sorta-like a manual by putting

    SS S4/275 PNHW

    in Google and clicking on Translate this Page on one of the results. No luck finding drivers however. Good luck.

    Thanks for the google-translate idea. Using that, I am getting closer:

    Ahh, another successful case of delivering 'fish' the verb rather than 'fish' the noun..
