OK my father gave me his old laptop because he bought a new one and didnt want to deal with the problems the old one had. So heres what I've got so far.

Its a MicronPC Transport LT laptop
It normally comes with a 20GB hard drive, but this one only has (or thinks it only has) 5GB
It normally comes with Windows 2000 but it had Windows XP when I got it.
It normally comes with a Creative Labs SB PCI (cant find anymore info than that, MicronPC sucks [bleep] on support)

I really don't want to bust it open to see if its got a 20 or 5 GB hard drive, is there any other way to find out?

Also I have never been able to get any sound out of the bugger, there is no installed audio hardware in the devices list. And the only drivers I can find are for 2000 or ME, which if I try to experiment with give me this lovely blue screen that says windows is being shut down to prevent damage to the system.

Any ideas?
