XP on a really old laptop ('99)

OK, I know somebody is going to ask "why would you want
to do that", but think of it as an experiment.

I have an old laptop, a NEC, that can support XP. I
loaded it, and it runs fine, Except. the display is
really small (about 1 inch in on all sides on the LCD
from where it should be. I in display properties, there
is no option for 640X480. I went through the
troubleshooter, and no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.

You would need upgraded video drivers, and I doubt any are available. Check
the NEC web site. If none are available, you will be stuck with the default
video.
