: I have a similar notebook, Versa Pro VA50J, and similar problem with drivers. Yes, it's made for Japanese market only. I searched for support everywhere in the web, but the best I could found were the traces leading on some Japanese sites, like 121ware.com.
I can just advise you to install WinXP, after that you will most likely have only sound and modem not working properly.
