✔ Best Answer
What size hard drive and RAM.
With a larger than standard hard drive it may run XP but not well. As for Vista or Windows 7, forget it.

Stay with Windows 98. The computer doesn't have the resources for anything more modern.

According to Crucial, the max amount of RAM your laptop can handle is 512MB. That's enough to run XP (but not well) but definitely not enough for anything newer. A lightweight version of Linux might be an option but only if you max out the RAM.

With a maximum memory of 512 MB, I wouldn't even bother and it's not worth investigating further. I prefer at least 1 GB and ideally 2 GB, and that's with adjusting to performance over stylish interface settings.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
