I am a native speaker of English, but I haven't a clue what you're
asking.  What exactly do you mean by "pin down"?  What do you mean
by "smeared"?  (I assume you *don't* mean that your child smeared his
peanut butter and jelly sandwich all over it, but I don't know what
you *do* mean.)  And if you're only
using it as a print server anyway, who cares?  Would you be so kind
as to explain in less techno-slang terms exactly what the problem is and
exactly what you are trying to accomplish.  I have an old laptop too,
with an LCD screen and a neomagic 2160 chipset.  So I'm familiar
with the hardware.  But I still have no clue what you are talking
