bill I think you missed the boat altogether.

Replying to a real old thread, plus owning a Compaq, plus it being an old one.

Read some PC World magazines and do yourself a favour and update your computer.. Possible read through a few threads here before you buy one.

Agreed, it would have been better to start a new thread.

But you're not asking for advice on new comps, but help with an old one. Heaps of people still have PIII's.

I'd suggest finding what exact model number you have and typing it into google. Compaq may have stopped supporting it, but you'll probably find that you can still find them on driver device sites.

The model number should be somewhere on the chassis, or failing that, try to find a number on the motherboard.

Failing that install SIW or Belarc which when run will give you lots of info like your motherboard number, CPU etc

I have moved the new posts from the completely random old thread where it was posted to this new thread.

welcome bill
Wants wrong with using old hardware and further more there's nothing wrong with compaqs. All the Hps and Compaq's Ive owned have been nothing but reliable and I've worked on more other brand pcs than I have Hps or Compaqs.

On the mother board there will be some numbers could you post those back here or give the model of the compaq.

Thank you

The HP website (http://www.hp.com/) still has drivers for old Compaq machines. Either search by model name or drill down through the various options for desktop PCs in the menu.
