Try this location, you will have to hunt around unless you know exactly
which product you have.

Try going to www.compaq.com and downloading the display driver for you
particular computer.

VMS is for the minicomputers NOT PC's.
The numbers that you supplied is the configuration of the PC.
As Happy says goes to the www1.hp.com page he mentions, and choose your
language from the bar

but before look at your Pc. What is the serial number ? Can you find it on
the back/bottom ?
You may need to know the configuration code (the middle 4 characters of the
serial number)
What is the exact model , like, Deskpro EN 4000
enter it here
and it will describe software you need to download.

Also note -- is it a Deskpro DESKTOP or a WORKSTATION ? Look here

enter the serial number here
The number that you entered is the configuration of the PC.
