Compaq vs HP by Nate Rosenthal
I know that Compaqs and HPs are pretty much the same. Saw a Compaq 2172 that is comaprable to the HP 4502. In the specs I noticed that the HP had a soundblaster 16 sound card and it wasn't there in the Compaq. Is it in the Compaq or not. One would think that it is, but..... -- Nate Rosenthal

Wondering if anyone has information about the best hard drive replacements for compaq presario laptops. In particular, presario 700US series, and also regarding any compatibility problems experienced when installing new hard drives, not from compaq. Any help would be appreciated.

safe mode by Ned Protter
On my Presario 7922 with Windows 98, AdAware may stall when deleting malware. Presumably, that's because the malware is loaded. AdAware will delete this stuff in the safe mode, but I have trouble starting in the safe mode. I've tried each of the control keys and F8. What could be wrong?

Do Compaq Armada M700s feature Speedstep CPUs? by Neil Barras
I rescued 4 of these systems from an office clearance. There are 2x 500MHz P3s, 1x 650MHz P3 and 1x 600/750. It is this last one that raises the question, because in the BIOS, it is reported as a 750, whilst CPUz reports a 600. What's the reason? Thanks, Neil
