compaq upgrade question by churdyman
I have a compaq presario 5150. I've upgraded it to a dvd-rom drive, cd-r drive and more memory. Now I need more hard drive space. I can't find 5.25 hard drives but I can get and adapter and just use a 3.5? I want to get 80 gb and put Windows2000 on it. Would it be able to handle those upgrades?

Compaq tablet is a DOG by Tom Scales
I just started a new job and my new laptop is the Compaq tablet. I like the idea of the tablet, but this machine is horrible. The concept and ergonomics are excellent, but what idiot picked the Transmeta Crusoe processor? It is so slow you can watch the menus open in slow motion. Oh, and a 10"...

We had a lightning strike nearby the other day, and I lost the sound on my Compaq 6320US. My old Compaq laptop had a system diagnostic program to test the system hardware, but I can't find one on this computer, or on the support website. I'm running XP Pro. Any ideas?
