Ping: Ben Myers by William R. Walsh
I realize it's been ~4 years, and the only explanation I have is that I was feeling nostalgic, remembering better times in alt.sys.pc-clone.compaq, wandering through the Google Groups archives when the subject of one of your messages struck me as interesting. On November 2nd, 2004 at 8:17 PM,...

Hi group. I'm concidering flashing 'up' the BIOS in my Presario 5030 using a non- compaq one. (YES, I know this is no-no, and immoral etc) But I imagine this will give me greater control over the PC. However, as you can imagine, I wonder what motherboard this model has. What I know: It has an...

Max Presario 5660 Memory by lwags
Well, it wasn't 3x256. Looks like the 3x128 or 384 is the max. Bought 3 256 sticks and no luck. I think I have the latest BIOS, but have you ever tried to find an update? Impossible. $280 down the drain unless I can return.

Help: Compaq DeskPro Won't Stay Off by Darren Harris
I have a Compaq PC that has a tendency to turn itself back on, regardless of how I shut it down. Sometimes it turns itself back on immediately, as if I hit the restart, and sometimes I'd find it on upon returning back from another room, the store, from work, or even waking up. Does this happen to...
