Booting from CD-ROM on Compaq systems by Howard Kaikow
I've got an old Compaq Deskpro 66M that I received in January 1993. It does not seem to allow for booting from CD-ROM. OK, that's fine. When did Compaq first release systems that could boot from CD-ROM? -- http://www.standards.com/; See Howard Kaikow's web site.

The built into the screen microphone doesn't seem to do anything: if I try to record, the sound recorder utility's "virbrating line" remains dead throughout the test. If, on the other hand, I use an external mic, it all works well. No volume controls are muted...

If I select the fastest speed (i.e. no delay), that's too fast because I get skips (unwanted spaces) when I'm doing ordinary typing. If I set the slider one notch...
