The CD-Rom on my sons compaq w/XP home stopped working. He recently decided to get DSL only to discover that the CD does not work so he can't use the disk from Qwest. We tried several things last night but I discovered so many problems that we did a system restore. Do we need to let everything...

I have a Sony CRX100E/X2 External USB CD-RW Drive that I have not used in some time. Recently I chose to give that hardware to an out of the country friend that needed a CD burner. The problem was that I could not find the original Spressa software that came with that CD-RW drive. When I started...

Compaq Chipset Drivers for DL585 Under Windows 2000? by Will
Of most interest to me right now is where do I find the USB drivers for the DL585. I download and tried the AMD OPTera 8000 series chipset drivers, but the PCI hotplug driver from that install hangs the system and corrupts Windows 2000 to boot (blue screen on reboot). If anyone has tips on what...

Deskpro EP hard disk replacement by Pat
The hard disk on my DeskPro EP (300Mhz Celeron) died and I would like to replace it. I'll probably look for something off of eBay, but I'm not sure what to look for in terms of specs. The original drive was 4.3GB, although I wouldn't mind something larger. Would any 4.3 GB drive work? Could I...

Presario R3000: Unsupported Network Device Found by Tom Betters
My daugther has a Compaq Presario R3000 notebook. It came with an integrated Broadcom based mini-pci wireless-G card. Because I use an Atheros based router (DLink Di-624) I would prefer an Atheros card. The speed is much higher when Atheros to Atheros rather than Broadcom to Atheros. I have...

Do you like Norton SystemWorks Pro? by Steve
Hi, I've seen the full retail 2003 version for sale for as low as $15 including one year of updates (but without printed manuals, they're in electronic form on CD) and as much as I realize the average mass consumer software packages can be clumsy if not ineffectual this seems like a decent price...

DeskPro won't boot from floppy. by Lukus
I got my hands on a few Compaq DeskPro 6000 (Pentium Pro 200) computers. After going thru about 20 of them, I have about 6 of them that won't boot from the floppy disk. If I install a hard drive and set it all up with the Diagnostic Partition and Windows 98 SE, I have no problem booting and...

Downloading Music/Windows ME by Von Fourche
So I go to the new Napster website and it says Napster doesn't support my operating system - Windows Millennium. Last week I go to that Apple i-toons site and it says it supports Windows XP and 2000 or something, but no mention of Windows ME. So how in the heck am I supposed to start paying for...

I'm taking a look at a friends Compaq for him and I'm having some problems. I personally haven't made the jump to XP yet (I'm saving for a completely new system) so I'm not sure if there's an XP workaround for this or not. He said that the computer just shut down on it's own and he heard strange...

Deskpro 4000S HD&CD Upgrade by Adam Richardson
Hi All, I've got a trusty old DeskPro which I'd like to put a new HD and CDWR in since they're pretty cheap... Can anyone tell me if it matters what drives I get? Are there limitations which mean a new drive won't work? E.g. can I put an EIDE HD in there? Thanks a lot,

Presario 4180 HDD troubles by Mike Calkins
Did you use the same IDE cable in the other boxes? If not, it might be the cable. Otherwise, try moving the hard drive to a different power supply connector, I'd also check all drive power supply leads for proper voltage levels. I prefer to check the voltage levels when a drive is not plugged...
