Burner problem by Beowulfie
I've got a Presario 5008sr and I just added a dvd/cd burner. The player seems to work ok and the reader loaded the software fine but when I tried to burn a short dvd with some clips I had it ended in error. I also added 256 memory to the 128 that I already had. I was using Nero 3 that came with...

New hard drive setup by Bernard Carlton
Thanks to HH and his FAQ posts. It convinced me to not try a Gigabyte BIOS upgrade to my Presario 5460 to allow use of a new 80GB drive. I did have to get a bigger power supply than the puny 95watt one which came with the machine. I did go with an added PCI EIDE card and the install went...

Installing ScSi CD to deskpro XL 5100 by Bevin B.
Hi, I'm trying to install Win98 on this system. It currently has no OS. I wondered why my Win 98 boot CD could not install the CD drivers, then discovered that it is because this is a SCSI cd! So I was assured these were the drivers I needed, and loaded them onto the root directory...

Video drivers for old Compaq by Bevin Breitkreuz
Hi, I acquired an old Compaq Presario 1621 laptop from a company that was throwing it out, of course they wiped the hard drive and had no install/restore CDs, etc. for it. I put Win 98 SE on it but the generic video drivers are terrible. I searched the net for the drivers and found ones by...

Changing Processor on Compaq R3000 by bhalper
I have a year-old R3240US, which uses the 3200+ AMD 64. The system runs like a blast furnace when I run any game on it. Is there a lower-powered version of the processor that can replace the current one? Certainly some of the newer AMD chips use less power, but I'm not sure what's compatable.

special HP buttons on keyboard not responding by Big Crunch
I have an HP Compaq d330 desktop computer. It comes with a keyboard with special buttons above the function keys used to launch email, browser, search engine, etc. It was working fine before my hard drive crashed, but after I tried to reinstall everything I can't get it to work. Any ideas?

USB by Big T
If you do get the USB connection to work but the phone does not, it could be that the pc's usb type is older than what the camera requires. Just wanted to throw that out.

computer noise by bigschnibbs
I have replaced my Dell computer with a Compaq Presario SR1730Z, with an AMD 3400 processor. It seems to be louder and sqeaks more than the Dell was, and the web pages seem to load up slower. Anyone else have this problem? Also, how does one open up the case to clean out the dust ?
