More than likely it is your power supply that is bad. However, if the location where you stored it had the potential of being damp and humid, then you may need to replace the motherboard.

To replace the power supply, first you need to open your case and look for the power supply. It is the device that you plug the power cord, from the wall, into. Remove the power supply and read the label to find out the wattage, then replace with a power supply that has similar wattage. You also need to pay attention to the form factor. If you have a standard sized tower, you will probably need and ATX or micro-ATX.

Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

My compaq prasario is telling me I have no ip address how can i solve this problem i cannot connect to the internet


How are you connecting to the Internet now¿ That is a serious question since I will assume that this is a second computer hooked up to the same connection you want with the Presario. I also will assume that you don't have a Gateway / Router between the modem and the actual computer. I will assume that you want both of these computers on the Internet at the same time so you will want to hook up the Gateway. To reset the modem so that it will accept a different MAC Address (It's a computer thing) you will need to remove all the connections to the modem and pull out the battery that is behind a hidden door. The modem will need to be in this condition for 1 minute and then it can be hooked up to the new Gateway or Computer however you want it to be hooked up now that the modem has been reset. Good luck.

Graphic card for compaq 8ooo series


I'm assuming it's a Compaq Presario 8000. The 8000 series has several sub-models such as the 8000T, 8000A, etc. The 8000A has several sub-sub-models.

The 8000T has an 8x AGP slot so you will be limited to either a PCI or AGP 8x video card.

You haven't stated your budget or what kind of games you play (solitaire or Word of Warcraft, etc...).

This card is the top rated AGP video card on NewEgg:
