Dont know what to make of this, but no parts from a notebook will fit a desktop the cpu (processor) size physically is to small and the memory sticks are physically to small so is the motherboard.im assuming he is running xp so the drivers wont match anyway.as for 64 bit and 32bit check your documentation and if need be do a factory restore.
hope this helps

My hp compaq g62 suddenly run slow when power cord is removed and it runs slow too on battery after some time


The processor is designed to gear down when you switch to battery mode to conserve power, this way the rechargeable battery last another 30% longer at least.

Hi, i own compaq presario CQ42 369TU laptop, how do i increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 or higher ?


For Windows XP...

1.
Open Display in Control Panel.
2.
On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.
3.
When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.
4.
Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.

If you cannot set it any higher than 1024x768 and you have already installed the video drivers, that is as high as it can go for your hardware.

HI, I have a very old compaq cmputer{15 yrs} and cannot download any flash adobe or WI-FIRE. Not very good at piecing things together. Thanks


Educated guess:

That would put the machine at around 1996. Maybe running Windows 95 or 98 on some very old hardware (Pentium 200 MHz MAX).

Even if you could download flash there would not be a version available for your OS anymore.

Sorry, but At 15 years old my best suggestion would be to retire the box and replace it. There is really nothing meaningful you can do with it in today's environment.

The example box below is circa 1995.


Compaq Presario model 5528
The Compaq Presario line was very successful for Compaq. The Presario Model 5528 came with a one-piece integrated monitor and CPU, Intel Pentium processor, 75 MHz, 16 Mb RAM, 34Kb Modem, CD ROM drive, and built in speakers.

I just bought Compaq Presario CQ42 which black in color (i don't know the model exactly). i have a problem with the touchpad. i want to lock it but i didn't find the button and i don't know how to lock or...


Underneath the Laptop is a Users Label marked Model it should give the FULL model No. - e.g. Presario CQ42-100 - HP made something like 150 different models for the Presario CQ42 !!! so you can see, I'm going to have to guess about this...
If your Touchpad has a black(?) dot in the top left corner - tap this once to turn the Touchpad off while you are typing.
Touch it again, to turn it back on.
Other Presarios' have a switch nearby to do this...
