w8000 a very old PC not supported by HP.
windows 2000 support ended like 15 years ago.. W2k. is gone. w2k only runs on very old pcs with very old ACPI
(power controls is that)

this PC is only supported with XP
never 2000.
HP tells you that if you looked.
park the 2000 disk or use it as frezzbee. IMO


id get w7 disk and use that, it might work.
but will cost you a license from MS,
about 5 times the value of w8000

why not just go here, and get used $20 w7 pc
save a bundle of case and grief messing with any legacy junk....avoid legacy junk and win.

AGP is a junk PC.
sorry but why play with old old iron like this/

post the PC under test, full model

long hand. form... i will try and fail.
HP ProLiant ML330 Base ATA Module 230541-001

its and old IDE, PATA drive controller,why use this?
PATA is DEAD tech.
you can not put a Proliant card in any PC.
no PC stated at all just PC on of 10,000 made in 36 years.

i tried to turn off video what, add a noun here,please.

well NO PC stated, but remove the AGP card,
then there no GPU CHIPS, THEN...
then add that proliant card, see that it fails
that carD is for server running server BIOS.
mixing server parts , with home products will not work.

that card proliant has BIOS of its own and is only for PROLIANT servers period, best i know..

why not find PC that is 10 years and newer for near nothing,, in the USA PCs are in GLUT status.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 12, 2017

no PC stated , it as a full model name like Cq56-nnnnnn
no OS stated
there 1st page in there web site clearly states and I quote

Windows 8 and higher (32-bit version).

took me 1second to look

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 10, 2017

C61 what it has a full name never use just the prefix
100,200,300 or 400, yes 4 generations.
what OS< we can not ever guess Op.sys you run ever.
I guess you meant WINDOWS PW????? not BIOS?

hp can help best why ask here we are not HP, at all, just chat bs.
my guess its XP, and is easy to hack.

if you wanted you could google this, ever google.
type," how to reset XP passwords"

bingo, like 1million answers, from 17 long years of hacking that.
we can hack them all up-to w81. not 10.
the model 100 had VISA and w7 offered then, and now.
if hacking is no fun (sure endless virus those places )
ask HP< they might help you. most do.

Not yog, YOKE. The part with all the coiled wired that slips over the end of the crt. The part will be VERY difficult to locate because the CRT's are no longer manufactured, so neither are the parts for the crt such as the yoke. In any event, if you do find one, it is a pain in the ....to replace as you must completely re-align the picture after you change it. Not really a do-it-yourself thing ig you don't understand how that process works. It's usually a 2 or 3 hour job, plus the part, so really with the cost of the new monitors being so low and the incredible picture on the new ones? It's really not worth repair.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 02, 2017

no PC stated, no MODEL (the service tag on the bottom tells you)
nor any OS stated, operating, system (the boot screen gives that away. windows 98.NT,2000,XP,Vista, W7,w8,w10?????

what does the screen look like, here.
BIOS PW protected.??
or is the Microsoft login screen>?
for the PW , backdoor fix. ask here. real HP is here.

for Microsoft, you will need to show photos of the screen
Windows, version all but W10 have easy hack for password.
Windows 10 , not so... (MS says reload OS to fix that , with F11 key)

for order version, ask at the same site above, for hacks.

what compaq use real models numbers clearly.
panel sounds desktop like.
ever heard of PC repair shop.
we have
1.1 Bilion Computers. on earth now.
guess what , vast numbers of shops with certified technicians
every where, on earth, were there are people.

is the screen dead, ? no text ever, and BIOS dead.
if a desktop the PSU is dead.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

is this a desktop or laptop? my guess, desktop with windows 95
an antique if ever.
why play with 486 pc, is this for fun ,kicks or pure pain'
why, name one good reason.?
the books are gone now. at HP and google finds none.
why not go the BIOS screen see that now.
then read off whos bios it is, Pheonix>?or AMI, Award, and more.
who's is it?
then read the version, with that we can get you a matching relic BIOS book on just that one BIOS.
there is no other way.... oops but its over 15 years old.... oops.
even 22 years old possible, wow, you are like first one here ever post this old. pc.
all modern PC have a hot key for BIOS>

the oldest pc like this has no hot key for BIOS,
it must run setup.exe program to configure BIOS.
why in the world mess with this old junk pc when you can buy f
for $20 a used pC only 10 years old. why?
this so confusing, where are you, we are in USA and are in glut status in used pC.

we have the GOODWill for that and $20 you are rich here.
even less !

I the USA we send your PC to the trash and and other guy pulls it and send it to GOLD reclamation. yah, its worthless cept for tiny bits of gold....

here is the old relic rules


there are only 2 ways,
Hot keys, if applicable then , hot keys happened later in evolution then,
and a setup program, from a floopy or on a hidden HDD partition
i bet long long go lost.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

wow what a complex post.
why not tell a story, use notepad, and type it and paste it here so we can see whats UP?
what are you attempting, seems the Projector is dead, right>
what cable, did you use a short direct VGA cable.
is it VGA> seems yes, you said, Fn-F4 so is VGA
my guess is its custom long cable you made bought or?
what does this line mean.???
With my Desktop is not problem!

i can not understand any of this , and ive run projectors 100s even 1000s of feet, in airports and other huge , venues.

my guess is you do not understand video and its limits.
you can not send high resolution to a old projector
and windows 10 does not run low reso. unless force
windows 10 does not run old obsolete displaces or chips at all.
now.. they are obsolete... i can list 1000s dead now... can.
The DLP projector is a very cool thing,Texas Instruments based magic.
but is old and has 1024 x 768 native resolution
so to get that to work with XP,.W7, W8 or W10
the latter is most hard, as W10 does not work and low reso.
(means not automatically work)
you have to force it.
(btw, in say xp/w7 go to safe mode F8 and force low reso.)

to do that SAY< in w10, you'd rigth click your desktop screen
go to settings then advanced display settings
click screen pick display setting, at bottom of that screen pick advance settings.
then pick above reso.
i just did and screen goes SQUARE 4:5 mode.
ugly by todays standards.
not plug in the projector and press Fn +F4 bingo, out it goes.
keep in mind some GPU chips many not allow this.
id need to know each chip in each machine used to answer that.
if the projector fails now, then try a regulor desktop monintor now
at the PC under test VGA port does it doe above reso.
yes then the projector has issues.
all this done with short 3'ft standard VGA cable as see on back of
all VGA monitors use that to test and get that work ing before using wild custom cables, unstated by you...
but youve posted before on this setup, have you not.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

if you look at HP , HP owns COMPAQ, lock stock and barrel.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

compaq day, endless posts... endless dead old PC's
who owns this old junk and why?
no LT stated, of the 1000s
no OS stated , XP?" what?

ever heard of photos, take a picture post it so folks can see reality?
all PCs break all do and often and LT vastly more often, its portable and that breaks them faster. x10.

what PC< we cant guess PC hear
LT ran at HP from 1984 to now. vast types, and compaq to.
simple tests.
1: ;runs ok with battery out , BINGO !!!! battery number 1 failure.
2: lent, lent packs vents overheats and CPu and GPU go NUTS.
all puters do this if not cleaned 1 time per year, all do. its called servicing the PC .
3: bad power pack of power is weak the electronics goes NUTS.
4: does the external VGA jack work to a external screen. yes/no.?
5: is this a 2008 Laptop with the GPU SOLDER BALL FAILURES?

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

never ever post phones or email online, wow, that was a big mistake, doing that. and i tried to delete it and cant.. for you.... DO SO NOW YOUR SELF, or bad happens,from this....
BTW this is NOT HP, sorry, its just a silly chat room generic.

desktop or laptop????
who's CD???????? made by WHOM?
what computer (service tag full name) like CQ52-1234us..
what OS? windows WHAT? pray not XP.... it's a virus magnet.

we can not guess, what is wrong, what you own or what CDs you have in your hands ,ever , it must be said (or photos?)

error one, is deleting software HP put there.
you will FAIL, ( can but know which easy pieces does and its importance)
do you now that some software relies on other software.?
"dependencies" like removing a foundation in your home.


iS PC over 10 years old, they go back to 1984, why must I guess.
>=10year old answers. (i can tell you with model number)

if your PC is HP, the F10 or F11 key works
the magic recovery HP hot key, you press that at, power on.
then it goes to RECOVERY MODE>
fix startups files, or do a full restore.
this will fail of the HDD is bad, or someone used NON HP CD's
to install the OS before.
if that is true, is it?>
then we use the REAL HP disks , from HP, not disks YOU MADE ON A BURNER.

most old COMPAQs had no F10./F11 key. they didnt have that magic, then. some are 15 years old.

IF you get it to work, stop deleting files, now.

the REFORMAT can kill dead the F10/F11 restore partitions
so.... im betting it did.

post what PC is is first and we can go step by ittybitty step.
no problemo,

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

good day!
did you give it 24hrs to finish a charge?
the PC has a charging chip inside.
new battery from whom>?
the line pack is not a charger its line power pack,
it converts 120vac (or 240 outside usa) to 19vdc.(Or your spec)
the 19vdc runs the PC perfectly with no battery installed DOES IT>
that is the first test. the power pack must be the the correct pack
current (never lower spec)
and watts.
if not the correct power pack it will now work correctly
the watts can be higher no problem,

if it runs ok on line power no battery
then we try the battery. (give it 24hrs for stubborn old batteries)
if the power pack is ok, it will charge, (spec pack as HP tells you)
if the battery is bad it will not.
if the charger chip in the PC is bad (MOBO BAD) then it will not

testing takes, skills and tools, one tool is a voltmeter
lacking that tool, one can only guess.
what not get your PC repaired by a TECH.???????

here is your HP page, its non trivial, no>?
see that they have 5 power packs used
that is BECAUSE they HAVE many power levels of CPU/GPU
faster rated CPU'GPU need more power.


you never once said
it runs perfectly on AC power only
not once
nor it does not overheat. nor if the fan works and vents all are free of lent.

desperate , why that? are you in uSA>???? locations matter.!!!
its an old monitor , buy a new one, and end this love of old Compaq's
yous posted with on only the word ribbon, why?
the cable on the outside, is a round heavy VGA cable.
so is not a ribbon
so that tells me you took this old monitor apart, right?
and broke or lost a ribbon?
the only parts for this is used off EBAY.

i looked for you, and see none, its old and now rare. 2001 made.
16 long long years ago, and now forgotten by all..
buy a new monitor, its not work spending case on old things.
see $60 monitors? here in USA>


tell me how can you fix something and beat that price.
lacking parts, is impossible.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jun 29, 2017

never put email here ,ever, or get SPAM endless for 100 years. wow.
this is an English forum.,

here I used google translate for you
quoted and commented:
"I have one problem.
Namely, I need to perform an experiment with temperature measurement using thermopar. ?????????

I plugged the heaters into the HP 3497 acquisition cortex.
I connect this HP via IEEE488 connections to PC via ISA card (iee 488 card).
WE DONT USE ISA card today, in USA> and software for this is hard to find in year 2017,

The problem is that I can not intimidate that card to work under XP.

Do you have any solution?
And do you know a program by which I can read these measurements? I wrote some programs in qbasic.
I installed Labview, but it seems to me that it's quite complex.
I need some simple program, possibly with visualization.

ITS NOT SIMPLE at all to make 488 work.
Thanks in advance

My guess, is you are trying to use HP-IB (IEEE488) communications, cables ( a parallel 2 way comms)
to some ?instruments.? (ask the instrument maker yet)
My guess they are long ago no longer in business or the products are long long gone now.

why not tell the full information on this instrument./?????
makers name, and model #
that takes working software on the PC side.
(drivers for the ISA, and APPS to run it)

the Maker of the instrument would have APP software to run that.
ask them?
if not, you get to write your own software,
and would need the IEEE488 comms library to do that ,and buy it.

you';d also need the book in the instrument in order to learn
the IEEE488, command sets , and address and data forumats.
or its impossible.
