    Probably one of Compaq's own. What are you planning on doing with it?

    What are you going to do with a 10 year old computer? I don't even think you can buy parts for it.

    dam thats an oldy, open it up, some where you'll see a a sticker on the motherboard, or it might be etched in board/side of the case

    now i believe most of them were shipped out with a AMD Duron
    microATX motherboard
    if you mother board is perfectly square (9.6" by 9.6 was the measurement, or it could have been 10 by 10) then thats what you have
    =====================================
    if its more like a rectangle (8 by 11 or 8 by 12) then its the less common AMD mini-ATX

    proof that these old data base books in my room do come in handy!!
