    Download a little app called bios agent. It will give you more info on your board. It does not install. Just run & exit.

    We would need some more information in order to help you. Try the app Hipster posted, and then post the details here so we can have a look.

    what model of compaq? If you go to HP.com and click on drivers, then enter what model of computer you have it will give you all the updated drivers and bios versions available. (there is a spot for either hp or compaq)
