    So I now have the computer, a pair of speakers, the mouse and a keyboard thanks to @Antec713.
    I'm still looking for a monitor if anyone finds one in their travels.
    Cheers Trev

    And another huge thankyou to @Antec713 for talking me through the restore procedure for the Compaq. It's not as simple as you'd think. It now has its original software installed.

    glad i could help. and thanks for the copy of the quick restore cds! its definitely not easy with a blank hdd had to speak to one of my dads mates who was a Compaq technician back in the day and gave me the special commands for writing the recovery to a blank hard drive but it will be a lot easier in the future doing factory recovery just do it through the cd and press 4 as the recovery partition system_sav is restored to the hdd.
