Compaq Presario 4220

  rioboy 12:51 12 Feb 2003

Have just finished talking to Compaq/HP helpdesk (and they were very courteous). I still have an old Presario 4220 desktop running 95. I keep it as a spare and for posterity!! I have lost/mislaid the quick restore disk that had the OS and drivers on. Compaq have none left and because Microsoft don't support 95 anymore they can't get any more. Bit of a long shot but does anyone know where I might be able to pick one of these Quick Restore disks up from?

your luck may be in here - - -I have an old system, a 4122 I think, can't be too different to your old one. This was originally a p150, 16mb RAM, 2.5 Gig HD partitioned, had w95 with one of those phone answer machine thingies. Have upgraded this far beyonf the usefullness of this restore disc, yours for the askin if its any use

That's fantastic TBH1. The 4220 I have is a 166 processer,16 meg of RAM and a 2.1 gig hard drive. (cost £1100 back in '97!!!). I'd be willing to try your disk if it's OK with you. E-mail me on my username and we'll sort out the necessary's.

ain't forgot you mate - - - still looking for it, have it somewhere I know. I have found the little book thingy though, this mentions the systems it is relevent to and yours ain't on it - 3000 ( I think, 4100,4400 and loads more but not 4200 . Still maybe better than nothing and will endevour to sort out for you. Have also found a floppy with a 'BIOS update' thing on it - - will send that too.
