[REQUEST] Compaq Presario 1xxx CD Software

edited January 2017 in Offers & Requests
I'm looking for a CDROM bundled with Compaq Presario 1xxx which included a quick restore CD and a bundled software.

This one was of the programs bundled with the OEM software package. It also included, for example a CD player (COMPAQ CD Player), a VideoCD Watcher and a few other applications I can't actually remember right now.

And this is the laptop in which the software CD came. I'm trying to win the bid, but my opponent won't let me have it without a fight.

Sorry I'm not able to help further but it seems there is not much information on the web about it.

Thank you very much for your help.

    I found some software referenced in the webarchive

    The VCD player was probably MediaMatics Arcade MPEG Player

    I also found a working source for Brooktree Wavestream
    ftp://g9t6172.houston.hp.com/pub/softpa ... sp5643.exe

    I have an Armada 1585DMT, and over the course of the last few weeks I have had to refer to th web archive to find the softpaq number for various software and drivers and find working download links, since hp appears to have deleted many of the old softpaq, luckily there are a few redundant copies of the old software on forgotten ftp directories on some of hp's servers in Houston.
  • Oh thank you for your help, but those are not what I was looking for. But don't worry, I managed to find a Compaq Presario Quick Recovery CD which included the software I was looking for.

    Perhaps it could be uploaded to this site. Is there any qualms about doing this?

    Also, the original auction finished a few days ago and I won. So when the time comes when I finally have the laptop in my ownership, I'll ask if the WinWorld site wants the software included.
