I bought this computer about 3 years ago, and I'm just now getting around to upgrading it.

I have a question about it, I plan on putting another gig into the system, I'd also like to put a new video card in there, and that's what my question is about, I need to know with the spec's of this computer if it supports this video card:

  1. Open it up.

    If it has a brownish colored slot, that's the AGP slot and where your card will go.

    Since its a HP it might not have one.

    It probably only has 2 slots for RAM also, so make sure to get a 1 gig stick.
  2. Does anyone know where I can find a recovery disk for this exact model. I looked on the HP site but they don't sell them anymore. I dont know why but they dont. They did a few months ago but now they're not available. I've been searching the internet all night but can't find anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
  3. Recovery disk bad, XP disk good.

    Do you want to install all that junk preinstall crap from HP?

    Borrow someones copy of XP and use your key.
    At worst you'll have to phone activate it.

    Burn the LAN driver on a CD or usb drive.
  4. How exactly would I go about doing this? What key do I have? And I dont know about this LAN driver thing.
