Troubleshooting Proprietary Compaq PC
I operate a small computer repair service. Many of my customers have Compaq computers needing service or repair. I have found that Compaq is very proprietary. I have a third party diagnostic diskette that Compaq PCs will not allow to load into memory. Also, the cabling for the CD-ROMs and the floppy drives will not allow subbing a standard drives into the system. Is there a way around these problems, other than buying Compaq replacement parts? Compaq parts are 3 to 4 times more expensive than standard repalcement parts. Do you know of any third party troubleshooting tools and/or replacement parts that will work for the Compaq desktop type PC? Also, do you know of any troubleshooting books that would address this problem.
