Re: My Old Compaq need some kick

you have either

Deskpro Workstation AP240 DESKPRO AP240 or
Deskpro EN - Large Form Factor DESKPRO EN-LFF


2 links below are lists of each model in the range you have, i believe they all use the same motherboard, select your model then choose Download drivers and software

deskpro ap240:
