    Replacing the screen of a Compaq Portable 486c

    Very cool, next thing I would like to design and print is the door/flap over the ports on the side of the 486, a lot of the 486's I come across don't have that anymore. This is how far I currently am. Here's an image of the original one that I borrowed from a friend to take measurements:

    Big Boxed PC Games

    When they came out, I played them on the PC's of my father (period 1993-2000, in 2000 I got my own pc ;) ). Back in the day there was something called PC Private Project in the Netherlands, that was an incentive to buy PC's through the company you was working for, for free, with discount or...

    Vintage Compaq Collection Vinpaq

    Hi all, I'm currently busy with collecting Compaq laptops and portables. The collection is limited to the year 2002, after that HP acquired Compaq. I started this collection because of a Friends episode where Chandler boosts about the specs of a Contura. I decided that I wanted that laptop as...

    Replacing the screen of a Compaq Portable 486c

    Very cool to see! How did you manage to click it in? (I even wonder how they did it when it was manufactured, did a lot break?) I would suggest to sand the outside with sandpaper. (first a coarse one to remove the 'steps' and then with a fine grit to get it a bit smooth.) Then paint it in the...

    Looking for software 'Windows For Pen Computing 2.0' for my w95 Compaq Concerto

    Ok, I found out that the pendrivers were included in beta versions of W95 (Chicago). I downloaded one of the latest versions and I found these files in the PLUSPACK folder: Opening the PEN.HLP file confirms that it is about Pen support. Could I simply copy these pen drivers to my windows 95...

    Looking for a Compaq Concerto (front cover)

    Replacing the screen of a Compaq Portable 486c

    Ok, another update. The last version was a bit hard to get in (the axis was too long), so 1 broke. The other feet I sanded the axis and one axis also at an angle. Then it clicked into place and because the 'at an angle' sanded side of the axis is not used when using the feet. As you can see...

    Replacing the screen of a Compaq Portable 486c

    I'm working on some prototypes, had the same problem. This version, the axis are too short. Next one will also have that middle edge. Thanks for those pictures! Next version:

    Big Boxed PC Games

    Hi all, I thought I should share this with you. These were the games I had or wanted to have when I was growing up. (thus defining an otherwise never ending collection) And I think this my most treasured game, Mechwarrior 1

    One of my Compaq's has this, the other not (just an empty space)
