Compaq Portable III questions

Discussion in 'IBM' started by The Eighth Doctor, Jul 25, 2005.

  1. Hello from the Eighth Doctor
    I have here a Compaq Portable III that I want to upgrade. The company, before the
    merger, gave me strange information regarding who was supporting that model after
    they had officially discontinued them.

    I'd like to find out the maximum sized hard drive that model can use, and where I
    can find the memory upgrade boards that were supposed to be available. Also what
    releases of DOS would run there after 3.3. If any of this is unclear please feel free to
    ask.

    Don't know anything about that computer, but if it can run MS-DOS
    v3.3, it probably can run v6.22 too (or whatever version that was the
    final before Win95 arrived).
