    If you can find out a motherboard model number you can get the drivers from the mobo mfg's site, or if you know the compaq model number, then you can likely get drivers from compaq, since compaq likely has a driver download section on their site for it. Also, you'll have to find out the make/model of other hardware, like modems, nic's, graphics cards, etc. You can get drivers for those devices from their manufacturers site, if the mfg is retutable anyway.
