Need the right Compaq Deskpro 2000 Internet keyboard driver
Posted on 2002-05-16
I just got a Compaq Deskpro 2000, 200Mhz computer.
Don't ask WHY I am using this old beast (lack of money mostly), it's been enough trouble getting it's quanky BIOS to accept ONE reasonable sized (8.5Gb) hard drive, and now a 2nd similar one.
There doesn't seem a way to access CMOS SETUP, unless there is a REALLY major new bit of hardware attached. (F10 only works THEN, & forget DELETE. BIOS is V2.12.025B COMPAQ).
Anyway it came with a really spiffy Internet Keyboard (and NO driver for it).
I've found several on the web at Drivers' sites, but they are either too recent (the SP13509 driver - that's for Win 98 and won't run) or too old (the SP11747 driver).
I am running Win95 so the driver needs to work under it.
I'm going to upgrade to Win ME later, though it's iffy if the old 200Mhz CPU can handle it.
Please supply drivers for Win95 AND Win ME. I'll put the points up to 200 for the trouble.
It has the old style serial connection to the computer.
Here are all the identifying marks & numbers on the keyboard:
Replace with Compaq spare part number: 387084-B33
[the above two numbers are to the right and beneath "Replace with Compaq spare part number:" so take your pick!] Then below all:
There is no FCC number.
On the FRONT there are keys to the left for running the music CD drive,
to the right there is a button with a printer icon on it; a button with a rocket; buttons to control sound volume and a SLEEP button.
In the Centre are buttons with icons:
Mail; People; Q; I, magnifying glass; light bulb, and shopping cart.
The SP11747 driver enables all these keys EXCEPT the buttons with the icons:
Printer; People; Q (what on earth is THAT for?; the light bulb; and the shopping cart.
They would all be very handy, and would all be programmable with the right driver.
