Can anyone help me determine the exact model number of an old Compaq Deskpro 4000 desktop (not tower) system?

When it boots, all it says is "Compaq Deskpro 4000" in the bottom right corner of the screen.

The only other identifying information is on the bottom of the case which says: "SERIES 3541N5".  

Also, stamped into the bottom of the case are two sets of numbers/letters:  "247139-001", and "15051-M2-REV"

I need to reload Windows98SE on this computer, and the Compaq/HP site makes one search by exact model number to obtain drivers, etc.

Thanks!

Compaq site should say how to find the model number. Should be in the FAQ section, or try a search on "How tho identify a deskpro 4000"

Hit <F10> at the Compaq splash screen to enter the bios. System Information is the first screen.

Thanks all for your replies.  

Burrcm, this machine is missing the System Setup partition, so no luck with the F10 at startup.

Coral47, I could not find the exact model number (the numbers after Deskpro 4000) at Compaq's site.

Woodendude, I downloaded and tried the program you recommended.  It showed that this Deskpro 4000 has a 166MHz processor and that it does not support MMX.  So I'm going to assume that this is a Deskpro 4000 5166.

I've reloaed the System Setup partition and have begun to reload Win98SE.  So far, so good.

Thanks for your help.

>>> Deskpro 4000 5166 <<<   LOL  Sounds like a good guess.
