Thank you for finding that information for me.  The strange thing is 
that the Laptop has identifers on the bottom of the screen.  Bottom left 
says Compaq - bottom right says Ivo N620c.  Even when I go to Compaq 
website there are no specs for a Compaq N620c, only 610 and 600, and 
none of them are at 1.8ghz.  The highest is 1.6ghz.  Nonetheless, my 
computer runs from 1200mhz to 1800mhz depending on my need.  Perhaps 
this is an experimental model or something.  All manuals list as N610c.  
That is why I want some internal response from my computer.  Perhaps the 
motherboard or other things are different from the normal laptop of the 
day.  So when I request parts I may need different numbers.  Anyway 
thanks for the help.  2gigs of memory should get me the results I want, 
if I can get this electrical problem squared away.  I sure would like to 
get a larger hard drive than 60gb too.  I only have 30 now.
