I have special place for compaq as I can actually use these compaq especially with audio cards where one cannot do with PS/2 which far more easier document for power supply pinout than compaq's.
My interest in 90 to late 98 compaq increased after had PS/2 at first but no longer active with it due to very poor audio support.
Therefore, must document the power supply pinout for vintage OEM computers. This way if their computer with proprietary PSU fails and wants to make adapter cable and use easy to find PSU.
Don't skim the manuals you find online; read carefully to make sure it is correct one, Compaq does not always say what is the model in many of the reference manuals in first few pages, there is one a link based on Deskpro M but the manual is actually for AGP and PII several years later.
The internet is also missing some documents for:
Quick reference manual
and full reference service manual.
Prolinea 3/25zs. Does exist, seen one in person years ago, was a 386SX 25 model, slim line case with 2 ISA slots, two memory 30pin sockets and adapter to plug in to get 2 more 30pin sockets.
Deskpro 386 or 486/33L via processor card and memory card, there is 2 types of boards, one of them is Pentium based on the system board instead of processor board
Compaq SystemPro 486 or 386 based on L processor cards in two slots for dual cpu and two memory cards.
Deskpro M series
Deskpro XL series. Very hard to find information on.
Deskpro 386/33i and 486/33i rare motherboard design outside of few generic motherboards to host either 386DX or 486, and this is a OEM maker to have 2 sockets for either 386DX 33 with 16K cache or 486DX and optional 64K cache card. Also there is another motherboard 486/33i only, with items not soldered: 386DX socket, 387 socket and 395DX cache controller.
There much more too.
