Greetings Vogons. As usual, I am stuck and you are my only hope!
I am doing a refurbishment on this handsome old Compaq Presario 7480. I have cleaned it all up and upgraded the RAM. I will be sticking with the original 550Mhz AMD-K6-2 processor and using the motherboard's onboard sound and video capabilities (don't worry, I won't be playing many 3D accelerated games on it).
I have done a fresh install of Windows 98 and am at the point where I need to install video and sound drivers, but this is where I become stuck.
I presume that Compaq would have shipped the machine with a setup CD containing all the drivers, but obviously I don't have this available to me. I have found a few drivers here, but I'm not sure if they are correct and they seem to be for specific fixes.

I can't see any model information on the PCB of the motherboard. I'm at a loss! All the information I have is:
- Chassis clearly shows model number 7480
- See picture_2, shows "Compaq serial number H043FP331067"
- System Information section in the BIOS says "System ROM family 686S4"
Thank you in advance for any help. Cheers.
