Trying to get my old Compaq Presario setup back :)

As the subject title says I'm trying to get my Compaq setup back in time for this new World of Warcraft vanilla server. I never really played WoW at all really just tried the free trial a long time ago when I had this computer. I always wanted to play WoW but I heard Vanilla was the best and I would like to start my first WoW experience on that. Also planning on doing videos of this and my progress on my YouTube channel and use this old setup live on Twitch.com.

Kinda got off topic but just thought I'd let you know why I want my Compaq Presario back. Happy

I still have my Compaq Presario desktop and it works fine but it has been modified I think around 2009 when I got this virus that screwed up the hard drive. I'm not sure what else they changed in it but it's not the same. Plus I'm want to get the whole setup like it was back when my Sister bought it for us at Circuit City. It came in a bundle that had the desktop of course, Monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse that where all dedicated to Compaq if I remember correctly.

I've been doing some research and image searching to see if I can find my exact old setup but I had no luck and had to really remember what it came with. So far I have this..

The Desktop from what I can see is very similar to the Compaq Presario SR1303WM but I'll have to wait and see when I get back home to confirm this is the same model I still have.

The keyboard is a Compaq 5107. I can confirm this as I played months of Halo Combat Evolved and remember that keyboard.

The mouse I think was a generic black compaq mouse but I can't really remember since I had used several for some reason... I do know it was a ball mouse (not sure what those are called) so no laser or optical.

The monitor is a Compaq FS7555 I pretty sure it was this one but I could be wrong there are two other CRT Compaq monitors that look the same. I'm pretty sure it is the FS7555 but only those who know how this bundle came together will know.

The speakers that came with the bundle I think came inside with the monitor if I remember.

I found only the mouse, keyboard, and I still have my Compaq Presario but I would like to buy a new used one since mine has been tampered with. The only things I need to find is a new Compaq Presario not really necessary though since I still have my old one. And the monitor with original speakers.

If anyone knows where I can find any of these or can point me out to a website where I may possibly find them please let me know Grin

I'm really just trying to get my old setup back just for the original feel , visuals, and sound. I know this setup is pretty bad but I'm willing to put up with it. Just doing this for fun and a video project Happy
