My laptop (HP ZV5000) is the same as the Compaq R3000.
It has the same exact problems; although I ordered an
Athlon XP-M processor for it (for some dumb reason).
All the AMD64 patches for the compaq/hp laptops have
been applicable to mine as well - even though the
processor isn't 64 bit

If history always begins this morning, the world holds
exciting surprises around every corner (241).
