    What he said - now then...

    I would assume that you can not find the Win 95's original jewel case or slip sleeve? The Key Code would have been on the back of it.

    Now this Compaq is quite old. Extremely basic, with a first generation Pentium in it, and only 64MB of RAM max. How despirate are you on getting this beastie up and running? The internet these days would eat the poor thing alive, even if it could get there in the first place. But, it did come with a restoration disk (in this model, it would be overall red with white text and Compaq logo). It's key code would be on a Microsoft label on the bottom of the computer.

    Good luck.
