== Background and Identification == The CQ57 is a series of Compaq Presario notebook computers developed by HP under the Compaq name. Compaq was a computer hardware and software company founded in 1982 and was the producer of some of IBM’s first PC compatible computers. HP acquired Compaq in 2002 and remained in use by HP until 2013 for lower-end personal computer systems. The Presario line is a discontinued series of notebooks and desktop computers that were launched by Compaq in 1993. The Presario name was used by HP until the Compaq branding was discontinued by the company in 2013. The Compaq Presario CQ57 was a line of notebook computers that was repurposed by HP as consumer-oriented and budget computers. The CQ57 line includes several models, though most include 15.6-inch displays and cost between 300 and 500 U.S. dollars. They include either AMD E-Series E-350, AMD E-Series E-450, or Intel Core i3 370M processors and AMD Radeon HD 6310, AMD Radeon HD 6320, or Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD graphics adapters. Beginning in 2007, Compaq Presario computers included a new Compaq Division logo which included the name ‘Compaq’ below a letter ‘C’ with an accentuated tail, all in red font. Some Presario computers include a different Compaq logo, which simply includes the name “Compaq” in capital letters inside of a black circle. == Additional Information == * [https://support.hp.com/us-en/products/laptops/compaq-notebooks|Compaq notebook support] * Wikipedia: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compaq_Presario|Compaq Presario] * [https://www.engadget.com/products/hp/compaq-presario/cq57/scores/|Engadget: HP Compaq CQ57 Photos, Specs, and Price] == Maintenance Guide == [document|1232]
