It it possible to upgrade the hardware (especially the memory and the graphical card)? I heard someone it was not possible, because compaqs accept only their own hardware. But that was a long time ago...

it is a HP Compaq Desktop computer.

Unless the machine is from the late stone age it shouldn't be a problem. And if it's a "HP Compaq" then it's no problem at all. You can pretty much exchange everything as long as it's not soldered onto the mainboard. If it's an older (pre-HP/Compaq merger) then it shouldn't be a problem either unless it's an old 386 or something. Those usually had a nack for locking out certain brands of RAM sticks and they had their own little interfaces.

So I don't think you will have a problem. Just think of the warranty if you still got any.
