Did it come with a specific pre-built computer?

it came with compaq presario sr1110nx…first of,i changed my motherboard.second,i did reformat my HD and installed new XP (borrowed from friend)everything looked up fine but when i trying to update all driver,including the CD-ROM, i tried to update from HP/compaq but i needed to burn the update getting it first from the c:(containing compaq related folders) …and telling me that a FIRMWARE IS NEEDED FOR THE UPDATE…all the compaq orig software/pc tools were all gone.

the CD-ROM is in the device manager,lite-on is appearing correctly…but could not play (only the blinking light)…
