Most older computers have a jumper to enable or disable devices. I would look near the video chip to see if a jumper is nearby, or go to compaqs website and get a motherboard schematic.

Have you tried disabling it in your BIOS?
That will ussually take care of it. If you need to get to your BIOS, hold down the "Delete" key when windows is starting up(Win XP)
