You may have owned Compaq as Compaq basis transferred to HP in 1999.  Then there is these suggestions on basis allocations since then.

You will need to know "the basis", what you originally paid. You can go online for historical information on stocks.  (Follow this link for the historical information on HP:  http://h30261.www3.hp.com/stock/historical-lookup.aspx)                It is acceptable to take the high and low price of a stock and average them to arrive at a value.

Having some "best efforts" cost basis figure is better than not having anything at all.

The following TurboTax information may be helpful in finding your cost basis.
