Here's the link. Took about one minute:
Google on "Compaq Presario". Takes you to HP. Then search on model. Get product specs.

When you say arch do you mean 32 vrs 64 bit or are you talking about AMD vrs Intel? What is the context of the question? Are you trying to find out what kernel you are running?
uname -a
will tell you what your kernel is. If your kernel is an SMP kernel then your running SMP (multi-processor) You may see this fairly often even if you have a single processor.

Linux gandalf #1 SMP Mon Jul 23 16:59:15 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

That is a sample output of uname -a

Archetechture could mean many things, without the context it's hard to know what you mean by it.
