Dear Pyrhyc,

I downloaded recording studio software onto my Compaq Armada E500 Pc Notebook, and about a week later im not to sure what happened but everytime i start the Pc up it says a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
CONFIG_LIST_FALIED
Technical information:
(then theres a code)
then it says beginning dump of physical memory

contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.
then it give directions on how to uninstal new hardware or software by clicking on safe mode at the menu screen, but every time i follow those directions it sends me straight back to the screen.

Try tapping the F5 or F8 key (could be either one) right after you power up. This should take you to a short text message with a couple of choices to continue; you'll find the Safe Mode option there.

SOURCE: computer wont turn on

When you end up with a registry corruption, you are limited to what you can do. First thing I would try is this. When you power your system on and immediately after the POST boot, begin pressing F8 on your keyboard. This will bring up a Windows Boot Menu. One of the choices you will see if, "Last known Good Configuration..." If an install of software is what corrupted your registry, this should hopefully undo that. If you are experiencing hard drive failure, this will probably not fix that.

If last known good configuration does not work, I'm afraid that the only other solution is going to try and do a parallel installation of Windows so that you can save your existing data.

What Operating System are you using?

Here's microsoft's official description of your stop error:

SOURCE: will not boot up past the message I describe below

You might reload your Operating System to correct this. Insert your Recovery disk into your drive, choose DVD as Boot Option, recover your OS.

SOURCE: it has a blue screen

your windows OS is corrupted, you have to reinstall everything from the scratch. Doing a windows repair will not fix it.

Windows 98 se, xp not installed to compaq armada E500 pc notebook


First, format the hard drive and make sure it is in FAT or FAT32 for Windows 98 install. Then do your partitioning etc and should work. If it doesn't, it is possibly a hardware fault.

Here is the site for the drivers for the laptop :

I think your boot record (Master Boot Record) is damaged and this can come from Windows just trashing itself as it is prone to do, or the hard drive has failed. That message is generated by the BIOS.

Compaq Armada e500 won?t recognize the cd drive


Simple things first: Assuming the CD drive is removable, remove it from the laptop then re-iinsert it making sure it's pushed home properly so that the connectors seat properly.

If, again, the drive is in a bay (i.e. it's removable) then it may be the connectors are worn/damaged. If it's the drive connector then it may be repairable or you might pick up another drive, perhaps on eBay. It may also be that the drive has simply given up the ghost - so back to eBay :) If the connectors on the laptop have got damaged then you're looking at dismantling the laptop to repair/replace them, if that's possible.

If it's an external drive then the advice is very similar - check out the connectors first. If they look OK then you probably have to suspect the drive itself.

For either type of drive, there is always the small chance that the IDE controller channel on the motherboard has died - I have seen this happen in rare cases. Your options then are a bit limited. IIRC, that PC has no USB2 and even if it did, it wouldn't boot from a USB CD. You can get a PCMCIA interface card (now called simply PC interface) for an external CD. Depending on the card-drive interface, you might be able to boot from that.

If you need to install software onto the machine & have another (desktop) PC to hand: remove the disc from the E500, get a 2 1/2 to 3 1/2" disc adapter & temporarily attach the drive to the desktop as a secondary (i.e. not boot) disc. You can then load software onto the drive although you can't do a Windows install that way. If the machine already has an old version of windows on it, you can copy for example, the XP install files onto the drive, put it back in the machine & run an upgrade. Not the most desirable result but may be OK.
