Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
I can turn it on, but all I get are three green lights (shift,capitals,numlock).
It doesn't even get to a bios check, hard drive doesn't kick in, black screen, nothing.
So far I've changed motherboard & cpu.
Please any suggestions before I throw it out the window?!
It happened to me and I went on the HP site and found how to fix it. Under the keyboard you can find the ram. If you take out the battery and disconnect it from the mains, then take the ram out and put it back in again, it can sometimes solve the problem. If not then there's something wrong with something else inside it.

According to your problem first check the hard drive status and make sure that it is ok. If it doesn't detect in bios setup then you can change the cable of the hard drive. Also make sure that the DVD Rom working fine. If the hard drive doesn't detect while you begin setup then clear the bios first. Then reset the bios properly. You may need a firmware update also. If you can not continue the setup then break the partition of the hard drive. You can use partition break up software, like partition magic etc also. If it doesn't solve your problem then you may need to replace the hard drive. To check the hard drive status you can try with another OS installation. Best of luck.
