Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
Hi, I have a 4-yo notebook, which came with software preloaded incl Win 2000. About a year or so ago both the HDD and battery failed (literally a week out of warranty!), and were replaced, after which I then also upgraded to XPSP2. However, since then I've no longer been able to use the front buttons to adjust the volume, and it's causing quite a problem for me at times, as if I don't remember to set it low with software it will often produce some major loud sound unexpectedly on me which is a bit offputting. I have downloaded widgets and all sorts of other volume software to make it slightly easier for me to push it up and down quickly if need be, and in particular to mute it when necessary. Are the buttons also software controlled, or has something else died in the darned thing?? I don't have any means of obtaining the original Compaq software that was loaded on to it, unless someone knows where I can perhaps do so online if necessary?? Many thanks.
