Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook

1 Answer

Blank screen I have a Compaq Armada E500. I had an open document open and I closed the laptop to do something, assuming it would go into sleep mode. When I opened it up the screen was blank and I couldn't get it to go back on. The power light in the front is on, but nothing else. It sounds like it's running. I plugged it in to see if it's the battery, but still nothing has happened. The battery icon does flash quickly when I open it to see if it's back on yet. I hope this problem can be fixed, but if not, is there a good possibility that I will lose all the stuff I have on there?

    Thank you for your help. It turned out that it was frozen and I just had to pop out the battery and put it back in. But now all my documents are locked. How do I unlock them?

Use the Restoration Disk.

Perform a Repair if you are going to keep existing personal information.
(i.e., Documents you have created or downloaded, Photos, Music, and programs you have downloaded, or installed)

Repair is a Non-Destructive Installation.

Perform a Full Installation if you do not plan on keeping personal information.
Full Installation is a Destructive Installation.

If you do not have the Restoration Disk for your Compaq Armada E500, you can obtain it from HP Support. (HP owns Compaq)

In the USA the Restoration Disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
(24hrs a day, 7 days a week)

For all other countries please click on this link,

If you format the harddrive the wrong way, you will wipe off the Windows operating system.
You'll have a blank harddrive.

My armada e500 will turn on, do the little compaq sign then just stay on a blank screen and won't do anything further. HELP!!!!


Hi,

Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

Check if it will load to windows, if not, there could be a problem with windows. Try startup repair on advanced boot options. Hope this helps.
