Question about Compaq Armada 1598DMT Notebook
Your problem more than likely is that one of the two ribbons that attach your powerboard to you motherboard is bad. These ribbons are called flex cables and they come in various sizes and widths. If your confident that you won't damage anything on the laptop you can take it apart, remove the keyboard and test the cables. Power flows on these ribbons on the farthest right lead on the ribbon when it is in place. A simple electrical curcuit tester will due. If this is the problem, you can order these ribbons online either precut or you can do it yourself. If you don't do it yourself go to a knowledgable computer store and see if they will fix it. I've had this problem happen on many occasions with other peoples laptops mainly HPs and Compaqs.
