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.

How can i bypass my forgot admin password on my compaq armada e500


With the older Compaq Armada E500 Notebook PC, I believe;

1) Remove the CMOS battery.

2) Leave it out for 30 minutes.

3) Press the Power On button, and hold it for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button.

Press it again. If the Power On light comes on, hold the Power On button in, until the light goes out. Keep pressing, and holding the Power On button in, until the Power On LED light does Not come on anymore.

Reinstall the CMOS battery. WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

If this doesn't do it, there is a capacitor inside the laptop keeping residual power. There may be two copper pads that are briefly touched across, to dissipate this residual power.

Perform the removal of the CMOS battery first. If this doesn't work I'll try to find info on the copper pads. (They are usually under the Wireless Card, and a small piece of Mylar plastic sheet)

Post back in a Comment as to your findings.

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.

Laptop only works with mains power supply connected


When you power your system up do you get a message saying battery charge failure or some other disappointing driver message? Try powering down, removing the battery, and look for a little button on the underneath of the battery. You should be able to press this button and a series of lights will or won't appear. If they light up it means the battery is truly charged. If not there is something wrong with the connection. Try wiping the surface off and replacing the battery. Also make sure the pin that you place into the laptop to charge the battery is free of dust, etc.

Turn off and on the power button by hand and press keys:
Ctrl+Alt in two finger and repeatedly hit the G key (if it's
not working try again by press them three the same time
down).

You will see the screen goes through some texts and
codes. And look at the bottom it say to hold down the F
key to uninstall Goback.

I held the F key for a while and let it go.

Turn the power button off by hand and back on again.( try
this method a couple of times)

If that doesn't work then try this link

My compaq armada 3500 wont boot up or only shows the welcome compaq logo


I think that has to do with the BIOS if it cant boot compeletly. Try pressing the key indicated to enter into SETUP if you cant just try and look for a jumper on the motherboard that is written CMOS it may be a button or something.
