    My problem is that my USB port is disabled and also it is telling me that my battery is not found. I am not sure whether my battery is bad or the laptop just can't find it.

Well Compaqs are usually F10 but you must have tried this and it doesn't do anything.
As for you not being able to get into the bios, if the hard drive on that machine has been fdisked, and formatted, the software that lets you get into the bios is on the hard drive, if it has been erased, then it is gone, and so is the DIAGS partition and Diagnostics and BIOS Setup cannot be run as designed.
As an interim solution you may run both from diskettes.
Download the following (which you'll also need to re-create the missing partition):
SP9962 - Computer Setup for Portables v. 2.01 J (24 Jan 99)
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/notebooks/us/download/8089.html

SP12906 - Personal Computer Diagnostics v. 10.39 A (10 Mar 00)
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/notebooks/us/download/7106.html

Create diskettes from the SoftPaqs.
Then boot from the Diagnostics diskette and run the full memory test.
You may also use the Setup diskette to enter BIOS Setup and disable "QuickBoot" in order to enable the full RAM count on start-up.



use it to make a floppy disk and use it to access the bios.
1. Obtain a formatted 1.44-MB diskette.
2. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on your hard drive and change to that directory. The file that is downloaded is an executable with a filename based on the SoftPaq Number above.
3. From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. You will be prompted to insert the formatted diskette in a drive to create the diskette.
4. After the diskette has been created, you may delete the SoftPaq file downloaded in step 2.
5. To install, insert the created diskette in drive A: and reboot

Hope this helps

Try this:
Push F10 when the bios screen appears,

If doesnt helps is is a bigger problem.
Because setup and disgnostics on the disk on a
special partition, you need a setup disks to boot to bios, if this partition is erased.

Please download the disks from this location:

SP9962 - Computer Setup for Portables v. 2.01 J (24 Jan 99)
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/notebooks/us/download/8089.html

SP16085 - Personal Computer Diagnostics version 10.40 A(7 Dec 00)
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/armada/us/download/9260.html

Download the files and extract it, then create setup disks.
Boot from the disks and follow the instructions.

Hy! My name si Stefan and my compaq armada 1592 dmt sound driver is not working. On Xp and win98 works but on Windows 2000 does not. Could u please tell me what driver ( good driver :D ) should i use, and...


The XP audio driver should work with Windows 2000.
I suggest you use Windows XP - its a later version of Windows than Windows 2000.
You can download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Compaq armada 1500c


Is it the Operating System you are trying to install?
or the service pack 2 for WinXP?

If it is the OS click on the ASK ME tab under my User ID and leave your contact address, I will send out the 3CD set for compaq Armada/Presario to load the OS and Applications.

If it is the Service pack, don't install SP2, Install SP3
The release candidate 2 is in English, German, or Japanese.
Down at the bootom of this link's page, select the language you want and download approx 315mb

Cmos bios setup utility


Hi, On some Compaq models, entry to CMOS/BIOS setup requires pressing F10 as soon as the cursor (white box) appears in the upper right hand corner of the screen (The cursor is displayed on the screen for about two seconds. If you do not press F10 during this time, you must restart the computer and try again.); Alternately on some other models, it is at boot when you see the "Compaq" log in big letters. hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
