Thanks,

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.

Computer worked fine last time i used it about 2 months ago, now it will not power up, any suggestions? compaq armada e500


Sounds like the you might need to replace the battery. Also check the power supply reconnect make sure connection are tight etc... its a long shot but make sure wall outlet is also active as well! Sometime it takes 20- 30 mins for an old battery to begin to recharge:)

Forgot password and cant login to my compaq armada e500


The Armada series are really nice pice of art. A bit old but nice... so, u can't login on windows? Use a Windows XPE (yeah, with "E") CD... on the iNet are many of those, and most of them come with a software for "unlocking" any user password of Windows XP.

And if u are talking about the password of the BIOS then u will have to open u notebook and remove the CMOS battery for minimun 1 minute. That will restore the default settings of your notebook, the settings that comes from factory, deleting any configuration made by the user.

Compaq Armada e500 refuses to start!


An immediate boot fail normally either indicates a flat cmos battery or a faulty processor. My advice is to take to a qualified repair shop, as notebook are not as easy to work with as desktops and finding the cmos battery alone can be a headache.
