The computer worked OK until recently, but now when switching on, after a brief flash of the hard drive and multibay lights all that happens is the battery light flashes nine times and then stops. This can be repeated ad infinitum with no result

Hi, Try a couple of things. Boot without the battery first. (just using ac adapter) Have you made any recent changes, like adding memory, etc? If so, take out whatever you installed last. Good luck.

My compaq armada 7400 laptop is extremely slow. I have reloaded XP and have minimal files in it but the computer is still VERY slow. When the screen display clears a window it slowly erases from top to...

Couple of things,

First, disable XP's visual effect. Right click on My Computer and click on property, click on Advance Tab, Click on Setting under Performance, Check the box adject for best performance and click on OK.. it should speed up your computer a bit

Also, check your RAM and upgrade it if its is less than 1 GB.

where are you what country,? (matters for language and keyboards)
wow, compaq relic day' from the PENTIUM 2 days,a relic !
no exact PC stated, the full model number. just a series
no OS stated, XP? what?
possible wrong can be 3 things,
  1. bad keyboard.
  2. (or wrong kbd for you country)
  3. or unstated windows set to wrong country;

first off the 7400 has many sub models stated on your service tag

for example 7400-6300
there is even a code for the many keyboards used world wide.
page 4 states
Euro symbol provided on Europe/Middle East/Africa keyboards
this old pc even has 1 USB jack on the rear
try a USB KEYBOARD there yet> see if it works ok?
that be first thing Id have done, to see if its hardware or software issue.

this pc came with O/S ,win95 , win98 or NT
you never said what? OS

Below is the URL for compaq's Service Manual for that model. This shows you the details of every single part & how to disassemble and reassemble every screw. Surely it has to be in this document, somewhere. -->
