How to fit memory to laptop compaq armada e500

most hp/compaq laptops will have memory slots located under the keyboard, and sometimes an additional memory slot accessed through a panel on the bottom of the notebook.
In your case, you have 2 memory slots located under the keyboard. Officially, this unit only supports up to 256 mb memory modules for a maximum of 512 MB of memory so if you already have that, be aware that larger capacity memory modules may not work.

I have compaq laptop Armada E500 and I want to upgrade my laptops ram And i dont found memory slot

Ok this laptop only takes SDram
The location of the ram is under the keyboard
Here's the instructions on how to get to it.
First shut down the laptop and disconnect any cables or whatever that is connected to it.
Then turn the computer over there is a security screw there remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Then take a paper clip and put it into the 4 keyboard releases which should be
1. right of the ESC key
2. between the F4 and F5 key
3.between the F8 and F9 key
4. right of the F12 key
Now you can lift the keyboard by tilting it up closest to the LCD towards you.
You will see a empty memmory slot which should be 1.
Put it in at a 45 degree angle and push down gently till it snaps in place.
Now you just reverse the way you took it apart and you should be all set
Happy Holidays

I have a Compaq armada m700 and i dont know the power up password i put it in without realizing it

I'm copying someone else's answer; I can't vouch for it.
emove the main battery and mains power supply, hit the power switch to drain any retained charge. then remove the cmos battery and short out the contacts. the cmos battery is on the right under the panel at the top of the keyboard, which can be popped out by gently levering it up at the edges. the key board can then be folded clear, watch for the ribbon cable under it that connects to the motherboard.

It looks like your keyboard is wrongly configured, go to control panel, keyboard and set it to standar (101 or 102) keyboard. Also check your local (regional and language) settings are set to correct country.

Let me know if this solved your problem.

Keyboard problems

You need to download and install the proper drivers from Compaq (now HP). Go to and do the following:

Click "Get Support" at the top.

Enter "armada m700" in the "Enter a product number" box.

Click the little submit button that looks like ">>".

Click "Download drivers and software".

Click one of the "Windows XP" links. Doesn't matter which one.

Scroll down and click the "Download" buttons that correspond to each driver you want to download.

Install the drivers you downloaded.
