Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
When power is pluged in, both lights-battery light & power light, starts flashing but computer wont boot...even processor fan isnt working..plz help
I ran into the same problem with my Armada E500. In my case, it was a faulty RAM module. What I would suggest is start by removing the battery, and the charger. Then continue by removing the plastic section above your keyboard (there is a single screw holding it in place on the rear end of the laptop. This plastic covers the right-hand hindge) from there, there are four plastic tabs that you slide down to remove the keyboard. This will give you clear access to the ram. Remove the module(s) and, using a soft eraser, gently clean the contacts. If your laptop has two sticks of ram, I would also recommend putting them in opposite ram slots. After that, replace the keyboard and plastic bezzel, reconnect the battery and charger, and try to boot it up again

Nothing is booting ......when in earnest I say that is the BIOS screen at the beginning not going too. When you say the lights all go but the computer does not BOOT can you clarify please what goes. Now you say the processor fan does not work I imagine you are INSIDE the unit to know this try pushing down on the CPU firmly with your hands it may have dislodged slightly it can do this sometimes.....Ive seen it happen. Now for the not booting I need to know what is if any?.
