    Thanks a lot Syclar,

    Yes I know you are right but this laptop is not mine is for a costumer so he wants to repair.

    I bought a serial port replacement but i really dont know how is the structure of this port because he just told me about this problem.

    I will suggest him to buy a USB to Serial converter, but the problem is thar sometimes and for some aplications this converter doesnt work.

    Thanks for your help Syclar

    PD. how can i contact you by mail?

Do you really need the serial port? You should be able to find a USB to serial converter fairly cheaply.

    You could download the service manual fromhttp://tinyurl.com/ysjcu4 but I can't really answer the question without disassembling it myself. The manual will at least give you the part no. syclarATcomputerate.co.uk

How do i connect crw-785 to compaq armada e500


This e500 has USB1.0 and transfer rate will be slow. If you use Win 98 then install the USB driver (get on web) first. Install software then plug in the USB lead from the crw-785 and don't forget to plug in the DC adaptor for the drive, (e500 USB port does not have enough power to run external drives other than some older thumbdrives).

Dell laptop model latitude e5500 serial port one pin is broken. What can i do.


Hello there
Many serial port pins use several of the pins but sometimes not all of them It depends upon how the serial port is wired internally on which pins it uses.
But if yours indeed does not work you will have to have it replaced by a computer repair shop or sombody that is able to unsolder the old one from the board and have a new one resoldered one this generally costs about
100 dollars ok hope this helps
Best regards mike

Compaq Armada E500 PC Notebook usb port problem


If the usb connector / port is only damaged it should be a fairly easy task.

Your going to need a few screwdrivers to get the laptop open
and a soldering iron, to remove the port or ports connector(s)
from the motherboard then replace it with a new connector.
if the motherboard is damaged you would most likely have to replace the whole motherboard and that would be way too much money for a few usb ports.

the usb connector only has 4 pins
