Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
Just got a used laptop and all was working fine until it went into hibernate mode / standby, was in the process of updating internet explorer. I checked the user manual and pressed the power button as it describes in the user manual but it didn't do anything at all. No lights now nothing...like it is powered off completely and won't come back on.
Try removing the battery and all pwer from the computer. This will kill the hibernation process. Put the battery back in, with outlet power if you desire. Then try to start the laptop in safe mode. (Everything will be very big) Go to the start menu, accessories, system tools, and stystem restore. Go through the process of restoring the computer any time before you tried installing the update! Then it will automatically restart in normal mode and you should have your old internet explorer back and it SHOULD start up normally! Hope this helps! :)
