How do I reformat a compaq armada e500 lap top


Use the Restoration Disk.

Perform a Repair if you are going to keep existing personal information.
(i.e., Documents you have created or downloaded, Photos, Music, and programs you have downloaded, or installed)

Repair is a Non-Destructive Installation.

Perform a Full Installation if you do not plan on keeping personal information.
Full Installation is a Destructive Installation.

If you do not have the Restoration Disk for your Compaq Armada E500, you can obtain it from HP Support. (HP owns Compaq)

In the USA the Restoration Disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
(24hrs a day, 7 days a week)

For all other countries please click on this link,

If you format the harddrive the wrong way, you will wipe off the Windows operating system.
You'll have a blank harddrive.

Boot up failure


Fixed disc is refering to your hardrive and the fact that it has been unable to read a bad sector on your hard drive, that sector probably being where the boot.ini file resides. You will have to get the drive checked out, by means of an 2.5" ide to usb powered connector, which will connect to another pc's usb port to enable you to perform a disk check and a repair if possible of the bad sectors, or take to a local repairer where they should have the required adapters.
