Re: wireless button

Look on your F keys and see if you see a little blue antenna if so press your Fn key and simutaniously the antenna button that should turn it on, also you can also go into the control panel and try turning it on there, and also in your wireless settings in the network setting, Let me know if that works for you, If not we can figure it out. Just write back here, Happy Holidays

How can i bypass my forgot admin password on my compaq armada e500

With the older Compaq Armada E500 Notebook PC, I believe;

1) Remove the CMOS battery.

2) Leave it out for 30 minutes.

3) Press the Power On button, and hold it for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button.

Press it again. If the Power On light comes on, hold the Power On button in, until the light goes out. Keep pressing, and holding the Power On button in, until the Power On LED light does Not come on anymore.

Reinstall the CMOS battery. WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

If this doesn't do it, there is a capacitor inside the laptop keeping residual power. There may be two copper pads that are briefly touched across, to dissipate this residual power.

Perform the removal of the CMOS battery first. If this doesn't work I'll try to find info on the copper pads. (They are usually under the Wireless Card, and a small piece of Mylar plastic sheet)

Post back in a Comment as to your findings.

My e500 is not turning on,even if its plugged in,

To check for a fault in the power button PCB. Remove the battery and power cord. Take out the screw behind the left hinge and unclip the cover over the power buttons. Located under the power button cover is a PC board that is held in with 2 screws, check the miniature plug soldered underneath the right hand side if it is still soldered to the PCB. It can break off and stay in the socket.
This can cause no response when the buttons are pressed and no lights to come on. It will need special surface mount soldering by a technician.

I can't understand how your computer even works with only 64Megs. of RAM.
Look at the system requirements on the wireless. It will tell you the min. required memory for your device.
Hope this has helped you.

I would recommend using WEP, but you don't have to have any security at all. But I would definitely have some.
