If you can get into safe mode - log in as ADMINISTRATOR - I bet there is no password for that account.

IF that doesnt work i can get you instructions on how to crack the password.

Upgrade compaq armada e500

It has been a while but I think it isn't a zif but a standard low profile socket. You need a good light and check the edges to see if you can see the layers or where the cpu edges are. You should see the color differences between the plastic or the socket and the cpu. From above it will look like just a cpu but from the sides you should see the cpu overhand the socket a small bit or be flush with the edges.

The cpu has to be a M series P3 and you may need to adjust bus speeds and/or ram speed to make it work. May also have to upgrade bios as well.

I have a laptop compaq armada e500,but i forgot my admin can i reset it to gain access to my laptop?


You can create from another computer and run a Password Reset disk.

Download and burn to CD. Copy/paste this link:

Download this file and burn it to a CD.

Put into drive and turn on PC. Boot from your CD.

Follow instructions, choose the correct USER and BLANK out the password.

Make sure you say OK to write the data, and reboot.

The Administrator logon password will now be blank.

Note: Substitute a flash drive for CD, if your system doesn't have a CD drive.

Hope this helps.

Forgot password and cant login to my compaq armada e500

The Armada series are really nice pice of art. A bit old but nice... so, u can't login on windows? Use a Windows XPE (yeah, with "E") CD... on the iNet are many of those, and most of them come with a software for "unlocking" any user password of Windows XP.

And if u are talking about the password of the BIOS then u will have to open u notebook and remove the CMOS battery for minimun 1 minute. That will restore the default settings of your notebook, the settings that comes from factory, deleting any configuration made by the user.

Armada m3000 screen

you can mess around and try to fix it but on those old machines its really not worth it(I own 5 of these).Might I suggest the Armada M700 or the E500--e500 is what im on now and it runs better than a brand new dell or compaq)you might get a new screen on ebay for about 40 bucks. It might be a better idea to buy a new one and save the parts from your old one. You can get a new one for 70 bucks on ebay.
