Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Compaq Armada E500. It was working fine but suddenly does not boot now. The battery does not charge (for several years now) so I work entirely on AC power with the dead battery left in its compartment properly seated. Now, when I switch on the laptop, the 3 lights (Capslock, Numlock and ScrollLock) light up and stay lit. The laptop does not go any further. Does not light up the screen, does not show any signs of POST or booting. Does not give the Welcome sound also. Same situation with battery removed from its compartment also. I have removed the 2 memory modules (128 MB each), cleaned them and put them back. Problem still persists without any change. When the external PS2 mouse is connected, it lights up. When only one memory module is installed, and booting attempted, the 3 lights come on and stay on, but a continuous beep also results. The computer still does not go further. Please help.

Computer worked fine last time i used it about 2 months ago, now it will not power up, any suggestions? compaq armada e500


Sounds like the you might need to replace the battery. Also check the power supply reconnect make sure connection are tight etc... its a long shot but make sure wall outlet is also active as well! Sometime it takes 20- 30 mins for an old battery to begin to recharge:)

Compaq armada E500 battery critical condition. How to fix it please?


Battery critical condition = the battery has aged so much that it can't be used anymore, it has become incapable of holding a charge. The only thing you can do is to replace it but finding a new one for a laptop this old is going to be tough.

Compaq Armada e500 will not turn on


hello

After reading your problem i think that your charger i malfunctioning as it is not charging the battery when it is plugged in..

The message you have mentioned comes only when your battery crosses the lower limit of charge..and your charger is not charging so it ran out..


Thank you

Not always the Hard drive, boot into the bios setup utility and de-select network bootfrom the boot options. If it tries to network boot first you will always get that failure.
