Armada e500 won't boot

Hi there,
I have an armada e500 when I turn it on all I get is the three flashing lights across the top bar, it does not bring up any bios screens or any logos, I read in a past post that it could be the hard drive but shouldn't you get some sort of bios info

My armada e500 processor is built-in and processor not working

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My armada e500 will turn on, do the little compaq sign then just stay on a blank screen and won't do anything further. HELP!!!!


Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

Check if it will load to windows, if not, there could be a problem with windows. Try startup repair on advanced boot options. Hope this helps.
