Re: compaq armada 1500

I hate to say this but it is more than likely shorted out. Water and electrical componets dont like each other. The best thing i can say if your up to it take it appart and clean it. If your lucky it just might boot up.

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.

Try removing battery and then re inserting. This can usually be done pretty simply by sliding lock to one side and the pulling battery out. This is under the laptop.

Compaq armada 7400 does not turn on

Please turn off the Computer and disconnect the AC Adaptor then remove the Battery. Next, try cleaning the metal contacts on the Battery and reseating the RAM modules.Then, connect only AC Adaptor to the Computer and try to turn it ON without the Battery. If the Computer doesn't turn ON then disconnect the AC Adaptor and insert the Battery then try turning ON the Computer. If the issue persists even after performing all the above steps then service will be required.

AC Power and Battery Problem.....

Sounds like the battery or possibly the charging circits themselves are the problem. Can you try turning on the laptop with just the power cord in and no battery?

Compaq Armada 7400 Not Starting up

Hi, Try a couple of things. Boot without the battery first. (just using ac adapter) Have you made any recent changes, like adding memory, etc? If so, take out whatever you installed last. Good luck.
