F1, F2, F12 and DEL are the common keys...

Also try F10. On this computer I think that loads the boot device selection screen, but not sure.

Here's the manual for your laptop. It is not very intuitive, made it did make a vague reference to hitting F10 during bootup to get to a diagnostic screen.

Compaq armada 1571. Need to know how to access BIOS to check settings.


This machine ran Windows 95 making it an older Compaq. The following link describes how on older Compaqs bios was entered. On some machines, there was no hot key for entrance and another method was used. But try the F10, i. e. function key F10 at boot.

I don't remember keys for enter in to bios Compaq Armada 1590DT


Hi

Remove the bios battery and put it back and it will not request password from you anymore.

You go to the manufacturer for them to reset it for you.

Thanks

Compaq Armada 1590DT, upgrade the RAM


I currently have three Armada's. I put XP on one - ran like kukua until I upped the memory. I think I put in a gig or 2. I found mine at www.4allmemory.com though this is not the only place in the world to get it. I put a new battery in the same computer. So, now I'm invested about $250.00 over the original investment. Frankly, I am disappointed when comparing the Armada to my new Acer Aspire 1. Pound for pound, the Acer is the better investment.

Yet... If you can live with W98, Second Ed. (which is really a better option for this particular computer), the Armada will travel, communicate, browse, e-mail, write notes and letters with the best of them. It is also very classy!

I have not had the machine open. I seem to recall that the processor can be changed ... but to what point? You will not get to anything current except for the cost! I also changed the keyboard on the Armada I use from time to time. I originally had 6 Armada's.

You may want to visit www.pcpitstop.com and have your Armada scanned for free. They will have suggestions for upgradability and they will recommend sources for you to consider.

I hope my experience is of come value to you as you contemplate your upgrade.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Crashed HD and now way to get to BIOS or BOOT SEQ.


When you power-on the computer, does anything display, such as the amount of RAM, or "press DEL to enter BIOS setup"?

If not, then you have a hardware-problem with your computer;
the "good-news" is that the data on your hard-drive is OK.
If you connect the hard-drive to another computer, you can "rescue" your data-files.

Accessing bios


Some Compaq's actually have a partition on the hard drive for the BIOS. If someone

Startup Problem


On the 1750 the setup bios settings are held on the hard drive, if you cant get any further I would suggest the drive is dead.

My compaq armada 3500 wont boot up or only shows the welcome compaq logo


I think that has to do with the BIOS if it cant boot compeletly. Try pressing the key indicated to enter into SETUP if you cant just try and look for a jumper on the motherboard that is written CMOS it may be a button or something.
