Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen brightness control is gone

The original operating system win95 (Compaq supplied) for the Armada M700 included software (bios settings?) for the screen, volume, etc. accessed thru the F-keys. I had to install Windows NT2000 to solve some serious problems and now have no access to any controls. the memory is upgraded, the computer runs fine, but the screen is hard to see. Power or battery, doesnt matter. Can someone guide me if it is possible to adjust the brightness or contrast ? Thanks.

Ricky, I had a similar problem which I overcame by getting a softpaq from Compaq for.

and download sp22442.exe (2.5 MB) - this should hopefully fix it for you. Chris

How do i get to the recovery partion on compaq armada m700


Dear Lizanne,

To get to the recovery partition on your Compaq Armada M700, turn on the notebook and press F11 repeatedly until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. Then, follow the on-screen instructions.

If your notebook originally came with Windows XP or an earlier version of Windows, try pressing F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

Hope you may find these instructions useful!

Best regards,

Miguel L. Martins

I forgot my password to get into the bios of my Compaq armada laptop. Is there another way to get past that password besides taking the battery out? It did not work.


Typically, removing the mother board battery will remove all user settings, including the password you put in. The mother board battery is not the computer battery. Find it in one of the little compartments in the bottom. Again, typically, the password may be persistent for up to 30 minutes. Remove the battery and reattach it tomorrow.

How will I know if my laptop Compaq Armada m700 is fully charged already?


Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.

Right click on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen > properties > notification area > tick the Power under System Icons - Select Which Items to always show > Apply > OK > float the mouse on the battery icon to see % of charge and charge time remaining.

I hope this helps.

Error Message: F12=Network Service Boot


The BIOS may have reset to the default settings. Sounds like this was originally a workstation on a Corporate Domain Network. Access the BIOS and reset the boot order for CD first, then Hard Drive - you can even disable Network as a boot option. Power spike won't affect the Hard Drive contents, but it can reset a BIOS. Your win2000 should be intact.

Compaq Armada M700, Dim Screen


There is a dimmer function that is part of the keyboard on most notebooks. You use the Fn key and some other key (Mine is F1 and F1) Look for what looks like Sun in blue print on the key. You should find 2 of them. One will be the brightness up and the other brightness down. You can try those.

More likely, something has come loose internally.
1. It could be the backlight for the screen is broken or a connection loose. You should be able to see the light when you look at the side of the display.
2. The AC power connector may have been broken and the notebook is only on battery power. By default most systems are dimmer when on battery power. Check to see if your charge indicator light is on. If not, that may be the problem.

I hope this helps.
