I need help on restoring my compaq armada e500

Hi Welcome to FixYa!
You could try these steps on restoring your laptop into its factory defaults.
1)Turn off your computer if it is on. Wait for the system to shut down completely. Once it is off, press the "Power" button to turn it back on. Press the "F10" button at the top of the keyboard repeatedly as soon as you see the screen turn on. This will let you enter the setup menu.
2)Use the arrow keys to move between the various menu tabs at the top of the screen. Press the "Right" button until the "File" tab is highlighted, then press the "Enter" button to enter this menu. Here you can make changes to the settings of your computer, or in this instance, restore factory default settings.
3)Use the "Up" and "Down" arrow buttons to move to the "Restore Defaults" option, then press enter. You will see a screen asking "Are You Sure You Wish to Restore System Defaults?" Press the "Y" button to continue. The system will begin restoring your default settings. Do not press a button until a screen says "System Defaults Restored."
4)Use the arrow keys to move down to the "Save Changes and Exit" option and press "Enter." The system will save your changes and automatically reboot your computer. You do not need to press "F10" this time as the computer will start Windows normally. You will see the factory settings have been restored once the system loads.
Hope this could help!

    My boot priority order changed now my computer wont go to my desktop

    Sorry, I hope I was not too late. You can fix priority order issue by restoring the default value of BIOS. You can do that by doing the steps below:
    1. Reboot your Acer Aspire 5315 notebook.
    2. Wait about 30 seconds until you see the Acer logo on your laptop screen.
    3. Press the "F2" key on the keyboard to enter the Acer Aspire 5315 laptop BIOS menu.
    4. Select the BIOS option "Load Default Setting" using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Then press "Enter."
    5. Press the "F10" key to save the BIOS that is reset to the factory default settings.
    Hope this helps.

    Sounds like you have accidentally selected a French or Canadian keyboard. You need to reselect English.
    From the Microsoft web:
    1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clickingControl Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
    2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change keyboards.
    3. Under Installed services, click Add.
    4. Double-click the language you want to add, double-click the text services you want to add, select the text services options you want to add, and then click OK.

      If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

    My Toshiba Satellite A70-S256 PC Notebook no sounds coming from earphone jack or laptop speaker.

    Just make sure the speaker looking icon at the right bottom corner of te screen doesn't have a red slash across it. If it does, move the cursor over it and click the left mouse button to remove it.

    Hope that was the cause and helps.
