Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Says ive used all my memory up but i havent

Just bought me a COMPAQ Armada M700 with 6 Gigs i put my Fruity Loops 7 on it, and it says now i have under 500MB left on memory which makes no sense since the Fruity Loops is under 100MB and i didnt put anything else on it..You think if i use Adaware it will clear it out or something?

Armada M700 Specs

Full sytem requirements of FL Studio:

  • Pentium III or Athlon XP (any processor supporting SSE instructions) or Intel Mac with Bootcamp (running XP or Vista) or running Parallels
  • Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista (32 & 64 bit)
  • 256MB ram
  • 200MB free harddisk space
  • Windows-compatible soundcard with DirectSound drivers. ASIO drivers are required for audio recording (FL installer comes with generic Asio4All drivers)
If your system meets the minimum system requirements, it'll be your actual system resources (memory, CPU, ...) that could impose limits on your FL Studio projects.
The faster your CPU the more channels you will be able to run simultaneously and/or the more effects you will be able to use. The more memory you have the larger the samples you will be able to load.

My laptop Compaq Armada 1573D dosnot see the added memory that i have put in it is with in the spec ie 64meg

Are you sure that the new memory is fully seated? Did both side clips click tight into place against the memory chip? If this is does not solve the problem move on to step 2. Remove the original memory, keeping the new memory in place. Restart the computer. If there is nothing wrong with the memory, then i should recognise the new memory w/out any problem. If you can not boot due to "no memory present" or some similar error message then the memory chip is no good or unrecogisable by your laptop. If the chip is good and the computr starts w/no problem, then reinstall the original memory chip and restart the computer. If the problem persists the two memory chips are incompatible.

Here is what says you can install in you compaq armada.

Please let me know if this solves your problem, you can contact me at

Not sure I bought a used compaq armada e 500. it

Maybe,however there are a few things you can do to stablize the computer.First of all the system fan and the vents needs to be cleaned,secondly you need to put thermal grease between the processor and the heat sink.This should stop the computer from shutting down.As for the system time you can check the cmos battery or change it.
Good luck

How to fit memory to laptop compaq armada e500

most hp/compaq laptops will have memory slots located under the keyboard, and sometimes an additional memory slot accessed through a panel on the bottom of the notebook.
In your case, you have 2 memory slots located under the keyboard. Officially, this unit only supports up to 256 mb memory modules for a maximum of 512 MB of memory so if you already have that, be aware that larger capacity memory modules may not work.

Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....

The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Good luck!

Sound card for acer aspire 5315-2153

Go to your speaker icon on the desktop, double click it to bring up the mixer. Your Mic is muted by default. Just take the tick out of the box and you should be away.

If your running Vista, then goto Start-Settings-Control Panel-Sound
You should find the settings box for your microhone there. If not, then do the same procedure as for XP, but only click the speaker icon once and select mixer.

Hope that helps =)
