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!

    I have an older model armada 7800 that I am trying to get connected to the internet. Where does the ethernet cable go on this model? The only place I see for it is in the back, but the cable does not fit...

    It may not have a place for an Ethernet cable. These older laptops required special cards to be attached to them or inserted into a special port for them to work with an Ethernet cable. The port your referring to might be for a phone cable which means it would have a modem and be dial-up only.

    My compaq armada 7800 display is very poor

    It's probably the lcd, but it could also be the GPU, lcd cable and or the motherboard.

    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.

    The screen on my compaq armada is blank. i can

    The display panel itself is probably fine, but its backlight isn't working. Without the backlight you can't see the display. There's a small circuit board called the inverter inside the display that provides power for the backlight.

    It's pretty easy to replace the inverter. You need to take out whatever screws are holding the front half of the display to the back and remove the front. The inverter is at the bottom of the display, held in by a couple of screws. A couple of cables plug into it.

    Here is a place that claims they have the inverter in stock for $7.39. That is one fantastic price! Get one of those and a set of miniature Phillips screwdrivers and you'll be able to fix this yourself.

    Keyboard problems

    You need to download and install the proper drivers from Compaq (now HP). Go to and do the following:

    Click "Get Support" at the top.

    Enter "armada m700" in the "Enter a product number" box.

    Click the little submit button that looks like ">>".

    Click "Download drivers and software".

    Click one of the "Windows XP" links. Doesn't matter which one.

    Scroll down and click the "Download" buttons that correspond to each driver you want to download.

    Install the drivers you downloaded.
