Compaq armada 1580DMT

This laptop just topped working all of a sudden. I use it for writing, and do not really need this lap top for internet purposes. When I turn the laptop on it says:
32768 KB OK

and gets hung up right there. When I hit enter or any of the keys, nothing happens. Any clue? (my laptop is acutally a compaq armada 1580DMT)

Sound's like you've had a hsrd drive crash. The message 32768 kb ok is a memory test, this indicates that something went wrong with the operating system the last time it was shut down. It should, after the memory test, either correct the system problem or give an error code. Since it does nothing, this indicates that the hard drive has failed and, unfortunately, needs to be replaced.

I have a Compaq M700 lap top. power failure , Won't boot up ?

You need to find out if the power supply was damaged, it would have been the first to take a hit, remove the main battery to see if it will boot because a bad one will load the system down in some cases. One trick that might work, unplug power supply from laptop and remove main battery, now press and hold power for 2 minutes to drain off residual voltage and reset the processor, finally install everything back and power up.

Need an electrical cord for Compaq Armada 1580DMT

I am providing you a couple of part numbers for the cord that you require,,,,255135-001 255135-011
255135-021 255135-031 .

You can call up Hp and ask them for the part, I believe that its not available with them..
So you can either try it Ebay or getting in touch with the local store would be the best option.

Hit what key to get into bios? are there restore keystrokes to restore?

Usually, for Compaq laptops, they Keystroke is F10. If this doesn't work you need to upgrade your BIOS in order to be able to do that. To do so, download this file: Download the file, create a diskette from it. Then boot from the diskette. Be very careful and make sure that no power loss occurs.
You might turn the notebook into a door-stop otherwise.

2.) Whatever you do, I would suggest to check whether access to BIOS-Setup with F10 on startup still works.
If not, the DIAGS partition where Diagnostics- and Setup-software is store would be missing.
