Help I have a Compaq Armada V300. First it was given me a 1782 problem - I put in a new HDD now it's given me a GRRRRR sound and again the 1782 problem started again. How do I set the jumpers and BIOS on this machine. Also the Fan does not work when I put the machine on power.

Re: Compaq Armada V300
Sounds as if the board is starting to fail. Try what I've listed bellow. If that doesn't work then try a bios flash. If it's still giving you the same problem after trying all of these, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the motherboard.
Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart or Take the jumper off restart, shut down, then put it back on again or Remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once . After booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you to press F1. Reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)

If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.
If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.
