Compaq Armada V300

Dear all,

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.

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.)

Please let me know.

MY LAP TOP MESSAGE SAYS... 1782 DISK CONTROLLER


You are getting this mess because the system is not able to detect a boot partition on the hdd or may be it is not able to detect the HDD itself.

Try to remove the HDD(hard disk) and re-seat it, Also make sure that there is no disk in the CD drive (in case the first boot device in the BIOS is set as CD drive).

Go to BIOS by pressing F10 (system setup) and check if the HDD is detected in BIOS.

Try to run a recovery by pressing F11 on first screen after power on.

Please get back for any further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

you should first download this manual. i believe you need to remove the keyboard....which is fairly simple if you have a small screwdriver.
