Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
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
Take the jumper off restart, shut down, then put it back on again
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.
