The exceeding power cannot be fixed, the port are only allotted and capable of a certain power range. If the ports are faulty, they will need to be replaced, some are removable and some are soldier directly to the motherboard.

How do i connect crw-785 to compaq armada e500


This e500 has USB1.0 and transfer rate will be slow. If you use Win 98 then install the USB driver (get on web) first. Install software then plug in the USB lead from the crw-785 and don't forget to plug in the DC adaptor for the drive, (e500 USB port does not have enough power to run external drives other than some older thumbdrives).

Compaq armada e500 and webcam


See if you can track down the power rating for the ports on the laptop, and the rating on the cam. This will tell you whether it's the cam exceeding the power or bad ports, and you will also know the power requirement for getting a different cam if necessary.

It will need a driver to work, but the machine shouldn't turn off or shut down. It should give a "found new hardware" prompt. It sounds like either the cam is exceeding the power output of the port, or the port is malfunctioning and needs repair.

Mouse


I had the same problem with my compaq armada e500. I've been using an external PS/2 mouse for over a year and just now fixed the built-in touchpad buttons. In the mouse settings applet in control panel there is a setting for click speed. In Win 2k there is a little jack-in-the-box test icon. I moved the click speed slider to the slowest setting and my mouse came back like magic. I've searched and found lots of people with this issue, I can't say this is the only solution, but it certainly was easy. Of course, first I downloaded all the original COMPAQ Armada e500 notebookPC touchpad software from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=96717&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96231&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=181

BTW, I appreciate the workarounds offered by posters here and on other tech support sites, but when someone wants to fix something, it doesn't help to say, "Oh, just give it up and spend money to get around the problem."

If you are still out there, dave, Instead of a USB hub, may I suggest (if you have the resources) picking up a PCMCIA card with at least two more USB ports? They are less than $100 and it really saved my neck when my onboard USB died. Don't be offended, but just in case you haven't noticed you have them, the slots are on the right side of your E500, just to the left of the headset and mic ports. The e500 has two slots and the cards come in different sizes for different laptops, but ours is (luckily) pretty standard. I bought my card at BestBuy.

Compaq Armada Serial Port Broken


Do you really need the serial port? You should be able to find a USB to serial converter fairly cheaply.

Boot up failure


Fixed disc is refering to your hardrive and the fact that it has been unable to read a bad sector on your hard drive, that sector probably being where the boot.ini file resides. You will have to get the drive checked out, by means of an 2.5" ide to usb powered connector, which will connect to another pc's usb port to enable you to perform a disk check and a repair if possible of the bad sectors, or take to a local repairer where they should have the required adapters.
