Question about Compaq Armada 1585DMT (305000-007) PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have a compaq armada 1585dmt laptop. When powered on I get a power on password which I don't know, my kids got it from their Grandma and it booted up fine when they got but it has sat for a couple years now. I removed the RTC battery and battery pack and did get Windows 95 to boot up but then my mouse or keyboard does not work so I am stuck there. Is there a master password or some way to get the keyboard and mouse to work? Thank you, Doris Christian ladyminx30@yahoo.com

Save yourself some time and effort, if there are files on the drive take out the drive and copy them using an ide to usb adapter on a more modern pc.
It is not worth the time and effort as W95 is no longer supported and it won't run any useful software (in my opinion).

My laptop compaq armada1700 ask me power-on password what can i do?


Follow the instructions of the service manual for the Armada 1700 (you need to have some skills):

2.2 Clearing Passwords
The power-on password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:

1. Remove all battery packs from the battery bay and MultiBay, if applicable.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait five minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power.
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST, a "162 System Options not set" message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10.Proceed with the troubleshooting procedures.

Point 10 means you need to do the setup via disquette to set the date and time again, to avoid the "162 system option not set" message of the POST.

My compaq armada 3500 wont boot up or only shows the welcome compaq logo


I think that has to do with the BIOS if it cant boot compeletly. Try pressing the key indicated to enter into SETUP if you cant just try and look for a jumper on the motherboard that is written CMOS it may be a button or something.
