You have a CMOS password on your computer. If you for some reason do remember the password and get into it, then please take the CMOS password off. It only causes heartache.

I cant login to my Compaq Armada 1700 because i forgot the login and password please help


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Login Password?

Which Operating System?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Compaq 1500c won't power on.


first thing you should check is the ac adapter, most are made cheaper today,
next is the ac jack in the back, you can take a toothpic or anything to see if the pin moves at all
if it moves just a little , the ac jack could be bad

Check MS minimums here:

It will tell you if there is any chance in hades of installing XP but if you only 'meeting' and not exceeding, you will be disappointed.

If (as I suspect) you are running 98se, you might be better off reinstalling.
I am not enamored of the differences.
