Question about Compaq Armada 7400 Notebook

2 Answers

My compaq armada 7400 laptop is extremely slow. I have reloaded XP and have minimal files in it but the computer is still VERY slow. When the screen display clears a window it slowly erases from top to bottom. Is there a fix for this?

Couple of things,

First, disable XP's visual effect. Right click on My Computer and click on property, click on Advance Tab, Click on Setting under Performance, Check the box adject for best performance and click on OK.. it should speed up your computer a bit

Also, check your RAM and upgrade it if its is less than 1 GB.

I am glad to HELP YOU!

Due the technical circumstances [ max 256 Mb SDRAM, processor Pentium II 300 MHz] you cannot ask for more...
But you can improve a little bit the performances by downloading and installing a great software called CCleaner. It's FREE and you can have it from HERE.
It will help you to
# clean up the "****" on your machine [this is where the name comes from: CCleaner = C(rap)Cleaner...]
# it will clean up the REGISTRY.
Another trick that you can do is to DEFRAGMENT your hard-drive. You can use that one from
START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > Disk Defragmenter
or you can have a better one from HERE. It's called DEFRAGGLER and it's free and it does a great job.



GOOD LUCK!

Wireless card for compaq armando 7400 laptop


Any wireless card (PCMCIA slot or USB) will do provided a Windows 2000 driver is available for it. Unlike Windows XP and Vista where a built in wireless manager for the OS can be used, you must use the wireless manager that comes with the driver cd for your card. As for wireless type, Get either WIreless G or N. You can use Wireless B, but you get better range and throughput with G or N.

Below is the URL for compaq's Service Manual for that model. This shows you the details of every single part & how to disassemble and reassemble every screw. Surely it has to be in this document, somewhere. --> ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/supportinformation/forum/portables/7400msg.pdf
