Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, My name is Constance. I have a Compaq Armada 7770 series 2890 A. I have not used this in years. I do not know what a dimond shape to the left of #'s 1,2,3, and 4 mean. Nor do I know what A, down arrow and 1 mean. This a windows 98. Could you be so kind as to send me info or download info for me about my laptop? And how could I download this computer to make it more up to date? Oh yes! The BIG problem is when I am using the computer I will go into different sights and all of a sudden a somewhat grey oblong box appears and reads: You have just done something illegal. and it shuts off and goes right to my desktop. I know this system is old...BUT it is GREAT. HELP!!!

My compaq armada 7770 just doesn't come on anymore. i have so much old work disks that i need and in the past i would purchase another 7770 and just take the drive out of one and put it in the next one. ...

why not take out the drive
and put it in a cheap USB driver enclosure
now any PC can read all those files.
why not.?
why make this so hard,its just files.
nothing more complex that say Fat32 files or NTFS.
you dont have IT departments to do this for you?

here , i had to read the
compaq armada 7770 spec. to see it guts.
its got a relic PATA drive, aka then as IDE.
this size is (length /width/depth) 2.5" i think the specs are rare !!!
so buy this.

plug in the drive the usb connect it and bam ,all data there
go to my documents folder and sure there.
i cant guess how or where you put documents, only you know that
but anyone can search the whole hdd, for say *.DOC
or pdf. or?

Forgot password and cant login to my compaq armada e500

The Armada series are really nice pice of art. A bit old but nice... so, u can't login on windows? Use a Windows XPE (yeah, with "E") CD... on the iNet are many of those, and most of them come with a software for "unlocking" any user password of Windows XP.

And if u are talking about the password of the BIOS then u will have to open u notebook and remove the CMOS battery for minimun 1 minute. That will restore the default settings of your notebook, the settings that comes from factory, deleting any configuration made by the user.

Key board

You don't remove the keyboard to remove the HDD. It is accessed on the edge of the left side of the unit.
