Using Midi with a Compaq Armada 3500

When I plug in my Midi cables (from my electronic keyboard) to the adapter going into the USB port of my Compaq Armada 3500..... there's no response. I'm using Finale's "Allegro" 1998 version notation software. Have Win 98 installed.

What can I try ? or change ? Or should I just type letters?

Unless you can get the dinosaur onto a LAN somehow, about your only solution is going to be using a Laplink cable through its parallel port and the parallel port of another PC.

I wanted to search the web on the compaq armada 3500 that i got and was wondering where the cable goes and if it even gets internet


hi yes you should be able to connect a wifi dongle via the usb port on the side for your internet connection, you would have to buy a pcmcia network card if you want network connection to internet through your modem, so if you have wifi router/modem then a dongle would be better..hope this helps

How can i connect a wireless internet connection with a compaq armada E500


Get a PCMCIA to USB2 adapter that has an external 5 Volt connection to it to supply the higher current for the wireless adapter. The power can come from the USB via USB adapter cable
After installing the adapter, the USB wireless device should be installed just like in any later notebook. The wireless device requires USB2 and high power. and won't work off a powered hub.

How do i hook up midi equipment?


Dear Armada 500 user:

The previous posts I have seen in response to your question both offer good answers as to USB hardware.

I would like to elaborate a bit on your quest by advising you of some very important facts regarding the total scenario as it relates to MIDI processing for your consideration, before you invest much more time or money in your endeavor.

Not knowing your particular desired "end-result" or ultimate intention is a bit of a challenge because there are some essential O/S, processor, memory and storage requirement limitations you may encounter depending on what you are wanting to accomplish. Current MIDI sequencing application solutions are much more demanding and intended for more current system platforms that support more memory, offer faster processors and larger hard drives.

Having said this, please must consider the following if you have not done so already.

  1. You should be at least on XP SP 3, although WIndows 2000 Workstation SP 2 is an acceptable minimum O/S platform though not preferred.
  2. The Armada 500 is limited to 512 MB RAM. This is a problem w/XP as a min. of 1GB RAM is recommended for XP SP3. It was introduced in 2002, so it is 7 years old!
  3. You'll probably need to upgrade your hard drive as the standard configs for this model maxed out at 30GB. (Note: you will probably only be able to upgrade to maybe an 80 GB HD due to BIOS limitations on supported drive capacities for that unit.) Check Compaq Armada 500 BIOS upgrade specs before you do this. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=96717&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96231&taskId=135
Unless you are planning to use an older (5+ years old)
sequencing application which supports the limitations I have previously cited, you cannot efficiently implement a MIDI sequencing solution without experiencing limited performance, time-outs or possible compatability problems on this system.

Though MIDI data processing itself is NOT processor intensive, the applications associated with current MIDI sequencing solutions may well NOT be very compatible with this system due to the O/S, processor and memory support limitations.

I have addressed this very issue with numerous clients over the years, and it is at best, a frustrating endeavor.

Check this PCMCIA to USB 2 adapter as another option: IOGEAR GPU202 2 Port USB 2.0 PCMCIA CardBus Card You'll also need an A to D convertor/mixer/interface like the M-AUDIO Fast Track Pro 24-bit 96KHz USB Interface 4 x 4 Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface with Preamps. I recommend these interfaces almost exclusively to our home studio clients. Go to www.newegg.com for these and other adapter options.

With some tweaking and a little give and take, this can be perhaps accomplished with what you have, but I would recommend a newer notebook or PC & Windows O/S platform for best results with MIDI sequencing. I wish you well...

If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.

If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.

Midi - in on Dell In spiron 6400 sound card


That's correct. Most laptops do not have a midi port installed.
To record from your synthesizer, you'll need a midi-to-usb adapter. There are simple cables from usb to midi.

For example this one:
