Can't log in without administrator password

When it is starting up windows go into setup. A computer always has some kind of override. You can hack computers with this so use it wisely. Go through each of those tabs on the top until you see accounts in them. You should be able to override the old password with a new one.

How do i connect crw-785 to compaq armada e500

This e500 has USB1.0 and transfer rate will be slow. If you use Win 98 then install the USB driver (get on web) first. Install software then plug in the USB lead from the crw-785 and don't forget to plug in the DC adaptor for the drive, (e500 USB port does not have enough power to run external drives other than some older thumbdrives).

I try to unmute my volume on my compaq presario

Try updating the hardware driver for it.

Assuming that you are using some flavor of Windows, and guessing it might be XP ....

Right-clickie your My Computer and select the last item in the list, which is called Properties.

Select the Properties tab that is labeled Hardware.
On the Hardware tab, there is a button for Device Manager - click that one.

Look down the list for something called Sound and click the + beside it. In that list, there should be one named something like Integrated Audio. It may have some little symbol next to it, like an ! or perhaps a red X ....

Right-clickie the Integrated Audio (or whatever its called) and choose the option for Update Driver. Allow it to search for the driver Automatically when the Wizard opens up ... it will connect to the internet, find a suitable driver for you, and install it.

That should fix it.

If that does not fix it, you may have an actual hardware failure. If Sound is important enough, you may wish to have someone actually look at it for you.

What is Dry Boot of laptop and how to perform it?

Dry boot is a way to reset HP laptops. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. Here is how to do it.
Disconnect the power cord, remove the battery, press and hold the power button for about a minute. Then re-insert the battery and power cord and try to turn it back on again.
If you are still having the same issue, remove the battery but leave the power cord and try to turn it on. Oh yeah, disconnect any USB devices and a monitor (if you connected a monitor to your laptop), make sure there is no disc in the drive either.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

How can I adjust brigthness using other option than F9, because it does not work

Per the user manual, the brightness is toggled by holding the Fn Key and pressing F10. You post made no reference to the Fn Key being pressed. If using an external keyboard press scroll lock twice then F10.

Problemes with cd driver

This would indicate to me the optical drive is failing, and not a problem with a driver.I'll try to keep it short.............Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a deviceDevice in this case is the CD optical drive.Windows O/S wasn't stated, but I suspect it's WinXP.An optical drive is a mechanical device. As such, it is rated in hours of usage.And as a mechanical device it has a 'Life Cycle'.So many hours, and it's done. Mechanical devices eventually wear out.http://www.ebay.com/itm/COMPAQ-ARMADA-M700-E500-7400-EVO-N600C-N610C-N620C-LAPTOP-DVD-CD-RW-COMBO-DRIVE-/280920547496?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item41682b60a8For additional questions please post in a Comment.Regards,joecoolvette
