Compaq Armada E500 is working, but display is so dark, I need a flashlight to see the display to navigate. ideas please?

Backlight or the inventer is gone, check www.pchub.com for parts. I got one of these laptops for around 20usd, it may not be worth the repair. You can also use a external display, the laptop has a VGA - for a desktop display connector and a tv connector aswell.

VGA- blue connector 3 lines of pins on the back.
TV connector, yellow, round connector on the right side.

Hi,Have you installed new RAM recently?if so it might not be properly seated,it's worth reseating it and see if that helps,or try removing RAM sticks alternately it may be a faulty one.

Please help

Turn off and on the power button by hand and press keys:
Ctrl+Alt in two finger and repeatedly hit the G key (if it's
not working try again by press them three the same time
down).

You will see the screen goes through some texts and
codes. And look at the bottom it say to hold down the F
key to uninstall Goback.

I held the F key for a while and let it go.

Turn the power button off by hand and back on again.( try
this method a couple of times)

If that doesn't work then try this link

BIOS error

do you have the installation disk, by chance? you can boot from that and see what you can see. Just do NOT reformat the drive. I repeat, DO NOT reformat the drive.

Compaq armada e500 wont start from hibernation, only message on screen'recovering hibernation state' !

Good day David!
Can you tell me a little about why you can not get to the information? (Damage, password problem, etc)
Ron-
And a good day to you too, teacherep!
Ugg! Sounds like you have a nasty one there!
If it was running XP (or similar) before, then the amount of memory probably should not be an issue. Can't say why you only got a partial install, but sounds like that's what happened. If you have some recovery disks for the originally installed OS, I'd try to reinstall that.
Have you tried to bring it up in safe mode to see what happens? Or, can't you get that far? Do you have anything at all showing up on the display, even flickers or flashes?

Compaq e500 boot up problem

If it were my laptop here is what I would do: 1. Install a new hard drive. 2. Install the operating system. 3. After an anti-virus program was installed and updated, I would connect the old hard drive to the laptop using one of those external USB hard drive adapter cables. 4. If the old drive proves to be readable, copy documents/photos/bookmarks to the new hard drive. Hope this helps.
