Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
When i press the on button i get the the 3 indicator leds for a few seconds but nothing else. Have tried 2 batteries and 2 power supplys so there are ruled out. any ideas???
I recently had this problem. I know this will sound weird - 1. Plug out the power supply. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Wait for about 2 minutes for the residual current todrain. 4. Plug in the power and immediately slide in the battery. This worked most of the time. I warned you, this sounds weird.

An immediate boot fail normally either indicates a flat cmos battery or a faulty processor. My advice is to take to a qualified repair shop, as notebook are not as easy to work with as desktops and finding the cmos battery alone can be a headache.
