Check first if the CPU is working by connecting an external monitor. Do not forget to activate the external monitor connection (function keys). If the computer works llike this, then the monitor is probably defective. If it did not work, dont waste effort in checking the LCD.

Hi I got a compaq evo N800c and it had a Swedish windows when i bought it.I contacted a friend who installed the English version, but it got expired after 30 days and now i cannot access my windows since...

It is always adivisable to get genuine copies of Windows.. i recommend you purchase an activation key from here otherwise, try to search the net for keys online.. you could google for key indicating your exact windows version.. you will get them but remember these are not genuine and you will have no access to MS updates.

So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Compaq Armada M700, Dim Screen

There is a dimmer function that is part of the keyboard on most notebooks. You use the Fn key and some other key (Mine is F1 and F1) Look for what looks like Sun in blue print on the key. You should find 2 of them. One will be the brightness up and the other brightness down. You can try those.

More likely, something has come loose internally.
1. It could be the backlight for the screen is broken or a connection loose. You should be able to see the light when you look at the side of the display.
2. The AC power connector may have been broken and the notebook is only on battery power. By default most systems are dimmer when on battery power. Check to see if your charge indicator light is on. If not, that may be the problem.

I hope this helps.

Battery fully charged, or is it.

Good Day Blunty, It's one of two things, the more likely of the two is that that battery is totaly shot, laptop battery's are usually only good for 1.5 years then loose there ability to retain a charge. It sounds like that one's just done. Unfortunatly that those batterys cost more than there worth, 100 bucks or more. The second possibility is the power cord, is that the original power cord for that? Or was on that was bought aftermaket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge. Also remove the battery and check for corrison. You can build your own battery fot a a laptop if got a few hours time, and are good with a soldering gun. You get the litium ion cells you need for about 40 bucks. Good Luck L8R
