I have an older model armada 7800 that I am trying to get connected to the internet. Where does the ethernet cable go on this model? The only place I see for it is in the back, but the cable does not fit...


It may not have a place for an Ethernet cable. These older laptops required special cards to be attached to them or inserted into a special port for them to work with an Ethernet cable. The port your referring to might be for a phone cable which means it would have a modem and be dial-up only.

I don't remember keys for enter in to bios Compaq Armada 1590DT


Hi

Remove the bios battery and put it back and it will not request password from you anymore.

You go to the manufacturer for them to reset it for you.

Thanks

AC Adapter


It should have the power cord as according to this page courtesy of HP:

http://partsurfer.hp.com/cgi-bin/spi/main?sel_flg=partlist&model=ARMADA1500&HP_model=291450-007&modname=Compaq+Armada+notebook+PC+1590DMT+(291450-007)&template=main&plist_sval=ALL&plist_styp=flag&dealer_id=&callingsite=&strsrch=&keysel=%3F&catsel=%3F

They don't show a part number for the ac adaptor though which in normal circumstances you should get that to when you buy it straight thru HP but they may be out of them.

You can find one off of ebay and it does exist as according to this auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&print=all&item=130303693439&category=31511

So definitely you can get one from Ebay if all else fails. Hope this helps you.

Armada M700 & Linux XP 2006


Yes I used the latest version of Ubuntu Linux.

Get it here
Ubuntu 8.10

You will need to install NDIS in linux after the install to use the windows drivers for your wireless card if you have one. Sometimes older wireless cards will work but most of the time you need the NDIS to use the windows disk that comes with your wireless device(if you are using one) Your hard wired ethernet port should be detected automatically as well as all your other drivers(since the machine is old)
Good luck..if you need any more help I will be around. No other compatibility issues exist, and it will run a lot faster than XP. I would suggest 512MB of Ram but 256 will handle it fine.

Can I get the internet on compaq armada 1700 laptop?


That phone line will only be for actual phone lines.. as it will be a modem.

If the lappy has an ethernet port (slightly larger than a phone port, but looks the same) you could use that with an ethernet cable to a DSL modem. (the modem has the phone wire plugged into it)

Most laptops have an ethernet port, but yours might be a bit too old perhaps? If that's the case, you can buy either a USB to ethernet adapter (but you might not have that either) or a PCMCIA ethernet card. The latter will definitely work for you, and can be bought second hand VERY cheaply... if not for nothing.

I really hope it has something a bit newer than '95 though... otherwise just getting the internet to work could be a problem. Good luck!

Compaq armada 1580DMT


Sound's like you've had a hsrd drive crash. The message 32768 kb ok is a memory test, this indicates that something went wrong with the operating system the last time it was shut down. It should, after the memory test, either correct the system problem or give an error code. Since it does nothing, this indicates that the hard drive has failed and, unfortunately, needs to be replaced.
