We ran Windows 98 on it and mainly used it as a travel companion when we were away from our desktops. When we returned the next morning, the laptop was mysteriously off. The laptop would do this every time we tried to boot it up. After returning home, even our father could not figure out what was wrong. So we stored the laptop in its Targus Compaq Armada m300 Notebook case and put it on a shelf in our closet. It remained on that shelf for four years. After completing the Intro to PC Architecture class at Intel last week, I was inspired to try my hand again at fixing my Compaq laptop.


I dusted off the Targus carrying case and setup the laptop. Surprisingly, the thing still turned on…and exhibited the same problem as it did four years ago. I turned it off and thought Compaq Armada m300 Notebook a bit. I had no idea where an hardware components were located on the thing. I know desktop hardware…not laptop hardware. However, I read somewhere about a website called www.

I took it out, waited a minute, and plugged it back in. Upon Compaq Armada m300 Notebook to boot, I still got the Compaq splash screen freeze.
