I just got this laptop and even though it works, it has a weird way of
got two power buttons and you press either of them once to turn the
computer on and then again
to get it to start loading windows(if you just press one of the power
buttons once it will turn on
but just show a "compaq" splash screen).
Is this normal, did they make this laptop this way?

How long did you leave it on the splash screen? Once it powers up it
should "just work".
The E500 works the same way as the M500 and M300; both buttons are
programmable ACPI events. Perhaps there is some issue in your
particular BIOS rev; I would try flashing the latest BIOS off HP's web

The one on the left isPOWER
The one on the right is standby ( but if you do not use standby, = same

Look thru the manual and then check startup settings in BIOS
