Armada M700 (Pentium II-366, 10GB) Random Crashes by [email protected]
Hi, I would be grateful for any ideas with a strange problem with my Compaq Armada M700. The computer suddenly crashed in Windows 2000 which had been running fine for ages. After a clean format and reinstall I found it was still very unstable. Just in case it was a dodgy cd, I tried formatting...

Armada M700 - worth loading XP? by Jonathan E
Hi I've resurrected an old Compaq Armada M700. Finally got all the drivers up and running with Win98SE. I was pondering upgrading to XP but wasn't sure if the machine could hack it (or if I'd be able to find all the drivers). Spec is:-

Armada M700 DVD-ROM Drive and ATI Mobility Pro Graphics Card by Karl Shaw
Hi again all, My friend has an old company laptop of which he may be getting upgraded. I was considering taking some of the memory from that system as it is the same as the M300. My 1st question is: Can I also take the DVD-ROM drive from it and use it in my M300's Mobile Expansion Unit instead...

Armada M700 fan died by Ryan
My fan died on the Armada M700. I can't get it to start spinning again and XP reboots every 20 minutes or so. I'm guessing it is doing this because the laptop is getting too hot. I have taken all the screws out of the casing that I can find but I still can't take it apart to expose the...

I have seen others complaining about their Compaq Armada M700 laptops refusing to boot. My one has the same problem. If I start it on battery alone then there is no drive activity but the caps, num and scroll lock lights all flash. If I start it on AC then the capslock, numlock and scoll lock...

Armada M700 running Windows 3.1? by [email protected]
I seriously want to get my Compaq armada m700 to run Windows 3.1. I have no clue how. In messing around with it, I trashed my WinXP partition, so let's assume that I'll be starting with a blank hard disk. Idealy, I would like to end up with Windows 3.1 running on a 500mb partition, and Windows...

ATI Driver & DVD Issue Update by SSeaW
Well I discovered what the problem was, at least I think I did. I had uninstalled WinDVD and decided just to use Windows Media Player to watch DVD's. Since it's only a notebook and I don't have 5.1 or 6.1 speakers connected to it why bother with paying 50 or 60 dollars for high quality DVD...
