It's sadly possible your hard drive is bad or corrupted. Can you boot from a CD? Or a floppy disk? You could run diagnostics on it from a CD. If you don't have one available check the HP website for support.

When a compaq armada m700 laptop is showing non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


this usually happens when the computer is trying to boot from a disk that isn't a valid boot disk.

if you have a floppy drive plugged into the multibay and a floppy in the drive, try removing the floppy.
if there is no floppy involved, try to boot from your system recovery disks, as it's likely that the boot record on the hard drive will need repaired. your system recovery disks should walk you through the process.

Ticking noise and error message


usually the only thing that causes a "ticking" sound is a defective hard drive. Backup your data and replace the drive before it permanently fails and your data becomes unrecoverable.

Fujitsu Drive installation on Armada M700 Laptop


I would stay away from fujitsu hard drives. They are complete trash. I would stick with either Seagate Western Digital or IBM. I have the hitachi that came with the machine and although it is slow it still works after over 10 years. I would like to know more about your situation if you need help installing it tell me what it is doing.

Hard drive


The Compaq Armada M700 laptop has a PATA (or IDE) hard drive verus a SATA hard drive which is the newer standard. This computer's factory hard drive could not have been any larger than 20 GBs. However, one this size is not readily available anymore so you'll have to go larger. Here is the type of hard drive that you need: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8692373&type=product&id=1198286608739

My laptop armada m700 gets no power


the hard drive was damaged. Inside the drive, the tiny moving head took the hit. They really are not designed to take shocks like that. Many laptop mfgrs offer "industrial" duty laptops that have on-board shock absorption suspension for hard drives.
