Question about Compaq Armada 1750 Notebook
I have a laptop with no operating system.I purchased a hard drive but my boot up disk for Windows ME still does nothing when I install it.I get the Compaq logo when I turn on the computer and when I press the Fn key with Esc button I see a little box that says BIOS 6/4/99 but nothing happens.Any ideas?
When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.
