Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
How can one format a compaq armada?
also what is the best windows to install after?
Im mostly a home browser. can you help?
I would recommend Win2k for your system. Just a personal preference on older systems. Both XP and Vista are fairly visual and the Armada line weren't too beefed up with processors and such. As far as formatting amusedgeek here gave you your best bet. I know there is an option through My Computer and by right clicking on your C:\ drive but if I remember correctly attempts at that were unsuccessful.

This is an older system so Vista is definitely out, it MIGHT load but it would be really slow.
Best bet is probably XP Home, you could install Windows 98SE but a lot of the newer programs will not work with it.
Boot to the installation CD, you will have the option to format the drive as part of the installation procedure.
Device Drivers for your computer are located here:
I suggest you download them and burn them to CD first because you network adapter may no work after the reinstall until you load these.
