Compaq armada sb nc 1000 problem

Hi i got an old compaq laptop from a friend but he says it was wiped clean before he got it, apparently it was a school computer . when i turn it on it does a memory scan 0 to 32768 kb ok then a screen comes up that says ''non system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready''. there are no disks in the drives and i can not seem to go any further with it. the bios wont come up when i hit f10. if i hit fn esc a small box that says compaq bios appears but i cant change anything in it i think i need to reinstall the compaq bios then the op system, but i need to know where or how to get the disk.i did not get any disks with it and i think it boots from the floppy first. is there any way to bring it back to life ? any help would be appreciated

Common with old compaq Laptops, when the HDD Fails generally it takes time to get into BIOS ( may be not ), Problem, stumps down to NO HDD , try to check the HDD Bay , check for the noice from HDD..you can do DOS boot (win98) from CD or Floppy and do FDISK...if it shows HDD , not much to worry it not ....finally you may need to replace the HDD.

Hope ti helps....Keep the hope :)

I've found it is highly unlikely to run an old DOS program in Win2000 so I have decided to setup an old computer with Win 3.1 and use it for my DOS software.

Armada 1700 upgrade


hello
No you cant upgrade your processor.
also to change processor is very complicated in a old compaq.
and if you should manage to find a faster processor to your old compaq it not gonna make your laptop faster. the mother board and ram memory are still to old.
