I cant login to my Compaq Armada 1700 because i forgot the login and password please help


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Login Password?

Which Operating System?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Armada 1700 - When I turn it on, it states, 162 - system options not set. What is wrong? I only use this laptop for journal notes. Thank you - Dennis DEMAR12AC


You may need to locate, test and replace the battery deep inside the unit. It has the shape of a watch battery and may be specific to your make and model. Sometimes called the CMOS battery, it keeps the machine remembering its configuration while it is turned off.

Help with compaq armada 1700


Sounds like your Hard Drive is gone, or you have a floppy disk in drive or cd in drive, could be a CMOS setting wrong also, but I would suspect the Hard drive is shot on a machine this old. P.S. I am running an Armada 1700 right now. Your HDD door should be on the bottom of the machine about 3"X3" with a 1"X3" lip that is hinged and has a catch on it, you need to release the catch and see if it even has a hard drive in the caddy, it will slide towards the front of the machine, slide it back towards the back it is only held in by the cover's foam and may have come dislodged. Some things to try.

Most laptops will run without the batteries, its only a few that won't however I do not know for your specific laptop. So its a possibility. Although, the two lights mean that the unit has power so its likely that it doesn't need a battery and the laptop won't boot.

Do you know what the green flashing lights represent?

Forget the diagnostics. If things are that bad then do a complete format and reinstall. Trying to fix problems on any windows platform usually leaves you with more problems to solve. Bite the bullet and give you and your laptop a new lease on life. BMW
