Re: compaq armanda mc700


What options are not available for you? Some examples will help me determine how to fix the problem. You can enter the BIOS on your laptop by hitting the 'F10' key at the right time when first pressing the power button. Sometimes you have to press F10 more then once so it catches at the right time.

Hve a compaq presario laptop installed win 7 but now doesnt respond ,want to install xp plz help

XP is obsolete and unless you have SP3, there are no drivers from Microsoft.
Go to and download the Win7 drivers. That will fix your problem, if they are available for your model.

I have Compaq Presario and got Virus "ThinkPoint". I want to re-install win xp but in Bios the only two option is there one Boot from Floppy and other ATAPI CD ROM . But unfortunately I have no...

Find someone with that copy of iwndows and copy the cd are use it to boot the system and fix the re-installation.... if bye chance the virus is still there, a fresh installation will get rid of it, jus be sure to get the drivers first though... (you can use drivermax for that!)

My computer will nor reboot it says to press a key to reboot, but when I do the xp screen comes up for about three seconds an goes off and does the sme thing again

Its not a hardware fault..most likely you`re OS (XP) has a corrupted file system,due to virus or a bug..Only solution would be a reinstall...If youre laptop came with xp you can do a factory reset,Otherwise grab an xp disk and boot from it and install a fresh copy..IF it happens again,Then you probably have a bad hardrive which doesnt cost alot.
Try a fresh reinstall first

NTLDR is missing error on starting the machine

When a PC system or notebook displays NTLDR is missing you can still recover with out re-installing windows. Follow the instructions on the link provided;
Scroll down to: Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
The fix is a bit different for Win 2000 &Win XP.

Good luck!

Install Windows xp off USB

If you are only trying to boot to windows then you'll need files NTLDR, Boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM, and NTOSKRNL.EXE on the USB drive. This will boot you to the windows screen. Trick is to get those files off of your windows CD onto your USB...then copy those over to the c:\ and that should also take care of boot problems if it was because of corrupted files.

Installing XP to C700

First disable sata native support because after installing xp and restarting will crash disable sata native support now when installation of window xp is complete ,reboot the computer and enter bios and select the first boot device to hard disk and also disable cd rom boot to disable .by doing this when computer starts it will start with hard disk and not with cd rom .

If this answers your question please rate this as fixed.
Thanks for using fixya support..You have a wonderful day

Dvd instalation

That's the limiting factor with laptops. You're bound to what the manufacturer provides or compatible 3rd party components. Different interface means not compatible (internally). You can try buying a Compaq DVD/RW for the Armanda, or buying an external DVD/RW that meets your needs.

Again, there's not too much freedom with parts when it comes to laptops.
