Hi - I bought this MB during the last week, (brand new) from my supplier in South Africa. I installed the MB after the CPU, (P4 2.6Ghz) and memory (2 X 1Gb Esquire Brand) was fitted. It also has a 256 MB graphics card installed. Problems: I installed the graphics card in the first PCIX slot - the machine only beeps, and after I removed it and installed it into the second PCIX slot the machine came on. I started the software installation (XP Prof). After the initial copy of the software, it restarts, and it seems to starts the installation - after a minute or two it gives a screen of death. I changed everything now, and reseated eveything. I even disabled the IDE drives, and is now only working with a SATA drive. Can you perhaps give an indication of where or what I can still check what might be causing this? Kobus

Hello, one of the tools that provide better results is the following: http://www.softpedia.com/get/S...
You could also try zero formatting your drive first and once
finished, do a normal formatting job. Best way is to visit the flash
drive's manufacturer and see if they provide a zero level formatting
tool. If they do not, you can use the following: http://hddguru.com/software/HD...
Run the tool from link above, and once finished zero formatting you
can do a normal formatting. Zero level formatting will practically set
your flash drive to factory settings. My advice is, to run the zero
levelling format and once finished, run the Hp formatting tool
Hello there michael: This is a fairly easy computer to upgrade the memory on what you need to do is First unplug the computer and ensure it is off. now look at the keyboard and you will see 4 black tabs towards the top of the keyboard these are the release tabs for the keyboard get a small flattip screwdriver and insert it in the back of them and they will slide down towards the space bar to unlock. do this for eack of the tabs . now the keyboard will be able to lift out from the top and swing back towards you Now you can see the memory modules M700 Laptop takes the PC100 SDRAM SODIMMs. Memory Type, and comes installed with 32 MB or 64 MB (non-removable) of
Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Armada M700 Laptop to up to a maximum of
544 MB or 576 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install
Memory, already with 32 MB or 64 MB (non-removable) standard Memory installed. ok Then insert the ram nad replace the keyboards and slide the tabs back in place and you are done just start up the computer and you will get a memory notification press f0 to accept and the system will start ok Hope this helps best regards Mike
Hi there Firstly update the bios, then install the new CPU, go into the bios settings and set them to default, that will auto adjust the computers settings, then you can have a look in the bios again to make sure the voltage is running as preferred.
No, it's not normal. Make sure you have the cpu fan plugged into the proper mb plug. It should not be plugged into a chassis fan plug or your cpu will severely overheat. On the mb there should be either a 3 pin or 4 pin that is marked cpu fan. It will look exactly like the chassis fan pin group but that one will be marked cha fan. If it is plugged into the proper area then you may have a faulty cpu fan. Replace with a new one and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
