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?

Power cord


this model has a 110v or 220v power supply built into it.
Make Sure it the matching required voltage on its case if you plug 220v power point into a 110v rated power supply inside the laptop it will let out lots of smoke and stop working !

The part number is 255135-AA1

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.

My comp doesnot boot

No boot


Sounds like the motherboard is getting power to the lights but not to the rest of the computer. try to drain all the power out of the laptop by unplugging it and holding the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and try again if this does not fix it your motherboard is probably shot and would need replaced.

Does not power up


its alright..usually, the total charging time of Laptops is about an hour or two. What is unique in laptops is becuase it has automatic cut-off charging feature that your laptop has the ability to turn off the charger when its already battery full no matter how many hours you've using it.

just enjoy what your doing.ok? =)

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
