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.

Can't get the set-up screen to come up with F10 or anything else!


There are many solutions for your problem. The one I know is to download the soft pack from the section "Software - System Management " that let you create a bootable floppy setup.
It is common for Armadas get the hidden partition with diagnostics and setup erased in formatting tasks.
Well then, download the "Computer Setup for portables" in that section. Before that you need to know the code of your laptop, that comes underneath it.
For example:
Compaq Armada 1700 Notebook PC 6233/S/3200/D/M/1
then
Microsoft Windows 98
then
Computer Setup for Portables
download sp and extract files, and use Make Disk.

If you use XP, try download version Win98 / Win2k.

Good luck.

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.

Cmos bios setup utility


Hi, On some Compaq models, entry to CMOS/BIOS setup requires pressing F10 as soon as the cursor (white box) appears in the upper right hand corner of the screen (The cursor is displayed on the screen for about two seconds. If you do not press F10 during this time, you must restart the computer and try again.); Alternately on some other models, it is at boot when you see the "Compaq" log in big letters. hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
