The Compaq Armada M700 laptop has a PATA (or IDE) hard drive verus a SATA hard drive which is the newer standard. This computer's factory hard drive could not have been any larger than 20 GBs. However, one this size is not readily available anymore so you'll have to go larger. Here is the type of hard drive that you need:

Followed directions online of how to reseat the hard drive, put it back together and it still does not recognize the hard drive. Now what?

You can run the built in Dell hard drive diagnostic or trust me that the hard drive is bad. The controller goes first, meaning data recovery is near impossible by conventional methods. If you have alot or just valuble data on it, you can send the bad drive out to the drive maker or a company like Western Digital for recovery. They're fairly reasonable in price compared to other solutions.

Hello, I tripped over the power cord and the Acer Aspire One fell to the floor from the fireplace so about 3 1/2 feet. Now it will not show anything on the screen but green power light does come on and if...

My thoughts is that one if not a couple of the PC boards inside is cracked or broke. More than likely you broke the inverter power board which lights up your display.
May be a time for a new laptop. Would cost more to repair than to buy you an new laptop.
My thoughts is you may find another one on E-bay that has some minor issues or in need of a hard drive and you could take the hard drive out of yours and put it in the new/used one.

When your screen broke...was it due to a fall or shock...

Try and looking out for any grinding or ticking noise

You might want to try and take your hard disk to a local computer shop to send to recovery centres although it could turn out to be a bit expensive...

Well this depends. If he did a restore that involved formatting the hard drive (or a detsructive restore), then no can't help you. If not, he may of just installed Windows over itself, leaving your file system intact. Either way,it's hard to say, because being your computer, I don't know where you ha your files saved to start. But more than likely you will have to start over.

Make preinstalled vista

If not, the guys who sold yhe pc should install it for you, since a part of the computers price is for the OS, or at least they should provide you a recovery DVD.

You can search on youtube on how to fix it but it is not that hard to take apart. I don't think anyone does the sending part though.

Laptop hard drive physical damage

If it's clicking then you may be out of luck. Sending it to a data recovery agency is really costly. You may (???) be able to get some files off the drive if you connect it to someone else's computer as a second drive. I've also heard that putting the drive in the freezer will sometimes let the drive work for a short period of time. But, IMHO the drive is toast.
