That phone line will only be for actual phone lines.. as it will be a modem.

If the lappy has an ethernet port (slightly larger than a phone port, but looks the same) you could use that with an ethernet cable to a DSL modem. (the modem has the phone wire plugged into it)

Most laptops have an ethernet port, but yours might be a bit too old perhaps? If that's the case, you can buy either a USB to ethernet adapter (but you might not have that either) or a PCMCIA ethernet card. The latter will definitely work for you, and can be bought second hand VERY cheaply... if not for nothing.

I really hope it has something a bit newer than '95 though... otherwise just getting the internet to work could be a problem. Good luck!

I cant login in to my Compaq Armada 1700


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Login Password?

Which Operating System?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

I recently bought a fixer-upper Compaq Armada 1700 and was wondering a few things. 1) What is the maximum hard drive space that this model will support? 2) What is your opinion on using Ubuntu on this...


This would use a EIDE disk which generally tops out around 160GB. It is a disk problem not a computer problem. Unbuntu would work a lot better than any Windows OS. I'd go for it.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

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.

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
