You want to install memory on a 266 MHz PII?

A standard-configuration Armada 1700 has 32 MB of memory, and is expandable up to 160 MB.

Personally I don't recommend installing memory on this computer (I'd just buy a new one considering this one is pretty old), but if you still want to install memory complete the following steps:

  1. Remove the battery, floppy and disconnect the power supply
  2. Underneath the computer, there are several screws with arrows pointing to them. Remove these.
  3. There is one more screw in the center of the bottom shell. Remove this.
  4. Remove the laptop's bottom shell.
  5. Turn the laptop over and remove the keyboard.
  6. The memory is located on the left-hand portion of the laptop and is enclosed in a memory bay. Snap out the memory and install up to 160 MB SDRAM, assuming you can get your hands on it in the first place.
When finished, replace the keyboard and bottom shells, as well as the screws that you removed. Congratulations!

Hi

If it is missing the operating system then you are missing windows i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista etc etc


You will need to purchase a CD from any reputable PC shop or online, and then install onto your PC

Armada 1700 upgrade


hello
No you cant upgrade your processor.
also to change processor is very complicated in a old compaq.
and if you should manage to find a faster processor to your old compaq it not gonna make your laptop faster. the mother board and ram memory are still to old.

Compaq armada 1700 only starts on safe mode


If this is your notebook - Compaq Armada 1700 (316320-056) PC Notebook. The system memory only came with 32MB's of memory. Your not telling me enough. Have you recently upgraded your operating system? If I have this wrong please post which Compaq you have from the list I'm providing from this link:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96221&taskId=135
If you are trying to run a XP version your memory will need to be increased to at least 512MB. You still have the Compaq's splash screen loading when you turn on your notebook which blocks you from seeing the amount of memory installed in your notebook. So when you start your notebook press the F12 key on your keyboard. You need to enter the bios. If F12 does not get you there than try F10 or F1 key. At startup. Repeat hitting the key every two seconds till the Bios screen loads. Look for the amount of memory installed. At the bottom of the bios screen is instructions on how to navagate while in the bios. You'll need to post back with what you found If I'm to help further.

Dvd instalation


That's the limiting factor with laptops. You're bound to what the manufacturer provides or compatible 3rd party components. Different interface means not compatible (internally). You can try buying a Compaq DVD/RW for the Armanda, or buying an external DVD/RW that meets your needs.

Again, there's not too much freedom with parts when it comes to laptops.
