There is no simple "factory restore" option on older PCs, you will need the operating CD or disks and the relevant drivers. It is unlikely you will be able to get any of the original compaq software.

Password removal on compaq armada 1700 laptop


The easiest way to remove it is with a loop back.

You can get one from here.

Just make sure you confirm with the seller that it's compatible with your model. There are other ways but the amount of time it takes...it's just smarter getting rid of it this way.

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.
