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

Compaq armada 1700-when powering the system the following error appears "Error loading operating ststem"

There is a good possibility that the hard disk drive may be failing, so if you can try running diagnostics and see if you get a failure on the hard drive.
If you can't run diagnostics, then boot to your Windows CD, press R for recovery console, then at the command prompt run the command CHKDSK /R see if you get any errors on files.
If that doesn't resolve, then boot to the windows CD press enter instead of R and repair windows.
If that still fails, then the hard drive is likely bad

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.

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.
