The hard drive was damaged. Inside the drive, the tiny moving head took the hit. They really are not designed to take shocks like that. Many laptop mfgrs offer "industrial" duty laptops that have on-board shock absorption suspension for hard drives.

The screem has broken and it can not power on

well you need to get a new LCD panel for your Armada M700. You could get something like this from eBay:

(hurry....less than 8 hours left)

You could do this yourself if you are technically inclined.

Compaq armada m700 wont power up all the way

Sounds like you may have a problem with the internal power supply box? I am not sure but that may be at least something for you to have checked out. If the fan is not spinning this is usually a sign this may be what the problem is. GOOD LUCK!

Battery for Compac Armada M700

Hello Felcen:

It could be just a coincidence...but lets try a few things...

Remove the battery and unplug from the wall. Hold the power button on...and then plug back into power...after 8 seconds release the power button. Once your computer boots to desktop...shut down...and replace the battery.

Changing the harddrive should have anything to do with teh battery...

See if your battery starts charging after this trick.

Let me know and good luck my friend.

Compaq armada M700 power on problem

HMMMMMMMMMMM, SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE NEEDS A INVERTER! YOU CAN BUY ONE OF THESE ONLINE, BUT UNLESS YOU KNOW HOW TO PUT ONE IN DON'T DO IT.
CHECK TO SEE IF THE DISPLAY WORKS BY PLUGGING A VGA CORD FROM YOUR NOTEBOOK TO YOUR MONITOR IF YOUR MONITOR SHOWS WHAT YOUR NOTEBOOK IS DISPLAYING, THEN IT'S YOUR INVERTER.

Compaq Armada M700

Always start with the simplest solution first so start by cleaning all the contacts, AC adapter laptop plug, laptop socket, laptop battery contacts and battery contacts. How have you confirmed power output from the AC adapter? have you used a voltmeter to ensure you are getting power at the laptop end? Have you used a voltmeter to test the battery? Assuming you have tried all this don't forget that almost any component can interrupt power on some laptops, however you're 2 main culprits with this kind of problem are usually power controller (voltage regulator) and in some cases, on a laptop of this vintage, the charge controller built in to the battery. Try it with a different battery if you have one.
