Hi there Does anyone know wether i can place 2 x 256MB PC 133MHz Ram on a Compaq M700? I am not sure if a Compaq M700 will accept 133MHz Ram instead of 100MHz standard and i don't want to Buy the wrong Ram. Any Help would be appreciated.

You may struggle to find 100MHZ ram, but 133MHZ should be backward compatable, if you go to, it should give you the alternatives you can fit

I have a compact armada when booting up do i hit f10 to system restore it a m700

Hi - To do a system restore you need the QuickRestore disc package that was provided with the machine. The restore would only be useful if you still had the factory installed operating system on your laptop.

I did a look around the HP/Compaq support site and didn't see any place to order the discs but I only spent a few minutes there so you might want to contact them. The support page for your PC is located HERE. It's an older machine and there's a strong possibility you can no longer get the discs.

Your best option would be to upgrade your machine to Windows XP (or reinstall it if that's what you had). I only suggest that version of Windows if you have 512 MB of RAM (the system probably came with 256 MB of RAM.

Good Luck and Thanks for visiting Fix Ya.

Does not matter, the laptop runs at the 100 mhz speed so the 133 mhz memory will simply run at the slower speed.

Make sure you have the memory installed correctly. Those beep codes identify it as bad memory. Try the old RAM.
Good luck with this.

Need to know what type of printer to buy for my compaq M700 laptop

Need to know what printer to buy for older compaq armada M700 lap

Yes you can upgrade the memory but it is a pain. Most modern systems have a little panel on the bottom you can remove to add more memory but to add memory to a M700 you have to remove the keyboard. It will take 2 sticks of 256Mb PC-100 SODIMM memory.

Explanation of "Virtual Memory". RAM is what your processor uses to do it's "thinking". The hard drive is like a filing cabinet, it is for permanent storage. Virtual memory is nothing more than a file on the hard drive. When your computer does not have enough RAM, it writes information to this file and then reads it back when it needs to. This drastically slows down you computer and can cause your hard drive to fail prematurely because it is work harder than it would have to if you have enough RAM.

The M700 has USB ports so any new printer should work as long as it has drivers for your operating system. If you have Windows XP, almost all printers will have drivers for that. If you have a different version of Windows, just as the printer salesperson if it has drivers for your operating system.
As to what type to buy - it depends on what you want to do. Inkjets are cheap to buy but the ink is expensive.
Black and White laser printers are a bit more expensive to buy but the per page cost is a lot lower to print.
If you want to print colour (photographs) go with the inkjet. If you are using this for work or school and need to print a lot of reports, go for the laser.
Note: Don't forget to buy a USB cable, it doesn't come with the printer.

Compaq M700 Ram Upgrade the second

i can find no spec on this but,if your notebook can take upt 576MB of memory, i would expect 2 x 256MB to be the max, as installing 1 x 512MB would be doubling the capacity allowed by one module slot.
