Compaq Armada M700 - failure to boot from CD

\015 Started giving blue screen stating that there were hardware problems. Formatted HD and when trying to reinstall W2K it gives the following message " non-system disc or disc error, replace and strike any key when ready". I went into BIOS (using F10) and tried various combinations of boot sequence. Non of these worked. Could you possibly suggest anything else?\015

Hello Blessie,
\015\012This is Romeet,i shall try and help you with this problem. Before formatting for a new installation of w2k, did you delete your partitions and create a new partition or did you just overwrite the old installation partition?Besides i hope you did a backup of your data before any of above processes in the event you might need it later on? Please let me know about the partitioning and i shall try and help further accordingly as most likely it looks like a Disk Partitioning Misconfiguration / Problem

Startup Problem My Compaq Armada 1750. When it starts up it gets past the compaq screen, then it goes blank, and will not boot from cd, floppy disk, or hard drive. i cant access the F10 Setup menu. i think its a no go. i've seen problems like this before but never quite this bad. how it started: it is running Win XP. i started it up and was using it normal (like i'd always use it) and it froze so i tried rebooting it and that's when the problem occured.
