Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
How do we get the battery off?????????????$#^%#^%#&
The battery has a release button on the bottom of the machine. Some models have a locking button separate from the release, so be sure that the locking button is unlocked, if yours has one. If this is all correct and the battery still won't budge, then most likely the battery has swelled and is stuck. Most of the time when a battery gets stuck due to swelling, it only slightly stuck, just enough not to be able to pull it by hand. Take a flathead screwdriver and pry up on it lightly while depressing/sliding the release. It should pry out with minimal pressure, if it seems that you're applying too much pressure, then you may want to have a tech remove it. It may be that the release mechanism has malfunctioned, and forcing it will break something.
