Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery fully charged, or is it.

I had a look around and most people are having problems with thier laptops just not booting up at all, well, not me, thats on the 1ghz m700 which i soon gave up on. my problem at the moment is on my 700mhz m700 which is refusing to give me anything from the battery. according to my pc i have a fully charged battery and according to a piece of software i use called mobmeter my battery has no wear. yet my pc wont give me a light of any sort without having the mains connected, and then if i unplug the mains during use it instantly blacks out. any ideas? thanks adam

    excellent thanks for the answer. i feared as much just didnt want it to be right. my charger is a compaq charger. not entirely sure if it came with the laptop or not but deffinatly compaq. battery looks fine, the only reason i thought it might not be the battery is because everything seemed to check out.

    Do you have a guide on how to build your own battery? it just so happens im a sound technician so pretty dab handed with a soldering iron.

    Thanks again
    Adam

Good Day Blunty, It's one of two things, the more likely of the two is that that battery is totaly shot, laptop battery's are usually only good for 1.5 years then loose there ability to retain a charge. It sounds like that one's just done. Unfortunatly that those batterys cost more than there worth, 100 bucks or more. The second possibility is the power cord, is that the original power cord for that? Or was on that was bought aftermaket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge. Also remove the battery and check for corrison. You can build your own battery fot a a laptop if got a few hours time, and are good with a soldering gun. You get the litium ion cells you need for about 40 bucks. Good Luck L8R

Charging battery compaq presario c700


If you can reach inside the computer and rub the battery contacts gently to remove the corrosion ,which is invisible , this will help greatly. Sometimes even a new battery will suffer the same. Clean the battery contacts also turn off the laptop and charge it fully do this on a regular basis. Say once every 2 months

What will happen if the battery in your laptop is not fully charging


That would mean your battery is dying and you need to go buy a new battery for your laptop. You can buy new batterys for around $40
Find a store that sells laptop parts or go online look on amazon or next tag also when you get your new battery plugin your laptop charge your new battery so it has a full charge.Then when it is done charging unplug it and use the battery until it dies, then plug it in again to recharge it never leave it plugged in if it is fully charged for long periods.if you are using your laptop at home you can pull out the battery and use it when its plugged into the wall this will help to extend your battery life just make sure you have a fully charged battery before leaving your house. always unplug your your laptop when its is fully charged this will also extend your battery life for along time

Full charge the battery first so that it can contain enough power to boot your laptop. Because it is a new battery it should fully charged for the first use.

Acer Aspire 1640 power problem


Will the unit work without the battery? The new Lithium Ion batteries can be overcharged and then cause all kinds of strange problems. Take the battery to a reputable electronics shop or Batteries Plus and have them run a voltage and current test. The current test being the most revealing. If either of these is higher than the level printed on the battery, dispose of it. Also, check ACER's web site for battery problems. All the computer manufacturers have had battery problems.

Good Luck

Its a common problem of this phone. What you need to do is:

1. Charge the battery fully. It may be not charged while in phone. So take out the battery and charge it any other way. Insert fully charged battery and check. You can also check with other fully charged battery for the same model.

2. If not work, you need to repair erom. For this better go to repair shop.

Booting issues...i guess


you are in shutdown with battery. try it without battery to eliminate one issue. Then, you may need to recharge battery fully, for around 12 hours.

got backup for that Acer?

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
