Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
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
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
