Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
Try this remove the main battery and mains power supply, hit the power switch to drain any retained charge. then remove the cmos battery. The cmos battery is on the right under the
panel at the top of the keyboard, which can be popped out by gently
levering it up at the edges. the key board can then be folded clear,
watch for the ribbon cable under it that connects to the motherboard.no other way i know of. You might want to check this location first get to the cmos battery via the
removable panel on the bottom right front of the case (other side from
the battery). first remove the main battery. next remove the panel,
under it you will see a modem card, remove the modem card and you
should see the cmos battery to the right side its loke a big watch
battery. there will be a connector on the wires going to the battery.
remove this to disconnect it. now just push the start button with the
machine un plugged, just to discharge any residual power. wait a couple
of minutes then reconnect the cmos battery then the modem card, then
the main battery. plug it in and start it up. the screen will come up
with something like "cmos bad checksum, defaults loaded" do not worry
this is normal. if it doesn't start normally, switch it off by holding
the on button down until it goes off then restart. it should be fine
after that, password gone. you can then get into your bios and set it up to your liking. I recommend not putting in a password. Let me know if this works for you.
