Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

Open Question

Compaq M700 laptop.

Compaq Armada M700 laptop.
Fails to power up. When battery removed, still fails to power up but battery LED gives a series of 8 flashes repeatedly. That is the only sign of life. I have another M700, so I know the power supply is good. Reason for removing battery is that the working M700 wouldn't power up until battery pack removed. Duff battery pack, on that one, I guess.

SOURCE: Battery for Compac Armada M700

Hello Felcen:

It could be just a coincidence...but lets try a few things...

Remove the battery and unplug from the wall. Hold the power button on...and then plug back into power...after 8 seconds release the power button. Once your computer boots to desktop...shut down...and replace the battery.

Changing the harddrive should have anything to do with teh battery...

See if your battery starts charging after this trick.

Let me know and good luck my friend.

SOURCE: My Compac Armada M700 does not power up.

Had the same problem with My Compaq M700 No Boot Or Post. Battery Light Flashes 8 Times, Have to Wait 24 to 48 hrs sometimes longer to get Laptop to Start. Tryed the DC Converter Board Change No Difference same Problem. Noticed When Laptop Did Start Clock Time Was always a Little Off 2-4 Hours sometimes more. So Figure CMOS Problem With Time Issues. Read About Battery Memory Transitor Voltage spike Detection Issues Corrected With Newer Bios Flash at HP Supports. So I Flashed Bios With Latest 686h. During the First Boot After Reflash Battery LED Did flash No Start, After pushing the power button again it Started. And has Every since.So Far Laptop Now Boots Everytime and CMOS Checksum Seems To Keep Time Correct In Windows. The Bios Flash Corrects a Voltage Spike Detecting Transistor In The Charging Circuit. During First Start after flash Bios will run system test on the charging system and Correct CMOS. Worked for Me Hope this Helps a Few.

SOURCE: Fujitsu Drive installation on Armada M700 Laptop

I would stay away from fujitsu hard drives. They are complete trash. I would stick with either Seagate Western Digital or IBM. I have the hitachi that came with the machine and although it is slow it still works after over 10 years. I would like to know more about your situation if you need help installing it tell me what it is doing.

Yellow led blink 8 times compaq m700


Hi,

I'm not understanding what the problem is. If the battery is dead, and you remove it, how do you expect it to recharge? Why would you remove it? So, you take it out and nothing happens.So? What were you expecting to happen?

Before you do anything more, read the documentation that came with your laptop to learn how to care for your battery. The amber light usually blinks with the battery is running low. When you plug in the A/C adapter, the light usually becomes steady to indicate the battery is charging. At tleast until you remove it.

Hope this helps. Please rate this repsonse

The screem has broken and it can not power on


well you need to get a new LCD panel for your Armada M700. You could get something like this from eBay:

(hurry....less than 8 hours left)

You could do this yourself if you are technically inclined.
