Does it have a locking mechanism? The Latch/spring may be broken or jammed, push the latch over and hold use a tool, old credit card, to wedge at the crack where the battery meets the laptop, gently pry it open, while holding the latch open. OR remove the laptop's bottom cover. If you supply the Model of the Compag , I may can assist you further.

Need to remove battery, dont know how compaq presario v 3000

Hello sexychispa. To remove the battery of your Compaq Presario v3000, start by turning the laptop over so that the bottom side is viewable. Look for a rounded slot in the bottom that has a sliding tab within. This is the battery release latch. Using your finger, slide the latch and hold to release the battery. With your free hand, assist the battery out of its compartment and allow the release latch to slide back into place.
For more information on the process, be sure to view this link to HP's guide to removing batteries from Compaq laptops.
Hope this helped!

Need to change battery
This is a link to the owner's manual. It shows pictures of the laptop and where the battery is located. Probably easy to find a replacement battery on or elsewhere. The battery should have a number on it for reordering or you can find one at

On a compaq presario v2000, latch switch that releases battery is stuck. Won't open and release battery. Afraid to push to hard and break it off.

Sounds like you will have to take it all apart & remove the Motherboard to get where the spring is & the lever to make sure it not busted or just jammed.

You need to disconnect the laptop battery from the computer and also the ac adapter so there is no power.

Then you will need to unscrew the generally 2 screws on the memory cover to get to the ram. I will have to get a service manual for your unit and confirm how its done.

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.
