Re: removing laptop from docking station

If you have the ArmadaStation EM:

The issue of removing the notebook is compounded by the fact that the ArmadaStation EM uses a motorized dock/undock mechanism to remove the notebook. When the expansion base has no power, it is unable to eject the notebook with the motor
 To manually remove the notebook, use manual eject lever to push notebook out of ArmadaStation EM. The manual eject level is a small white lever located inside the back cover of the base. To remove the notebook, push the white lever to the left. Slight pulling is required to remove the notebook completely out of the base.

Hope this helps!

My computer COMPAQ ARMADA M300 show this message: PXE-E61, and then Window XP star but after this do nothing.


You should follow the below steps sequentially in order to isolate the cause and solve the issue:
  • Verify all the cable connections of the hard disk. An improper or loose connection is likely to be the reason, in case the hard disk has been recently installed or moved.
  • Check if no other storage device is connected to the computer. If it is, remove it.
  • Enter the BIOS setup when trying to start the computer and see if hard disk has been correctly setup and detected in BIOS. If the hard disk cannot be detected due to any reason, you should consider the next suggestion as it might be physical failure.
  • Replace the hard disk and restore the data, provided a good backup is available. In other circumstances, you should consult a company that provides data recovery services. These companies have efficient tools and staff to perform hard disk recovery and extract valuable data securely.
Wish you luck,

There is a manual for your armada, the battery is inside the hinge, and you put the charger in the hinge..not sure if it on left or right side of it
If the battery is healthy then it will be full charged in a couple of hours from emty to full, if the battery ise´nt that healthy, it can take 10-12 hours of more

Good luck to you

Docking station fror compaq Evo n610c

docking station for my old compaq armada did not "charge seperately" but did supply power to the pc through docking connector and not through the normal ac input, cant say if they have their own power transformers or not, till i go home and take my old docking station apart. Will the computer not power up when plugged in, it normally will run off ac power even when battery is dead or removed.

Not working

Did your problems begin after the docking station was burned out, or did it work for a while afterward? It certainly sounds like your motherboard's power array is damaged. Please write back with more specifics about when the problem began.
