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.

If you have a look at where the charger sits in the docking station (and therefore where this 'plug end' connects to the machine) you will see that there is a small catch that keeps it in place.
You would need to push this catch in to release the plug and you will then be able to remove it from the docking station.
It can be quite stiff and the gap it is located in can be quite small for some fingers - very gently using a flat head screwdriver would aid you in this.

problems that occur because of difficulties in post test during boot to
identify your hdd your hdd or the possibility of trouble. try to troubleshoot by using data Kable hdd and a 100% functional.
just try with fixing the hard drive connection properly and in bios also check how much capacity motherboard can support .according to your specification it will not support the higher capacity hard disk .make sure you installing the new hardidsk as same capacity of your older hard drive.
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 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.
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.
