Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
Hi, where is the CMOS battery located?
I replaced small battery under the modem, but problem is not solved.
What is happend? Always after shutting down and turning on, evrything appears, like first turn on. Does not remember any set ups.
So I replaced small lithium 3volt battery under modem. But the problem was not solved. Now I think, mait be this was not the CMOS battery.Is this the CMOS battery?
Disconnect the power cable from the computer and remove the battery pack from the computer.
Close the screen and turn the computer upside-down. Locate the modem/combo card compartment on the right side of the computer (adjacent to the modem/telephone and network cable ports).

Most people will notice the cmos batter is flat when they receive an error during post just after turning the pc on. This is a warning tell you the settings were lost, replacing the battery will not put them back. After replacing the battery go into bios by pressing delete/f2/f10 as instructed by your bios, choose the 'load defaults' option, then set the time and day, then 'save and exit'

You will find the CMOS battrey under the modem. Turn laptop up side down, it is in left, lower corner. Battrey you can buy in any electrinic shop, but dont go by laptop name, go by battrey number. It cost 5.00$
Good luck, Marian.

The CMOC battery is rechargeable, it will take time to reach full charge. It is being charged while the laptop is under charge, but may take a few hours. However, if the charging circuit is gone there is a whole other problem, a replacement of that is a bit harder. Check the main battery as well, by going into the Display Properties, screen saver and hit the power button. Run the calibration on the main battery to see how well it does. In most cases when one goes down the other is not far behind.
