    I'm having the same problem with my battery life as well. It is like time I really get involved with what I really need to do that is when my battery life starts going down. I'm also having problem with my power cord which seems to have a shortage in it or something and I really would like to know how to purchase another one along with a extended life battey.

Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you

You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program



Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like

I have a compaq Persario F700. When I plug it in and press the power button, the power button lights up like it is turning on, but the screen remains blank. Then the power button light turns off, and...

I can't solve your problem, but can tell you what I did to my F761us which has same problem as you are, it happened 3 weeks ago(08/2010) after we bought it-- 2 years 4 months the shortest life we ever have over 30 years computer experiences.

I am pretty sure my HD, battery, RAM, fan... are all OK
--the fan is working (you can feel it from vent)
I could see my battery light is on whenever I took it out for a while then put back, and after a whille the light off (should be fully charged).
we bought expansion RAM card, so we have 3, I did test all of them in each ram slot.
I also switch my power suply between HP L2000 and the broken one. I notice the broken one didn't warm up the power adpter-quite cold. but the same power supply plug into L2000 it warmed up as normal. does it mean something ?

we spent around $10 to convert internal HD to external usb HD
and could be accessed by our another HP DV7. (unfortunately we formatted it as C : D: 2 partitions, that L2000 can't accept 2 partitions.)

indeed the touchpad comparing my oldest still working HP L2000 (over 6 years), my F700 was very hot before it broken.

I did diassemblle it and found one shorty hair in FAN, and very very minor dust.

How do i replace the cmos battery in the motherboard on my compaq presario F700? where is the clock battery located?

  1. Place your laptop in such a way that the rear part is exposed.
  2. Unscrew the locks of the covers to remove the covers and eventually expose your laptop's motherboard.
  3. The battery is situated in the motherboard and it looks like a battery of a watch.
  4. Remove the said battery and find a replacement of exactly the same kind and specification like 3.0V or something that is printed in the battery itself.
  5. Then place the new battery and close the covers.

Battery doesn't stay charged

The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.
I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.

Okay my compaq presario f700 keeps turning its self off if its in high performence and its really annoying because when its on power saver it is slow. do you know what is wrong with it ,if so can you get...

The question is a little vague, but if its running under stress and is shutting down, then its likely to be overheating and the unit is protecting itself.

Get a can of compressed air (or a vacuum cleaner, if you dont want to cough up) and clean the heatsink and fan ports.

If its not this, and you mean it keeps going into standby, either switch this off in Windows (Start -- Control Panel -- Power options) or go into your Bios and see if there is an option in their.

You can also usually switch off the 'CPU stepping' and leave it on full speed all the time (battery life will suffer).

Presario f700 drivers

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to and search for the model of your Laptop.
