Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Connection cable on system board

I just took my Compaq Armada M700 all apart to replace the fan/heat sync. Now I get to put it back together, which so far has been easy. Reverse the order. You know when you take something apart and after you put it back together and you have a handful of screws left? But everything still works okie dokie? Well. I got the RAM back in, etcetc and all of a sudden I see this connector cable (the longest one on the mobo and I can find NOWHERE to connect it! The one end connects just above the PC card assembly (there is no PC card in this laptop). NO clue where the other end goes, there isn't a place for it!!

I can take apart and put back together any desktop system, with my eyes closed. Well, maybe in my sleep. The closest I have come to taking my laptop apart was replacing the keyboard. Soooooo....HELP!! Where does this connector go?

(Anyone know about Toshiba Satellites?) That would be for another day. I bought one that is a very nice looking system, but it won't power on.

Thank you!!

    Okay, after another two hours of looking for what this wire is, I found it for sale on eBay. Go figure. (I am a research fool) It is called an Internal cable, 2-wire, 2-pin connector. It is approx 10 1/2 in. long.



    It connects to the external microphone jack, if your system is so equipped. Mine isn't. So it was just there, tucked in out of sight until I saw it! I love that Compaq so I was thrilled to find that out!!



    Thank you for answering anyhow. At least I know if I have a problem, it will be answered soon. When I dig into the Toshiba, I will NEED help!

Compaq armada m700 randomly shuts off, charging connection issue?


Since you have already tried using a different cable, it sounds like a loose connection, or a failing power supply. In either case, I recommend you take it to a qualified tech to check it out, before something else more expensive gets shorted out by the faulty electrical connection. It could be a simple part swap would get you back in business with a reliable laptop instead of a liability for your precious data.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I have a Compaq armada m700 and i dont know the power up password i put it in without realizing it


I'm copying someone else's answer; I can't vouch for it.
emove the main battery and mains power supply, hit the power switch to drain any retained charge. then remove the cmos battery and short out the contacts. the cmos battery is on the right under the panel at the top of the keyboard, which can be popped out by gently levering it up at the edges. the key board can then be folded clear, watch for the ribbon cable under it that connects to the motherboard.

Compaq Armada m700 battery


docboy, the battery on the M700 is locked in. Unlock it and pull UP on it. To put it back in you have to seat the end nearest the side of your laptop then push down gently on the end toward the middle. It will lock in and there ya go!! Hope this helps!
