Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
M700 worked fine on battery, until after a time of not using it on battery, it just would not boot on just the battery.
I have checked the battery and all the indicators go on. The battery program in Windows (XP) says that the charge is at 100%.
With the battery in, and A/C unplugged, it will not boot. With battery in and A/C connected, it boots and works fine. If I disconnect A/C at this point, the computer dies.
This could still be a bad battery, even though the indicators and the machine are telling you that it's charging. Laptop batteries are a bit more complicated than regular batteries, they have built in fail safes in order to keep from damaging the machine if the battery malfunctions. If a fail safe has engaged due to a malfunction this could cause the problem. Start by trying a new battery. If a new battery doesn't cure it, then the problem may lie with the power management system on the motherboard.
