When you power your system up do you get a message saying battery charge failure or some other disappointing driver message? Try powering down, removing the battery, and look for a little button on the underneath of the battery. You should be able to press this button and a series of lights will or won't appear. If they light up it means the battery is truly charged. If not there is something wrong with the connection. Try wiping the surface off and replacing the battery. Also make sure the pin that you place into the laptop to charge the battery is free of dust, etc.

I have a Compaq M700 lap top. power failure , Won't boot up ?


You need to find out if the power supply was damaged, it would have been the first to take a hit, remove the main battery to see if it will boot because a bad one will load the system down in some cases. One trick that might work, unplug power supply from laptop and remove main battery, now press and hold power for 2 minutes to drain off residual voltage and reset the processor, finally install everything back and power up.

Compaq Armada 110 works only, when AC adapter (PSU) is connected. I changed a new battery (refurbished) and now fully charged, but when unplug AC cable power will be lost. It was same behaviour with the...


OK, check the connection IN the laptop make sure they are actually making contact and are actually working. Now IF that is all in order, then I suspect, that your Battery Charger/Internal Power Supply, has faulted, the External and Internal supplies are separate, with exception for tap off to battery charger.
I have had this many times in my shop, you can most likely buy the Power supply sub board assembly and replace it.
Below is a service manual that will show you what to do and the part numbers. Most likely Ebay will be your best bet, or go straight to Compaq or Compaq dealer for the spare parts, or use the 'net.

Computer worked fine last time i used it about 2 months ago, now it will not power up, any suggestions? compaq armada e500


Sounds like the you might need to replace the battery. Also check the power supply reconnect make sure connection are tight etc... its a long shot but make sure wall outlet is also active as well! Sometime it takes 20- 30 mins for an old battery to begin to recharge:)

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.

Always start with the simplest solution first so start by cleaning all the contacts, AC adapter laptop plug, laptop socket, laptop battery contacts and battery contacts. How have you confirmed power output from the AC adapter? have you used a voltmeter to ensure you are getting power at the laptop end? Have you used a voltmeter to test the battery? Assuming you have tried all this don't forget that almost any component can interrupt power on some laptops, however you're 2 main culprits with this kind of problem are usually power controller (voltage regulator) and in some cases, on a laptop of this vintage, the charge controller built in to the battery. Try it with a different battery if you have one.

Wont recognise battery


Those may have 1 or 2 different problems. Cold Solder joint on Mobo. Bad DC Power Jack. 1: if it is the Cold Solder, you can reflow the solder and be done with it. 2: if it is the DC power jack, It should be replaced. For simplicity lets call them DC(A) and DC(B) There are 3 connections to it. Gnd, DC (A), and DC (B). When the powersupply is plugged in, contacts (A) touch to send +DC to the laptop. (B) is open. When the laptop is using battery power, contacts (B) touch to send power from the battery through the system. Over a period of time (inserting and removing the DC Power Cord), the contacts become fatigued, or oxidized and the DC(B) never closes - so it won't work from DC Battery. RATE ME - if it helps
