I have a Compaq Armada M700. Up until recently it worked perfectly, however recently it is not accepting power. If i fiddle with the adapter then it might accept power but for the most part i can't get it to turn on and stay on. Usually it will turn on and then turn itself off as if from lack of power. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong with it considering that if i fiddle with the adapter it will accept power. please help.
I do not think the battery is the problem. Do you leave the powerr adapter plugged in all the time? You should. Since you can make it work by moving the adapter plug, I suspect there is a lose connection in that area of the laptop or the adapter. As suggested above, try a different adapter first. You may email me for more information. [email protected]
Goto a radioshack and ask if they can give you a replacement AC adapter for the computer. Bring the computer with you so that they can match it up. If the computer charges and works with the new adapter, it was the plug/adapter that you were using. If it still does not turn on, it may be a problem with the socket for the power adapter and you will need to have a certified repair technician take a look at it

this may be because the battery is dead so you may have to keep the charger attaached to the laptop for power. if this does not work then this means that the battery is no longer good so u will need to replace it.
It could be just a coincidence...but lets try a few things...
Remove the battery and unplug from the wall. Hold the power button on...and then plug back into power...after 8 seconds release the power button. Once your computer boots to desktop...shut down...and replace the battery.
Changing the harddrive should have anything to do with teh battery...
See if your battery starts charging after this trick.
