Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

3 Answers

Trouble booting up laptop

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]

Possible that the battery is not holding charge. You might want to get a new battery, this happens from time to time with these models

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

The screem has broken and it can not power on

well you need to get a new LCD panel for your Armada M700. You could get something like this from eBay:

You could do this yourself if you are technically inclined.

Battery for Compac Armada M700

Hello Felcen:

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.

Let me know and good luck my friend.
