    ok, sure.
    this is only a good idea if your original batt is older than 3 years (thats how long they last), also its only a good idea to open up a laptop if you know what your looking at, they are very hard to put back together again unless you have the correct tools.

    however i am willing to give you a few pointers ; )

    to undo the screws holding the upper and lower parts together use a jewel screw driver or torx set. realize that some screws are under labels as a warranty security, just feel for the holes carefully with your fingers. also with down any information serial etc... before breaking through labels/stickers.

    now carefully and slowly open up the laptop and never use any force! their are always hidden screws unless you are familiar with the computer!

    now carefully unplug the top part with the bottom via the two or three clips (cant remember) and volla your laptop is now in two pieces.

    here is a segment or a manual that will be handy:

    The CMOS battery is a small silver cell battery held in a grey plastic
    clip at the top left of the case. The part number is 117099/001. This is identical to the
    one for the Compaq Aero, which leads one to wonder just how old some of these batteries

    The new battery should not be handled. I used a piece of paper to hold it. The problem with changing these, is that the spring-clip that holds them
    in seems to be fragile. The battery would seem to be intended to be removed horizontally,
    with two arms of the plastic holder springing out. In fact mine had become brittle and
    just snapped. I know of another user who had exactly the same problem.

    So, how did I fit my battery? There are two pins underneath, which push
    the battery up, and a metal clip which pushes it horizontally. The battery needs to be
    snug against both of these, or it will not function. The battery should be mounted with
    the side with the (+) on upwards.

    • I bought some electric insulating tape from Tandy.

    • I placed the battery in the holder, and stuck it down to the motherboard
      with a small piece of tape. This took care of the upward push.

    • Then I got a bin-tie. These come with rolls of plastic bags, and consist
      of a metal strip encased in plastic, which can be bent and twisted to close bags. I took
      one, made a loop the size of the holder, and twisted it shut. Then I looped it around the
      battery and pulled it into the horizontal clip. This took care of the sideways push. The
      battery was never going to untwist the tie, after all!

    • Finally I taped over the whole arrangement, to ensure that the tie could
      not fall off while the laptop was being moved.

    I then applied mains power (don't use the laptop battery while doing
    config stuff, in case it fails part way through), and it all worked!

    enuff info?

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.

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.

Compaq Armada e500 refuses to start!

An immediate boot fail normally either indicates a flat cmos battery or a faulty processor. My advice is to take to a qualified repair shop, as notebook are not as easy to work with as desktops and finding the cmos battery alone can be a headache.
