Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
SOURCE: battery not charging
I would advise you to try this:
1......Make sure the unit is completely off.
2...........Hold down the "FN" key and turn the unit on with the main sliding Power switch and immediately start to tap the "F11" key.
3.............The unit will look likes it's shutting down. Let it do this three times.
This resets the CMOS. On first boot, the POST will check the RAM and inform you that changes have been made. Accept the changes.
This also resets all of the information in the BIOS to the defaults. If you have made changes (security passwords, asset numbers,etc.) enter the BIOS first and record all these settings so you can restore them afterwards.

The problem with your system is that the Battery you are using is Faulty is either the current voltage spoilt it or may be is an old age battery
What you will have to do is to get another Battery that you will first of all Charge it well before usage ok. nice

This error is commonly seen in Compaq laptops. Take out the battery,start the laptop with the adapter only and see if that error message pops up again and if not then it might be your battery.Usually battery life is 3yrs. Put the battery back again and see if the message pops up again. Try the battery on a different laptop. It could be the Voltage Converter Board...see service manual for the same or call Compaq service centre.
