Having problems with your Compaq Armada M700 Notebook ?

Compaq armada m700 randomly shuts off, charging connection issue?

\015 Hey everyone. i have a compaq armada m700 that we got from my dads work. ive had it for a lil over a year and have been experiencing some problems. first off is the computer shuts off randomly, and does not turn on unless the plug is JUST the right position, or at least thats how it seems. another thing that seems related is if the cord moves a little, sometimes it starts making a buzzing sound, and if not moved back, shuts off soon. basically it seems to be shorting out or something. ive tried a different(but not new) charger and still the same problem. i was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem or would know whats causing it. thanks\015

Answers :

Since you have already tried using a different cable, it sounds like a loose connection, or a failing power supply. In either case, I recommend you take it to a qualified tech to check it out, before something else more expensive gets shorted out by the faulty electrical connection. It could be a simple part swap would get you back in business with a reliable laptop instead of a liability for your precious data.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
