Having problems with your Compaq Armada M700 Notebook ?

I have a compaq armada but dont know the power on password how can i fix


Answers :

Try this remove the main battery and mains power supply, hit the power switch to drain any retained charge. then remove the cmos battery. The cmos battery is on the right under the\015\012panel at the top of the keyboard, which can be popped out by gently\015\012levering it up at the edges. the key board can then be folded clear,\015\012watch for the ribbon cable under it that connects to the motherboard.no other way i know of. You might want to check this location first get to the cmos battery via the\015\012removable panel on the bottom right front of the case (other side from\015\012the battery). first remove the main battery. next remove the panel,\015\012under it you will see a modem card, remove the modem card and you\015\012should see the cmos battery to the right side its loke a big watch\015\012battery. there will be a connector on the wires going to the battery.\015\012remove this to disconnect it. now just push the start button with the\015\012machine un plugged, just to discharge any residual power. wait a couple\015\012of minutes then reconnect the cmos battery then the modem card, then\015\012the main battery. plug it in and start it up. the screen will come up\015\012with something like "cmos bad checksum, defaults loaded" do not worry\015\012this is normal. if it doesn't start normally, switch it off by holding\015\012the on button down until it goes off then restart. it should be fine\015\012after that, password gone. you can then get into your bios and set it up to your liking. I recommend not putting in a password. Let me know if this works for you.
