Having problems with your Compaq Armada E500 Notebook ?
I would like to find the location of my CMOS battery on my laptop to replace the battery. Can anyone please advise me where and how to replace the battery.
If it's the red acer 3200 then the motherboard needs to be removed from it's base plastic to get at it I'm afraid.

I have a friend with a Compaq Evo N60c laptop. He has asked me to see if i can get it working as there seems to be no life in it. It's plugged in but the battery has been fully discharged and even plugged in it takes NO power and is totally lifeless?? I have checked all the conections and all seems to be ok and there is power from the mains lead. (though not sure if there is enough power i'll have that checked today) Can anyone help move us on a little further with this or is this a common

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
