COMPAQ ARMADA M300 NOTEBOOK DRIVER
The battery is supposed to output 3 volts. It was actually outputting 0.
I patiently waited for it to arrive in my mailbox. I got the CMOS battery about four days later. I felt silly for cutting the wires of the old one. Apparently the wires go into a connector plug that was hidden just under the bottom of the laptop. So I unplugged what was left of the old battery and plugged the new Compaq Armada m300 Notebook in. I plugged in the AC adapter, pressed the power button, and…experienced the same problem. I was really hoping it would be a simple fix to replace the CMOS battery. In his experience, reseating the hardware components has fixed way more computers than replacing parts. I started with the Compaq Armada m300 Notebook drive.
I had to unscrew a screw on the bottom of the laptop, pull up on this bevel thing, and pull out the hard drive.

I took it out, waited a minute, and plugged it back in. Upon trying to boot, I still got the Compaq splash screen freeze. Next, I tried the modem card on the bottom of the laptop: I unscrewed those two screws in the picture and unplugged a ribbon cable connected to the modem card. I waited a few minutes and plugged it Compaq Armada m300 Notebook in.
This time when I booted the laptop it got past the splash screen. It turns out there was more than one thing wrong with this laptop. The modem card was definitely a problem.
Apparently the laptop was trying to boot to the modem. First of all, my goal in fixing this laptop was to install a distribution of Linux on it and use it for basic word processing and internet usage at Penn, so I could keep my brand new Gatway laptop in my dorm room and take this Compaq laptop Compaq Armada m300 Notebook class to take notes. Keep that in mind. The BIOS settings looked all right.
I reset them to the default Compaq Armada m300 Notebook just to be safe. I saved changes and exited the setup to try to boot into Windows It continued to automatically restart when I tried again. So I used the docking station that goes with this laptop which also magically still worked to boot to a Windows 98 floppy disk. I love Windows 98 floppy disks.
They allow you to format a hard drive very quickly. I ended up going with Xubuntu as my Linux distribution because it supposedly runs better on older machines.

The Armada's magnesium alloy case is sturdy, a blessing for frequent travelers who are hard on portable devices. We found the keyboard comfortable to use and appreciated that the touch pad is centered with the keyboard home keys unlike the physically similar Dell and Gateway models. The expansion unit adds 0. Because the notebook overlaps the expansion unit in the front in a manner that isn't immediately obvious, we had to fuss with it for a bit, and if the battery isn't folded all the Compaq Armada m300 Notebook down, the rear of the notebook won't attach.
