  1. I have a Compaq Armada M700.
    Went on vacation. When I arrived back home, it was dead. I did not bring it
    with me.

    Symptoms: The battery LED (amber) in front will blink 8 times with a few
    seconds pause between each cycle. The hard drive LED over the keyboard will
    glow very dim. It will not respond to any power buttons etc. Behavior is the
    same with battery and AC connected, battery only or AC only. I have tried
    two different AC adapters, and the LED indicators on the battery indicates

    Anybody experienced this? It looks a lot like the system board, but the
    computer has only been sitting on my desk, so no impact damage. The Compaq
    service manuals does not mention anything like this symptoms..
