I have a Compaq Armada M700.\nWent on vacation. When I arrived back home, it was dead. I did not bring it\nwith me.\n\nSymptoms: The battery LED (amber) in front will blink 8 times with a few\nseconds pause between each cycle. The hard drive LED over the keyboard will\nglow very dim. It will not respond to any power buttons etc. Behavior is the\nsame with battery and AC connected, battery only or AC only. I have tried\ntwo different AC adapters, and the LED indicators on the battery indicates\nfull.\n\nAnybody experienced this? It looks a lot like the system board, but the\ncomputer has only been sitting on my desk, so no impact damage. The Compaq\nservice manuals does not mention anything like this symptoms..
