Comment 25 for bug 370173

I think you may have something with the battery. After reporting this a while ago, my Compaq Armada M700 has not drastically over heated again - although it has been running 10 degrees or so hotter than it did with Gutsy-Intrepid (58 not 48 when idling).

Until last night. I usually run it plugged in, with the battery in place. I noticed the orange 'battery charge' light was on which is rare, then a few minutes later there was a 'pop' (I think just the speakers) and it froze. When I held it to turn it off it didn't respond to the keyboard, mouse or soft power button, and it was scorching hot.

After a hard reset, then a cool down, it's been fine again. No charging light.
