My Compaq Presario Got a New Battery

Posted on: March 13, 2011

Finally, my old Compaq Presario got a new lease on life with a new 12-cell battery which I bought off eBay recently. My laptop has been suffering for a good year now with the old 6-cell battery which gave me almost 15 minutes of power. The new battery seems to give me a good day of work which is great considering the age of my laptop and the overall shelf age of any new battery I get for it.

My Compaq Presario (V2650CA) still runs Windows XP which I am considering to upgrade to Windows 7 when I give it more RAM. Currently it only has 1GB of RAM and that cause the system to crawl if it ran Windows 7. The RAM type is a bit old (DDR) so it wont be cheap to upgrade.

“Why even bother?” you ask? Good point. I mean it’s an old laptop and probably exceeded its end of life date but, nevertheless, it’s still running and can act as a good backup laptop if I ended up investing in a new system.
