Presario 12XL505 battery by B
I have a Presario 12XL505 laptop, with 2 dead batteries. I wondered if anyone had ever tried to open a battery, and replace cells with generics from Radio Shack or somewhere? Can it be done? New batteries are just too pricey. Thanks - Brian

Armada - new HD - no BIOS by bam
I understand I have to get some SoftPak program from HP's web site and create a small partition on the new drive to make a home for the BIOS. Do I need to reformat the hard drive in order to create this partition, or can I do it without affecting the current O/S and all my programs? Thanks Bryan
