My fan died on the Armada M700. I can't get it to start spinning again and
XP reboots every 20 minutes or so. I'm guessing it is doing this because
the laptop is getting too hot.

I have taken all the screws out of the casing that I can find but I still
can't take it apart to expose the motherboard. I have been trying to find
information on how to change the fan, even a service manual, but haven't
had any luck.

The fan looks like a pain to change since it is on the bottom of the
laptop.

anyone know where I can find a manual?

In a rush this morning, but here is the general link for such things from
the Compaq FAQ published here weekly.
