I have a Videal ECS A900 Desknote which when it starts stste CMOS battery low.
I have no idea where to find any info or how to dismantle to change the battery. I have found step by step instructions on Toshiba to dismantle i would love the same on this Videal.

Any leads , thoughts or links would be much appreciated.

You may find it under one of the plates at the bottom, If not it means stripping it down. It will most likely be soldered in, if this is a old Laptop

From new it had Win Me so 6 years at most. i have just found a manual but it's more like a user guide.
The only covers on the bottom are hard drive and memory module.

There is a small jelly bean shape chrome part on the mobo with TXC 24.5 k3ef on top of it. Can you find me a picture of what it would lock like if different to desktop motherboard battery?

If there is a Strip running across the front of the screen with the buttons in it that is the first bit that comes of Normally slides to one side look for a pinole in the back to release it
