Hi all, I have an old Toshiba Satellite SA60-672 which I wish to give to a child but I think it needs a new CMOS battery. I have no manual for it nor can I find much on Google. Not keen on taking laptops apart willy nilly so any help or links would be appreciated.
Thanks Woodchip but nothing under the flaps which I was hoping for. If it has flaps then why not one for the CMOS battery I ask myself. Looks like a complete strip down and you know what a pain that is.
Had a look Sparky and they all indicate a strip down. I was hoping that someone knew an easier way but thanks for your input anyway.
I have a Toshiba Portage, a 10 inch lap pie that came my way as 'dead'
It's under side is flush except of battery.
Its innards are accessed by lifting off the speaker bezel--tthere are finger nail slots each end. Then keyboard and motherboard simply held in by a few screws and connectors-a simple job with suitable fine Philips driver
The thing tobear. in mind is a lovely Asian lady snapped the thing together in minutes if not seconds. So find a quiet corner,clean uncluttered corner and no distraction' a footy free mind and get crackin
Hi again, looked at various videos so before I embark on a destruction derby
I want to be sure that it is the CMOS battery. I entered the time
and date this morning and have shut
it down and
restarted it about 10 times
and it is maintaining the settings. I would have
thought that a battery either works or does not
or is it a rechargeable one in a laptop as it had not
been used for 2wks before
it required the time and date re-entered. Puzzled by this.
Still OK this morning so I don't know what happened. On at least three occasions when I started it up it would not boot to XP until I had entered the date and time and then press F1 or F2 then it would load.
