Re: [edlug] cmos battery (possibly not strictly a linux query but the laptopdoes have linux on it)



In my experience, all Toshiba laptops have internal screws hidden under
keyboard. You have to take out all the screws as you have done (make sure
you have taken out any hidden in the battery/hard drive compartments too)
then there is usually some kind of plastic bar or tab around the edge of the
keyboard. Pries this up and you can then take off the keyboard and remove
the internal screws holding the case on.

It may be hard to find this bar/tab, but I assure you it's there. Look above
and below the keyboard for anything that might come off.

Hope that helps.
