I cannot find out how to open a toshiba e405 to replace battery.
I purchased a replacement battery form my toshiba e405 pda. I removed the four screws on the back, but I can't seem to open the case.
I searched the internet for a diagram of the inside of the e405 hoping it would show how to install a battery. I couldn't find any information except the operators manual. The manual does not give any information.

Had the same problem. Did some research and fixed the problem by performing a "soft reset". Tap the reset indentation on the back once quickly. Do NOT hold it in or you will lose all saved data. Mine's working fine now.
There is a lot of very confusing information about this battery pack and PDA - many companies are selling the battery without instructions and many reviewers/users claim that there is no way to replace the battery. Acer makes no mention of this either way and didn't seem too keen to answer the question.
The screws that you mention appear to be the ones as at least one company is selling the battery with a screwdriver included that appears to be the one for the four thin screws. Just make sure there are no other screws hiding under a sticker or similar - running a stylus over any stickers should reveal any potential screws that may have to be removed (almost certainly opening the case will void the warranty if still an issue)
Another company is also selling an "unmarking case opening tool" which is essentially a small plastic spatula - therefore I believe that when the screws are out you should be able to push something gently into the gap between the shells, popping it open - from photos it would appear that the small groove between the shells in the corners are the places to start.
BE gentle and careful with this as the possibility of damage is there, but once one part of the shells start to separate you should be able to see clearer what is holding them together.
If you want a bit more info then try e-mailing these guys;
They should be able to help as they do sell the battery and are well respected.
Hope this helps and good luck :)
- if you are in any doubt about doing it yourself then i recommend finding a repair shop near you, although I cannot believe it is too complicated to open. if there is any confusion about actually swapping the battery once the case is open, please post back with a photo of the inside and I hope we can help, but i think it should be easy enough once you are in - make sure you ground yourself properly and touch as little as necessary when inside.

I don't think the scratch has anything to do with the screen alignment. You might end up replacing the screen and the alignment problem will persist.
The alignment screen coming up is probably due to other hardware problems, and it should be covered by a warranty if you got even a limited one on the demo, its not your fault for causing the scratch on the screen, it probably has nothing to do with it.
you shouldn't have waited a year with this problem.
about replacing the screen- try getting a dead toshiba pda that uses the same screen from ebay, one that still has a screen intact,
but don't go over your head with replacing it, don't go beyond a point where you don't remember anymore what goes where.
In my opinion it is definitely a hardware problem. If you have the same problem with two or more SD cards it must be hardware. Please contact Service partner in your country and ask them how they can help you.
