Can not open my toshiba laptop


Ok, on a laptop you need to get some cups and label them toput the screws in so you will know where they came from. Remove the PowerCord, Remove the Battery then start removing all thescrews from the bottom of the laptop. Then remove all the devices fromthe bottom of the laptop such as the hard drive, the memory, dvd/cd drive,wireless card, etc. Take note of how the wires are on the wireless card,those are the antennas.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slotfor screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the devicecases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold thekeyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but becareful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screwsthat hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gentlylift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift thelcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and thelcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note ofany cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift thepalmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottomcase, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory ofwhere things were.

Remove toshiba keyboard


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery. Look inside the battery compartment and see if any screws are there, if so remove them (the keys inside the battery compartment normally holds the strip that is above the keyboard). If you see a screw that has the icon of a keyboard beside it, then that screw holds the keyboard in place. Look along the bottom of the laptop for more screws that have the icon of a keyboard beside them and remove them. In fact you could just remove all screws from the bottom of the laptop just in case you have to remove the palmrest. Remove the screws from the covers that houses the memory and hard drive and check inside them for screws. Sometimes a keyboard screw might be inside them.

Turn the laptop over and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard by gently prying it off with a small flat head screw driver. Be careful because there might be a cable attached to it. If the strip above the keyboard is one big piece that requires the whole palmrest to be removed, then look along the sides and top of the keyboard for little catches that you can push to release the keyboard and it will come out without having to remove the palmrest.

if the you have to just remove the strip at the top of the keyboard, once it is removed there might be screws at the top of the keyboard that hide under the strip to remove. Once the screws are removed, gently try to lift the keyboard out. Small catches on the side might be holding it so you might have to work with pulling one side out first then the keyboard will come out. Be careful, there is a cable under the keyboard that plugs into the board. Remove the keyboard cable from the board then lift it all the way out.

How do I change a keyboard on a satellite A85-S107 laptop?


1. Take out the battery and AC adapter, unplugged from the wall, enusre the laptop is fully powered off.
2. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
3. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find them if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
4. Remove the plastic pieces carefully.
5. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
6. Disconnect the data cable attachment of the keyboard which will sever all the remaining attachments of the laptop keyboard with the laptop computer motherboard. To remove this cable, you have to just carefully pull it out from the socket to which it is attached. Then you can lift out the entire keyboard out of the laptop.
7. Take the new Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard out of the plastic and place it inside with the right orientation, attach the data cable.
8. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
9. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
10. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
11. Put the laptop battery back in place and switch it on to check Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 keyboard functionality. If everything has gone according to plan, you should be ready to type away!

A75-S229 won't recognize addition of 1GB of RAM. Added KTT3311 from Toshiba. Have rebooted twice and still shows 512MB of RAM.


Remove both sticks of RAM. Insert the "new" RAM where the "old" RAM was, and see if your computer reports "zero" RAM or 1GB of RAM. If the latter, put the "old" RAM into the "second" slot, and see if the detected RAM is the sum of the two sticks.

Where is the cmos battery located in the computer??????????


#1
Turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Remove the battery from its compartment on the bottom of the computer. Turn the laptop over and remove the screws holding the DVD drive in place and pull out the DVD drive.
#2
Remove the remaining screws on the bottom of the computer. These screws secure the wireless card cover, the memory card cover and the modem card cover. Then remove all of the plastic covers. Remove the wireless card by sliding it gently out.
#3
Remove the corner screws on the bottom of the laptop securing the bottom housing. Remove the housing by pulling it away from the laptop. Remove any remaining, exposed screws on the bottom of the computer.
#4
Turn the laptop over and remove the thin plastic strip that runs along the border of the keyboard with your fingernails. If your fingernails aren't long enough, a plastic card will work as well.
#5
Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard securing it to the computer. Remove the keyboard.
#6
Remove all of the exposed screws where the keyboard used to sit. These screws secure the top housing to the computer. Remove the housing, exposing the motherboard.
#7
Locate the CMOS battery. It is a small battery about the size and shape of a coin and should be easily visible on the board. Depending on the model of Toshiba you are working on, the CMOS battery will either be secured with a clip or connected to the board by two small cables. Either way, they are easily removable.
#8
Disconnect the battery by pulling gently away from the cables or by popping the clip out. Your CMOS battery can now be removed

Toshiba Satellite A75-S229 - how do I change the CMOS Battery?


This is  technical process :
what has to be done is the case to the laptop has to be opened (might be best left to a computer repair shop) to which has many steps to it as in 

Keyboard has to be removed 
monitor screen has to be disconnected 
a large number of screws have to be removed 

possibility of Hard drive / ram and a few other devices have to be removed 

once opened the battery has to be located to which is about the size of a nickle or quater that has wires connected to it and a small plug at the end of the wires to which connect to the motherboard 

simply disconnect and then connect the new battery 

now you have to make sure you have the right kind of battery for some laptops take a special battery to which is also totally different from desktops 

Hope this helps

Trouble seperating top cover from base/mobo / asus f3s notebook


Have you removed the keyboard, sometimes there is a screw under the keyboard that holds the top and bottom of the case together.
Most laptops have clips/indents that clips top and bottom half of the case together. Start on one side, preferrably at an opening where the CD/DVD drive is located and gently apply pressure to separate the case along that edge. Once you free a catch/clip start working along that edge and continuing around to each side of the case.
