SOURCE: Cooling Han is noisy

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.

You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.
never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.
Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.
Hope this gives you the information you need

SOURCE: how do I get to the CMOS battery on the sony vaio

Carefully open your laptop by unscrewing it.
Lift the back cover and you will see the mother board.
You will see a large flat round battery.
That is your CMOS battery.

SOURCE: Can you tell me where the cmos battery is located

If it is not where you can see a slot on the side or back, I would bet it's under the keyboard. The Sony support page may have the answer.

How to replace internal battery for Sony PCG-955A


If you mean the cmos battery you will probably need to take the laptop apart - if you are lucky it may be under the keyboard - look at the screws on the back and see if any show symbols for keyboards.

There is a vaio manual here.
