SOURCE: want to replace cmos battery in Toshiba Satellite A10

On Toshiba laptops you hit the ESC key as soon as you turn it on & then you
are given the option to hit the F1 key to enter bios.


As to the cmos battery, they couldn't have hidden it better if it was the Queen's diamond!

It is near the bottom of the laptop on the right side, almost directly beneath the pause/break key.
Problem is, you have to disassemble the entire laptop to get at it!

Disassembly instructions for the Satellite A10 are here

Best of luck

SOURCE: How do I find and remove the cmos battery?

I went to a site where they explained how to get into certain Toshiba Satillite laptops, and I don't remember seeing your model, but I do remember that on some models, you have to take the whole computer apart just to get to it. Here's the website- they also refer you to another website where you can download manuals.

I think some are simpler than others, but some are pretty tough. Good luck, hope it's easier than it seems!

SOURCE: The CMOS battery seems to

remove the wireless card and the modem card under the keyboard ..and you should have access to the battery ..(It may not look like the classic desktop battery ) ..Usually there is the location for Toshiba laptops ..but if you do not see it after you remove the modem card ..you will have to remove all and strip it to the motherboard...
here is how the modem will look http://www.irisvista.com/
For to get to teh motherboard..you will have to remove all from it ..battery ..hdd...disk drive ..and all the screws on the back ..including ones hidden in teh battery compartment ..in the hdd compartment ..and all the edges..and when you removed them all (including the display so thet will not stay in the way ) you snap the covers off by inserting s plastic blade ..and from a corner snap out step by step ..
I never actually opened this model ..but I opened many Toshiba laptops ..and only once I found the battery not under the modem ..

Lost password...No help on internet so far for this model


There's only two ways to reset the CMOS battery on this laptop.One is to short out two solder points on the motherboard, which works on this model, as per this guide:

The other is to contact Toshiba for support. They'll be able to help so long as you can prove ownership.

How to change mainboard battery?


Most PC users don't think much about the CMOS battery until their computer shows signs of losing its BIOS settings on boot up. If you tend to upgrade rather than replace your PC, replacing the CMOS battery every couple of years makes sense.
Likewise, if you purchase a used PC, battery replacement is a good idea unless the PC is less than two years old. It's just one more preventive step you can take to prevent troubles in the future.
If you have never replaced a CMOS battery before, you can find step-by-step instructions below.
In most cases, frequent CMOS errors are a sign of a dead battery. The CMOS battery maintains your settings while your PC is powered off. You can easily replace the battery yourself.


Instructions:
  1. Boot your PC and enter its setup mode.
  2. Write down all of the settings from the various BIOS menus. Click this link to learn more about this procedure.
  3. Power off your PC.
  4. Open the case of your computer

  5. Locate the battery on the motherboard.
    cmosreplace_4.jpg Figure 4. Battery location on the motherboard. The layouts of the components differ on different motherboards, so you'll have to consult your motherboard user manual for specifications about the battery and its location.
    This is a close-up view of the battery on the motherboard.

  6. Obtain a replacement battery from a local or online computer parts dealer.
  7. Remove the old battery.

  8. Replace it with the new one, as shown on the picture below.
    cmosreplace_7.jpg Figure 7. Replacing the battery.
  9. Document the date of replacement for future reference.
  10. Replace the case and power on the PC.
  11. Enter the setup mode of your PC.
  12. Reenter the settings you have written down from the various setup menus.
Tips:
  1. Don't forget to observe proper anti-static precautions when working inside the case of your PC.
  2. If you can't see your battery right away, try removing expansion cards or unplugging cables. The majority of newer motherboards use lithium batteries that look like large watch batteries.
If the battery is already dead and you receive messages saying "CMOS checksum error", skip Step 1 and Step 2.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 with a bios password I don't know (original owner is deceased). How can I bypass or remove?


Remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard. Turn it over, open it up, and look for a little watch battery.

Not boot from factory CD -where is CMOS battery?


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Based on your post/description:
  • Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173;
  • new HDD;
  • would install WinXP.
Your concerns are:
  • media/cable fault;
  • CMOS battery;
  • laptop battery.
  • will not complete format;
  • will not install OS (WinXP).
Proposed course of action and other ideas:
  1. double check the new HDD, verify that the pins are not bent and are seated correctly. If all else fails, return the new HDD and have it replaced;
  2. try partitioning/formatting the new HDD in another PC using a 2.5 IDE to USB external adapter;
  3. clean the lens of the DVD/CD ROM drive;
  4. remove the dead laptop battery and use only the AC power when installing;
  5. most current laptops do not use a CMOS battery;
  6. if you want to revert CMOS/BIOS settings to default, it could be done by pressing on ESC or F1 or as indicated in the display (depends on the version) and set all possible settings to default. Verify that it is set to boot from the CD drive.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
