Question about Computers & Internet
Trying to get the cover off my laptop to access the cmos battery, I have removed all the screws from the back and still no access . . .
The CMOS batteries in a lot of laptops are sort of hidden in the palm rest. You may be able to see it if you remove the main battery and look up into the case. The last one I changed, I could see it. If not, you will have to separate the two halves of the case and then you'll find it.

Shut down your laptop and disconnect all power sources. Turn the laptop over and lay it face down.
Remove the screws that secure the hard drive cover and remove the cover. Take out the remaining screws that secure the hard drive to remove it.
Locate the RAM (random access memory) and wireless card cover. This is often located in the center of the laptop. Remove the retaining screws and take off the cover.
Remove the RAM module by spreading the retaining latches on each side. Tilt the RAM module at an angle and slide it out of its compartment.
Disconnect the cables from the wireless card and remove the screws that secure the wireless card to the motherboard. Remove the wireless card from the laptop.
Locate the CMOS battery. It is about the size of a coin and is secured by a clip. Unclip the CMOS battery and remove it from its compartment. Insert the new one and reassemble the laptop.
