Turn the laptop over and remove the battery pack.
From the bottom of the laptop, unscrew the plastic shells securing the slots for memory,
Bluetooth, hard drive and modem.
You may have to remove more than one screw for each shell. Keep all screws in a small container, away from the work area.
Remove the memory (RAM) modules, the hard drive and any optical drives (CD-ROM or DVD-ROM).
Press the clips on either end of the memory slot to raise the RAM module and detach by pulling it out. Work slowly and carefully, to prevent damage to RAM modules or the memory slot.
Do the same for all modules, if you have more than one.
Slide out the hard drive and optical drive. If the drives seem to be stuck, look for any screws you may have missed.
Turn the laptop over and insert a pointy tool under the thin strip at the top of the keyboard. Use the tool as a lever to pry the securing strip loose, while working with your finger to release latches along the length of the strip.
Remove the keyboard by undoing two screws securing it.
Raise the keyboard and disconnect its cables.
Close the laptop lid and turn it around, so that you are facing ports on the back.
Remove two screws from the metal plate around the ports.
Open the lid and remove a single screw securing the wireless card cover; the screw is under the keyboard, which you already removed.
Disconnect cables from the motherboard.
Access the board through the space created by removing the keyboard. Unplug the speaker cable from the motherboard by carefully pulling at its head.
Unscrew and remove Wi-Fi antennas, and detach the wireless card from the motherboard. Unplug thin, ribbon-like cables from the video card.
Detach the display assembly from the base of the laptop.
Loosen any attachments, and pull the casing toward you to detach the display assembly, including the LCD panel, from the base.
With the motherboard completely exposed, unscrew and remove the video card.
Undo two screws from either side of the hard drive housing and detach the drive.
Dismount the CPU heat sink and detach the fan cable from the motherboard by removing five screws.
You can now access the battery board with the CMOS battery attached to it.
Undo two screws to detach the battery board from the motherboard.
Disconnect two cables running from the battery board, and carefully raise the board to detach it.
Replace the CMOS battery by prying it open with a pointy tool. Insert a new battery and reassemble the laptop.
hope this helps

Its called the yellow light of death. The fix is really simple, but the taking the console can be complex. So if you are up to the challenge hear it is.
Things that you will need: Heat gun, non-corrosive liquid flux (Found at stores like Fry's and anyplace that sells PC boards, also sold online at www.amozon.com), 1 tube of Thermal compound, 1 bottle of rubbing alcohol, 2 different sizes jewelers screwdrivers 1 small and 1 medium, Torks 9 screwdriver(Not necessary but helpful to get the 1st outer top panel off), Phillips No. 2, Phillips No. 1, and a tiny Phillips the size you would use for eyeglasses.
NOTE: Only the 80g consoles with the multi-port SD card reader on the front. These models will have the Blue-Ray ribbon cable accessible without having to pull power supply 1st. You will also have to pull the card reader and Wi-Fi/USB board from the front in order to remove the power supply, the only tricky thing on the card reader board is the ribbon cable connected under the PC board that connects to the motherboard it needs to be disconnected before the card reader board is removed. Also on these models for the removal of the motherboard you will have to remove the ribbon cable, PC board, and mounting bracket from the on/off sensor on the front right part of the casing. Once you have the motherboard and heat-sink out turn the unit over and on the HDD cage there are 2 small screws that have to be removed before you can separate the 2 of them. Looking at the back where all the cables hook-up, the plastic backing needs to separated from the motherboard. Turn the motherboard over and you will see on the plastic backing has little clips that you can unsecure by hand so it can be removed.
1. Disconnect all cords, cable, etc.......
2. Pull your HDD.
3. Pull the 2 outer top covers off.
4. After the 2 outer top covers are off, unplug the Blue-Ray player from the motherboard its front side on the left side of the deck. Lift the player slowly there is 1 ribbon cable on the bottom of it. Depending on your what model of machine yours, it will unplug from the motherboard either left side towards the back under the player or directly underneath the component to the left of the player. To disconnect the cable (using your finger nail) put the edge of your nail under the plastic locking clamp and slowly pry up and then slide cable opposite of locking clamp.
5. Remove the Wi-Fi board from off the front of the console in addition to that there is a black wire that runs from the Wi-Fi board to the back of the machine that you will need to unscrew.
6. Remove all screws that are holding the power supply down. There is also a yellow and green wire at the back that you will have to unscrew, next remove the plug from the back of the power supply, finally place the tips of your fingers under both underneath sides of the power supply and pry gently until the component unplugs from the motherboard.
7. Remove all screws around the outer edge of metal cover of motherboard.
