Hi AshishB, Yes, Toshiba does refer to the CMOS battery in their literature as the real time clock battery. Your retailer is half right, the battery is on the motherboard but its attached via a connector and it can be replaced. Here are links to a couple of venders that sell the RTC battery for your laptop: - Http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,L15-S104,Laptop,Batteries-Backup-RTC.aspx - http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-Laptop-motherboard-battery-cmos-L15-S104_W0QQitemZ170060189842QQihZ007QQcategoryZ3666QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

Unfortunately it is a fairly involved procedure, one of the more complex I?ve seen for a newer laptop. If you don?t have prior experience, tools and some nerve I?d suggest you take it to a shop. Some of the more challenging parts you are going to remove are the keyboard, the top half of the case, the wireless card and some of the wiring harness. -Remove the battery pack, any PCMCIA cards, the optical drive and the hard drive. -Open the laptop and carefully pry the keyboard holder (thin piece of plastic at the top of the keyboard. Toshiba has a special tool for this but in times past I have been able to successfully remove other Satellite Pro series keyboards with a plastic probe. Once that is off remove the two retention screws at the top of the keyboard, carefully disconnect the cable and remove the keyboard. -With the keyboard removed you will see the wireless card torx security screw at the top just to the left of center. Remove it, the cover plate and the card underneath. In order to remove the card you will also have to disconnect the white and black coax leads. When removing and reassembling note that these connectors are really small and fragile. -Flip the laptop over and remove all 15 screws. There are three different types so mark down where they go for reassembly later. -At the rear of the computer you will find 2x screws, one to the right of the VGA connector and the other in-between the serial and lpt1 port; remove them as well. -You will have to disconnect several leads and wire harnesses in order to lift off the top half of the case. -Once the case is removed the RTC battery is in the lower right hand corner. -Now all you have to do is reassemble the laptop and test. Good luck and don?t forget to rate this post.

if a laptop its usually a shrink wrapped green sleeve with 2 wires red and black and connector on end, the silver cr232 (looks like giant watch battery) is a p.c. cmos battery, flips out if you push on two retainers ive just replaced my notebook rtc battery on a tosh a50 it involved taking full base of with a little memory of were screws go! as if wrong screw and to long nice lumps on inner of your lappy, last thing isolate either p.c. or laptops power including battery as to avoid damageing or killing your board easyiest way of understanding..............

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
