    To further clarify. It is a Vaio VGC-LS35E. It is an all-in-one. Unlike many laptops, there don't seem to be videos showing how to disassemble it. I'd like to know where I'm headed before starting the teardown. Thanks

Check with Google and utube. Be careful - it is a Sony and traditionally their products can be bears to work on.

Testimonial: "I had already searched there unsuccessfully. Yes, it is a bear and much less common than all those HP and Dell laptops that have great videos and manuals and schematics."

    Well, you might try either going to Sony web site and under support sending them an email asking them for assistance or calling them on their 800 number. You have nothing to lose and all to gain if they help you out. Having anyone service a Sony is expensive proposition.

How to replace cmos battery compaq presario cq62-423nr


The CMOS cell is located on the motherboard; however the process of getting to the area is difficult. One small mistake and the entire computer is finished. Best a Professional who has the technical skills to open the case and get to the internal parts could save the day. If the computer is old, the cost is far too great to get professional assistance. If you still feel you are comfortable disassembling the computer, go to HP.Com and locate the computer, get the service manual and follow the directions from there.

How to reset BIOS password on a laptop.


On a Laptop often you have to disassemble the computer to remove the battery or jump the CMOS reset.
On some laptop, like many Dells, and thinkpads the battery can be accessed from one of the slots at the bottom, and it is located deep at one side of the slot.
More commonly battery is located on lower side of the motherboard, and to access it you will have to remove the motherboard.
Better getting schematics before disassembling the laptop.

Do not disassemble the laptop unless you have done this operation several times before, and you have practice.

Before disassemblying remove battery and unplug the AC adapter.
Do not short any pins unless you are sure that you are jumping the CMOS reset pins, even without main laptop battery you can still damage components touching here and there.

The best way to erase CMOS is removing the laptop battery for one minute, thn pputting it back.

This will reset CMOS to factory and erase BIOS settings.

Where is the location of the Cmos battery for my


You really need a service manual to try & locate the CMOS battery. With laptops the CMOS battery can be different on each model. These are often located on the motherboard below the keyboard, but a service manual should help you.

How do I replace a dead cmos on acer 4520LCi travelmate laptop? The laptop no longer keeps track of system time when shut off completely. Can you tell me the exact location of the cmos so I can be able to...


Hi,

what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.

Locating the cmos battery in a toshiba satellite m45-s165


Hi,
If you have disassembled your toshiba unit, and you are somewhat new in electronics, you cannot see the battery similar to other PC, bcoz its battery is somewhat soldered, and the only things you migt notice is its two colored wire (black and red) attached to a round, flat, insulated (wrapped with insulation) battery.
