Locating the cmos battery in a toshiba satellite m45-s165

I have gone thru all the software and bios related remedies to fix the internal clock, it appears that it is actually the cmos battery that needs to be replaced. I have disassembled the computer and now I can not locate the battery. Please any help would be appreciated.

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.

Four beeps indicates -
The system clock/timer IC has failed or there is a memory error in the first bank of memory.

Try replacing the CMOS/RTC battery (consult your manual), if it does not help, you might need a new motherboard.

Remove password the bios of toshiba m45-s169


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

The laptop is dead.


It does sound like your cmos battery. It is located on your system board. If your confident you can take the laptop apart and get the details from the battery and then goto a pc shop and buy a new one if not take the laptop to the shop and they can replace it for you.

Where is the cmos battery in a toshiba m45 s165. I have looked for the red and black leads and don't see them. I really didn't want to completely disassemble until it's the last resort.


Yes silverdragon is right. I just disassembled my m45 to replace the cmos. It appears to be soldered. There are no red and black wires though. You must disassemble.

Forgot password fot toshiba satellite m45-s169


Thats a Power On Password...I believe the only way that you can get around/reset/disable it...is by taking out the battery out of the Cmos. I will be looking for more ways other then that but thats one that i know works...
If you would like to attempt it...i dont recommend it for the no computer people...look up fourms and see if others have had the same problem or if people have taken the computer apart and replaced the cmos battery
