How do I disassemble an Ascentia J series CSS10 notebook computer?

Hi,
I have a positively ancient Ascentia J Series J30 P-100 CSS10 notebook computer which I still use to control stepper motors. This notebook has worked ok for years but last night it gave a message saying the bios battery has failed. I was wondering how to replace the battery as I can't work out how to pull the case apart. There seems to be a few clips holding it which I can't see.

Thanks,
Geoff

Problem is almost solved. There is a good video on how to take apart a laptop on Youtube. I've almost done it, I keep running out of time due to family things getting in the way.

Here's the URL:

Although the laptop shown isn't the same as mine, the method used is working for me. I've removed the HDD, battery, memory, the screen and the keyboard, so far. I just need to remove the plastic surrounding where the keyboard was.

I replaced my AST laptop battery with a RAYDR202I Battery Ascentia M AST Laptop Battery from Batteries Plus but now unit will not power up with battery in. If I take out and power up with adapter it works...


If you have the ability to test the battery, do so and make sure it's not bad. You can try plugging your machine in with the battery in it and giving it a few hours/over night to charge the battery before trying to power on. If neither of these help, return the battery. I understand batteries plus has a pretty good return policy.

If you have to return it, I'd recommend taking your laptop with you to ensure you receive a working unit.

Pictorial guide to disassembly of the A200/A205 series,

[Note* Page 2, 3, and 4, are listed at the top, and bottom of the page.

Under the main heading - Toshiba, go down to the subheading -
Satellite A10. (A10 in blue)
Go across, and click on A215. (In blue)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name { A215 }, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

The motherboard diagram follows this diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 TL-58, (Turion Core ), mobile Processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_mobile_microprocessors#.22Tyler.22_.2865_nm.29_2


Processor has two processor cores that can operate up to 1900MegaHertz, or also stated as 1.9GigaHertz.
(1900MHz/1.9GHz)

Does Not mean a total of 3.8GHz.
Total is still 1.9GHz. It's just two processor cores teaming up on the same task.

Chip and Chipset denote I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RX-690 (Southbridge chip is ATI SB600 )

The sound only works when the screen is in a certain position


Hi:
The Dell 700 series laptops have a common fail on the sound, because of a some what fragile ribbon cable that feeds the speakers that are mounted just below the LCD display. Your sould still works, just the ribbon cable is cracked, from opening and closing the lid.

You can find the part on ebay for less than $20, but it does require a bit of disassembly to get it swapped out.

Ast Ascentia J series Css


with laptops, the internal battery is usually on the mother board itself. Opening laptop to get to the battery should be done by some one that knows about computer because there's alot of screws and ribbons to remove. most laptops that I have dealt with, the battery is below the key board.

Error on the laptop


This must be a programme you use to back up any files everytime you shut down. But it seems as if the programme cannot find the correct partition to save the file to. See if there is anything on your startup menu (Start>Run> then type msconfig)that is running in the background ready to save when you powerdown.
