10 beeps ( 3 short pause 4 short pause 3 short) Toshiba satellite a70

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk and remains active until turned off.

make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery has charge and dust free sockets are clean and dust free and the ram modules are securely seated in some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) SATA make sure they have a secure connection

check your video card for secure dust free socket

and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

one bad lead will end with a computer error
a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and have an end to function properly

even something as small as a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

hope this helps

Where is the cmos battery located in the computer??????????

Turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Remove the battery from its compartment on the bottom of the computer. Turn the laptop over and remove the screws holding the DVD drive in place and pull out the DVD drive.
Remove the remaining screws on the bottom of the computer. These screws secure the wireless card cover, the memory card cover and the modem card cover. Then remove all of the plastic covers. Remove the wireless card by sliding it gently out.
Remove the corner screws on the bottom of the laptop securing the bottom housing. Remove the housing by pulling it away from the laptop. Remove any remaining, exposed screws on the bottom of the computer.
Turn the laptop over and remove the thin plastic strip that runs along the border of the keyboard with your fingernails. If your fingernails aren't long enough, a plastic card will work as well.
Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard securing it to the computer. Remove the keyboard.
Remove all of the exposed screws where the keyboard used to sit. These screws secure the top housing to the computer. Remove the housing, exposing the motherboard.
Locate the CMOS battery. It is a small battery about the size and shape of a coin and should be easily visible on the board. Depending on the model of Toshiba you are working on, the CMOS battery will either be secured with a clip or connected to the board by two small cables. Either way, they are easily removable.
Disconnect the battery by pulling gently away from the cables or by popping the clip out. Your CMOS battery can now be removed

System date keeps going back by one year everytime i restart the machine

It's time to change the CMOS battery in the Motherboard.
It will solve your problem.

On how to find the CMOS battery

you will have to open up the '**** shell' and remove all of the B25 and F6 screws from the bottom, as well as the B16 and B6 screws under the keyboard. To remove the keyboard, you have to pry up the trim piece that holds the power button and remove three screws. Be careful of the wireless wire leads, as you'll be tempted rip them out!

The CMOS battery will be under the right side of the hand rest, next to the mouse. It has two leads and the battery is in a blue 'bag'.

That's it.
