Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
Where is the third screw in the battery compartment? I removed the cover and two screws at the bottom of the remote and cannot see another screw.
There is no third screw there. There are four more screws which are accessed by prying off the GREY panel on the front of the remote.
Six screws total. Take 'em all out and it comes apart.

Hi DM - my mistake. I was thinking of another remote. So many remotes. I will post the correct fix on your original thread. Once you read it could you PLEASE rate both as fixed. Believe me, it's the right answer. I don't want to have an extra thread open for the same problem. Thanks.

Shut down your Toshiba laptop, and then disconnect all cables. Close the
LCD lid, and then place the laptop face down on a flat surface. Position the
laptop with front edge facing you.
Locate the battery pack near the top section of the laptop's bottom
casing. Press on the battery release button. Remove the battery from the
Locate the cooling fan compartment cover. Its location varies from
laptop to laptop, but it will be the only hardware cover with a vent in it.
Remove the Phillips-head screws securing the fan's cover in place. Remove the
cover from the laptop.
Disconnect the fan's cable from its connector on the motherboard. Remove
the Phillips-head screws securing the fan in place. Lift the old fan out of the
fan compartment and set it aside. Removing the old fan will reveal the
processor chip. Apply a thin coat of thermal grease to the processor's surface
using a clean paper towel. This will prevent your new processor from frying
once you power on your laptop.
Place the new cooling fan assembly inside the fan compartment. Align the
screw holes on the new fan with the screw holes inside the compartment. Replace
the four retaining Phillips-head screws, and then reconnect the fan's power
cable to the motherboard. Replace the fan compartment's plastic cover, and its
retaining Phillips-head screws.
Replace the battery pack and reconnect all power cables and external
devices. Turn on your laptop to test the new cooling fan
