Take the laptop apart techgeek564.
You Definitely do Not want it roaming around in there, to short out the laptop.

Go to the 11th line down.

[The Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 is part of the Toshiba Satellite L450 series ]
After you click on L450 it will take about 5 seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Took 45 seconds for me just now)
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

A) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
B) Buy and use an ESD wrist strap. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)
Your body carries Static electricity, and Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
The ESD wrist strap will relieve your body of Static, and safeguard your laptop from Static shock
Average price of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6. Much cheaper than a new laptop.
C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types.
Do Not mix them up!
You can use a clean egg carton, and mark the egg holders.
D) Make a record as you disassemble. Make drawings and notes. Use a camera, or videocam if available.
(Use Good lighting)
It's nice to have a record to refer back to in case you get interrupted.
