Actually to order a charger you do not need the serial number but only to know which model it is ..and ..if you do not know ..and it is not readable anymore...just download and install Everest software ..and it will identify all inside ..including the model and such ..Another way is to see the specs of the charger and order one with the same specs...all you need is to have the same voltage and amperage and the plug to fit ..and be made for toshiba ..usually they have the same specs on several model ..

There are a couple of ways to do this. First, there should be a product and/or serial number on the charger itself. You could google these numbers. Also, sometimes, when you remove the battery there is more info about the laptop. Maybe the label where the serial number is unreadable has a readable produst number example (p/n). Lastly, often the replacements from the manufacture are expensive. You can get a universal charger at someplace like Best Buy for around $60.00.
One more possibility. When you turn on your computer, it may have some information about the computer on the screen before it boots to windows. You may be able to go into setup and se the model of the motherboard which could help in your search.

How do i fix rtc battery low press f2 key to set date/time but the keyboard does not respond


Replace the CMOS battery. Now known as the RTC Battery.
(Real Time Clock)
I believe 6C372759Q is the -> Serial Number
Toshiba = Manufacturer name
Satellite = Model Series
C855D = Model Series number
S5203 = Model number
Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5203
The above info just tells you what Toshiba laptop it is. NO personal information.
What you did was good for me, bad for you.
Explanation; In the old days I read that a bad guy, would use the Serial Number to find out the person's name, and home address. Or the name, and address the computer was listed to have been sold to.
Then they would watch the house, and find the homeowners schedule. (Case the house) Then rob the house. They know for one, the laptop is there.
I believe that......makes sense......makes the hair on the back of my neck go up too!
(Also read, that if they can tap into your computer, and see that you have a calendar on the desktop screen, with appointments set; they have your schedule. Know when you will be home, or doctors appointment, kids to xxxxx practice, dentists visit, vacation, etc)
Yes, I will be alerting FixYa staff to remove it.
It was good for me though, so I can find out exactly what Toshiba laptop we're talking about here.
1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
2) Buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
Electro Static Discharge. Here is but one example,
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245
You have to disassemble the laptop, in order to access the RTC (CMOS) battery. The RTC Battery is on the -> Bottom of the motherboard. Access is after removing motherboard out of Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover).
You have to disassemble from the Top down.
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C875-C875D-C870-C870D/disassemble-laptop-case-1.htm
What makes me think the Satellite C875D is so close to the Satellite C855D, that I can post a disassembly pictorial guide for a C855D? The Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover),
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-C855D-Bottom-Case-V000271740-With-memory-cover-not-pictured-/330896862554?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d0afd6d5a
Here is a photo of the Bottom view of the motherboard. This is the side the Processor, and Ram Memory are installed, also,
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-C855D-Motherboard-AMD-Integrated-1-3GHz-V000275390-Tested-/330868111843?pt=Motherboards&hash=item4d0946b9e3
SET, your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This enables the Zoom In feature. Now move to the Right. See the round silver looking thing with the Blue dot on it?
RTC Battery. It's a watch type battery. Looks like a CR2032, as used in most desktop computers. HOWEVER, the number will be on the battery. May NOT be a CR2032. May be smaller.
Post back in a Comment if this is what you wish to do. If you want I will try my best to step by step you through it. If not peel off $75 to $125 for a computer repair shop to perform this.
(They get paid for their technical knowhow...Not how physically hard the job is..........)
For additional questions please post in a Comment.

A friend gave me a toshiba satelits A55-S1063...I can not get it to open..Where can I get the recovery disk for it????


Toshiba is a popular name in the world of technology, and the printers, servers, desktops and notebooks the company makes are widely used in both homes and offices. While most of the time these Toshiba laptops will run without problems, there are times when laptop owners will need to take their computers back to factory new condition. In order to restore your notebook you will first need to get a copy of the recovery disk.
Turn the laptop over and locate the serial number label. The serial number label should be located on the bottom of the case. Open up the laptop and look for the model number. The model number should be located along the top of the keyboard. If the model number is not listed there, look for a model number label on the bottom of the case. Call Toshiba tech support at (800) 457-7777 to order the recovery CD. When calling, you will need to supply the representative with the serial number of your unit. You will also need a credit or debit card to cover the cost of shipping. http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/Drivers-and-Utilities/Restore-disk/m-p/49692 Hope this helps.

Will Toshiba send me another serial number sticker that has been rubbed off of the bottom? The repair shop said that it has to have one.


They MIGHT, if you can prove you bought the laptop, however, i would be contacting Microsoft first to see where you stand.
If you need to know the serial key, this may help:

I can only assume that the repair shop must be re-installing windows if they need a serial key

Normally serial numbers are only found on the manufacturer tag on the laptop or the tag on the box it came in. Take a photo of the laptop or cut/copy the tag from the box. Suggest you keep a copy of all submissions in case they lose it.
