Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 Notebook
Unfortunately it is a fairly involved procedure, one of the more complex I?ve seen for a newer laptop. If you don?t have prior experience, tools and some nerve I?d suggest you take it to a shop. Some of the more challenging parts you are going to remove are the keyboard, the top half of the case, the wireless card and some of the wiring harness. -Remove the battery pack, any PCMCIA cards, the optical drive and the hard drive. -Open the laptop and carefully pry the keyboard holder (thin piece of plastic at the top of the keyboard. Toshiba has a special tool for this but in times past I have been able to successfully remove other Satellite Pro series keyboards with a plastic probe. Once that is off remove the two retention screws at the top of the keyboard, carefully disconnect the cable and remove the keyboard. -With the keyboard removed you will see the wireless card torx security screw at the top just to the left of center. Remove it, the cover plate and the card underneath. In order to remove the card you will also have to disconnect the white and black coax leads. When removing and reassembling note that these connectors are really small and fragile. -Flip the laptop over and remove all 15 screws. There are three different types so mark down where they go for reassembly later. -At the rear of the computer you will find 2x screws, one to the right of the VGA connector and the other in-between the serial and lpt1 port; remove them as well. -You will have to disconnect several leads and wire harnesses in order to lift off the top half of the case. -Once the case is removed the RTC battery is in the lower right hand corner. -Now all you have to do is reassemble the laptop and test. Good luck and don?t forget to rate this post.

It's on the motherboard and you'll have to take the system apart to get to it. There's a step by step instruction set here http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm Take a look at step 16 ... "Lift off the battery board with the RTC battery to disconnect it from the system board. " So you'll have to get to at least step 16 ... I'd recommend you take it to a local repair shop as this isn't something for the faint of heart.
