Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Replace CMOS battery
\015 Hello, I need to replace the CMOS battery of my laptop Samsung A10 but cannot find any instructions how to find it and how to dismantle the computer. Can anybody help me please ?\015
The CMOS battery is on your motherboard. It looks like a small watch battery. As for as dismantling it there are no directions on the Samsung website. Best thing to do is check You Tube on how to dismantle a laptop or by Scott Mueller's book on Amazon.com how to troubleshoot and repair laptops. There is not enough room on this website to go thru each step. Basically you turn it over and start taking out all the screws and panels until you get to the motherboard.
