Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
I dont know how to take off the battery - PC Laptops
Search the bottom of the laptop for a latch or button with a battery or lightning bolt symbol on it.
If it is a laptop battery you will need to flip it over and there will be a release switch / lever. You will need to slide the lever to activate the release. This will usually pop up the battery, but if not then slide the release and there should be a way to pry up the battery. Hope this helps.
