Having problems with your Gateway 450SX4 Notebook ?

Need to replace the cmos battery on a gateway 450sx4 laptop.

\015 Is it under the keyboard, or is it deeper in the frame?\015

Answers :

Some are way deep inside, and you have to remove the top part of the case from the bottom.
\015\012Some others, you can remove the top power strip, (unscrew screws in the battery compartment, and sometimes on the bottom) and then unscrew the keyboard, and when you remove that, sometimes you can get right to it.
\015\012The only problem is, some of the laptop batteries are odd ducks, and not just the standard, they have wires or a metal tag on them. You can always order a new one onces you get to it.
