Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite U300-ST3091 Notebook ?

How to change my motherboard battery (how to disassemble the laptop) i need a manual how to disassemble my laptop with pictures if possible.


Answers :

I scoured the interweb and couldn't find one :( but don't be afraid! You can tackle this without a manual. Here's how I would do it (and I have disassembled MANY laptops)\015\012
\015\0121. Unplug and remove battery\015\012
\015\0122. Search the bottom for tiny screws and unscrew them. You can keep track of these by either drawing a picture of the bottom of the laptop on a piece of paper and placing the screws where they came from, or you can set them up in a row on your coffee table so you at know what order they came out in and can recall which location they will go. All together you will probably end up with 15 tiny screws.\015\012
\015\0123. Search for more screws on the bottom, check the battery slot, check little panels, and run your fingers across the stickers to see if you can feel any hidden screws.\015\0124. When you think you got all the screws, turn the laptop right side up and lift up the screen (as you would to use it so it's out of the way) and, with a precision flathead screwdriver, search the perimeter of the keyboard for tiny spring-loaded holders that hold the keyboard in place. Some laptops have these, some don't. If you don't find any, move on. Keep in mind that if you miss any screws, holders, or whatever -- it isn't the end of the world. As long as you take it slow, you will feel spots of resistance where you forgot to remove something and can go to take it out. \015\012
\015\0125. This part is a little scary the first time: starting from the bottom right corner, slowly start popping out the case, separating the bottom of the laptop from the 'top' of the laptop where your wrists rest while typing. It can be intimidating hearing your laptop 'pop' the way it does, but don't worry! They are just clamps that are SUPPOSED to do that! Again, go slow in case you forgot a screw. Your resistance should be coming from the edges where you are separating, NOT from the middle of the computer. Slowly work your way around until the two parts are completely separated, and those screws you missed earlier are removed.\015\012
\015\0126. Slowly lift up on the side holding the keyboard (if you found little springed clamps in step 4 you only have to lift up on the keyboard) until you can see the underside of the keyboard and the ribbon connecting it to the motherboard (along with a connector for the touchpad and perhaps another miscellaneous connection). All of which have ends to disconnect, nothing is soldered at both ends. The ribbon will be connected to the motherboard with a small 'door' that you can swing up to release the ribbon. Don't be afraid to use a little force, my first two laptops I ever disassembled i merely pulled the ribbon out without opening the door(!) The ribbons were fine, but i do NOT recommend risking that :P\015\012
\015\0127. With the keyboard disconnected and the other small cables disconnected you may now separate the 'top' holding the keyboard and the bottom of the laptop. Usually you can do this without removing the screen, but if the screen is a problem simply disconnects its cables and take it off. Note: no two cables in the laptop will be identical in either size or connection, so hooking everything back up is as simple as putting square pegs into square holes.\015\012
\015\0128. Behold the motherboard aka logicboard in all of its glory. She is delicate, but not too terribly delicate. Don't be afraid to touch her, just, be gentle. If you cannot see the battery, the holy grail, of your quest, then it must be on the other side. Start searching for screws holding the logic board to the bottom of the laptop, and remove them.\015\012
\015\0129. Remove the logicboard from its nest. It will probably put up a small fight with things poking through holes on the sides (headphone jack, VGA connector, etc). Just work them out. Like i said before, she isn't that delicate; don't be afraid to use a little force. Expect a wire here and there to get snagged. Turn the logicboard over and replace your battery! \015\012
\015\01210. Because your logic board is out of its hole, plug it into the wall set on rubber or something and fire it up once, for the adventure, to see a naked computer run. Take pictures, post online, lie to her when she sees them in the morning. \015\012
\015\01211. Reassemble the same way you disassembled, but in reverse. It is that simple!\015\012
\015\012To get an idea of what you will undergo, I recommend searching around reading a couple laptop disassembly guides. the Acer A150 and Macbook Pro should give you a good idea of the different spectrums, and a google search should benefit (Hint: google aspireoneuser and ifixit). And take a look at this picture to familiarize yourself with enemy territory before exiting friendly lines:\015\012http://cdn-write.demandstudios.com/upload//8000/800/00/3/28803.jpg\015\012
\015\012Good luck! You will learn much by tackling this beast head on. Trust me, you won't need a guide. They are only useful for pesky hidden screws that just take a little extra time to hunt down. When you start taking it apart, if you had a guide, you wouldn't hardly look at it once you started getting it open. It is pretty straight-forward.

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem. I noticed that the laptop does get really hot, even with a cooling unit underneath it. The computer is now not wanting to turn on after restarting due to recent updates. I get a power light on after pushing the button a few times, no other lights are on, the CPU fans does turn on and the cd rom does spin. F 12
