Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

How to safely remove the CMOS battery

\015 I'm hoping by doing that, the factory boot defaults will be restored. I'm working on a Toshiba Satellite A105-4011. It is disassembled down to the MB. The battery holder looks pretty fragile and I don't want to break it. How is this done safely?Thanks!\015

Answers :

The battery is a button type battery, you can release by pressing the metal clip to the side and the battery should pop up, if not use a thin blade screw driver to lift the battery up whilst pressing the metal clip to the side, Do not hold the battery (top & bottom) with metal tweeters, you will create a short circuit condition.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
