Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 Notebook ?

How do I change the battery on the motherboard of Toshiba 4600?

\015 How do I change the battery on the motherboard of a Toshiba Satellite 4600 laptop computer? Can it be changed? This is an older machine used only to program PCL's used in our manufacturing process. The battery must have gone dead because when booting the machine, we get a blue screen and have to update current date, etc. This machine originally came with Windows 98 installed, but this is the dedicated use of the machine.\015

Answers :

BSOD's (Blue Screen of Death) on the 4600 series almost exclusively come from bad memory sockets (you have two), while the RTC issue (date/time) is un-related. Only in extreme rare cases have I seen both memory sockets go bad - so you can probably get around one bad socket by using only the "other" socket. The memory compartment is at the bottom, square big door covering it held in by 2 screws.

\015\012The RTC battery (CMOS battery) requires separation of the lower case, as it's located between the main battery and the palmrest. To get to it:
\015\0121. remove all bottom screws labelled B16 and B6 (including ones within the battery compartment);
\015\0122. remove the 2 screws in the back of the laptop;
\015\0123. remove the keyboard cover strip above the keyboard;
\015\0124. remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard, disconnect and remove keyboard;
\015\0125. remove the 3 (B16) long screws on the left half, and the 2 short screws behind the CD-ROM drive.
\015\0126. disconnect video cable, floppy cable, and mouse cables, and wireless antennas.
\015\0127. now you can separate the lower case from the upper case/screen assy. You'll see the RTC (cmos) battery - it should be dressed in green with two wires (red/blk) connecting it to the motherboard.

\015\012That's should be it. I'm citing all this by heart, so forgive me if I miss a screw here or there.... :-)
Is the laptop functioning properly other than losing time and date? Explain please exactly what happens when you boot the computer. What does bluescreen say? It is not normal to get a blue screen just from a bad cmos battery. You cannot charge the battery but you can change it. All you have to do to change the battery is very carefully take apart the computer, locate the battery on the motherboard, unplug old and plug in new. You can probably order the new cmos off of ebay.
