Alienware Laptop CMOS Location

Hi to all.

I have just bought an old alienware area51-m laptop. It appears that the cmos battery is about to die. I cannot find a disassemble manual anywhere. Can anyone help by telling me how to disassemble it?

Thanks,

Stewart

  1. Since you haven't specified the exact model here are some available service manuals that can be viewed or downloaded:

    I haven't specified a particular model because on the back the sticker say "area51-m" no numbers or letters after that. Maybe that is all it is called.
