I need to replace the CMOS battery on a Toshiba Satellite P105. I thought it'd be a simple coin cell that I could replace. But I can't find a coin cell on the MB. Where is this dang battery and how do I replace it!
Thanx for the help.

I read the section in the manual about the battery. It says if you get this message "BAD RTC BATTERY BAD CHECKSUM (CMOS)
CHECK SYSTEM" to leave the computer plugged into an outlet for 24 hours to recharge the RTC battery. It does not go over how to replace it in the manual. I will try to find something else......looks like it does not use a standard cmos battery. Here's a link to a replacement battery, take a look at the picture.
