I have a Toshiba Satellite A45-S120 that is a my back-up laptop. How much of it do i need to disassemble to reach the cooling fan and the RTC battery? The fan sometimes doesn't work. The RTC is working, but I think it will need replacing sometime soon. And are there replacement hinges? i need to prop the lid open because the hinges are broken/worn.

Thanks. Went to the link but haven't been able to find dis assembly instructions yet. I guess the answer is just to keep removing screws until there are no more, and then figure out why the case doesn't split. And the hinges don't appear anywhere. Maybe I need to buy a non-working unit on e-Bay and experiment on that and salvage the hinges. On the other hand a pair of brass hinges might be a nice touch . . . .

You need to call the people I referred you to and ask them about the hinges. They don't list them, but they say they can get any parts.

Got it. Thanks. It's too good a product to simply cast off.

Actually, the really important thing I need is help in accessing the RTC battery and the cooling fan for the hard drive. The hinges aren't important if I can't deal with the other two items first.
