You should have a manual that would give you that information.

Typically, it would be directly under the keyboard so you will need to remove the keyboard to get to it. Your manual should tell you how to do that.

Turn off the power and disconnect from mains.

pop the little strip at the top of your keyboard using a flat screwdriver. it will be a little hard to get off and you may need to gently prise it off section by section.

Underneath you will find 2 screws at the top of the keyboard unit, unscrew these

gently lift the keyboard and the battery will be under there.

Hope this helps.

Failing that there are 17 screws on the back of the laptop and between 1-3 in the battery compartment. You may need to remove these to remove the black piece of cover (with speakers in it) . Then remove the four screen screws in the top left and right corners. The you can remove the complete cover. Be careful though as there are wires and connectors attached. You can't miss the battery then.
