I bought a battery and was told it was under the keyboard. I have
removed the keyboard, hard drive, cd drive, memory, and main battery. I
dont see it. Where the #### is it?

It's a nickle sized yellow disk with wires, but I cant find it.



There are two links to hardware maintenance manuals here.

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/deta...cID=MIGR-58315

I downloaded one of them, and the battery is a sleeved type, located
dead center while viewing the system from the keyboard side. It's
in roughly the same area, as the back end of the optical drive.
The sleeved battery fits into a curved holder, with a clip (arm)
over top of it.

Thanks to both of you guys I was able to find it and replace it. It was
under the palm rest, which comes off after the keyboard. 13 screws
total. You'd think they could make this easier to replace!
Particularly when those screws are so tiny that I had to buy magnifying
glasses to see them, and work on my bed in case I dropped one. (easier
to find on the bed sheet than on the floor). Either way, the job is
done till next time it goes dead.

Thanks again!!!!

These companies don't give a hoot how easy it is to maintain their device.
I'm surprised the screws were a Phillips head instead of a Torx drive when
few people have those screwdrivers. I wanted to change the headlight bulb
on my car and it took removing 20 screws and half the front end to get to
it. To change a bulb ???

This may sound pessimistic but I consider it realistic : Everything is a
piece of garbage, it is just a matter of how bad. If you think it is good,
it isn't ; it just sucks less than everything else !

Anyway, glad you got it done.

Cheers,

MB

Or worse yet, security Torx screws with the pin in the middle (thank you, Compaq).

No sh!@t ! How about NO screws of any type. If you require entry into the
box, throw it on the floor. Look mom, no tools needed !!!

I haven't seen any laptops like that, but I have seen hand-held devices and other smaller electronics that were
snap-together and screwless. A short length of .015" shim stock ground to a taper on one end usually worked well for
them :-) (And so did the "bounce it on the floor" method.)

I have this same computer. I had to change mine too. It IS under the
keyboard. You have to buy a special battery wiht a plug on it. I got
mine on Ebay. It's yellow.... I had a hard time finding it too, but
eventually did it.

The "OP" Vanguard is referring to, is from "richard2 @ none.com".
The post was made 24 Mar 2012. It's unlikely richard2 is
sitting at his keyboard, still waiting for an answer. Only
one of the regulars would still be at their keyboard.

http://al.howardknight.net/msgid.cgi...0%404ax.com%3E

casey.o is not the OP of the thread. richard2 is.

I can see the entire thread (the headers), because Thunderbird
does not remove the old headers. As long as I was pulling
articles the entire time, I can see all the articles for
the group. I can see stuff back to Jan 2009 right now
(just the headers, not the message bodies).
Using the howardknight site, I can look up a post from 2009,
using the MID. You can find the MID value, by looking at
the header of the message sent by ". That's
how I got the pointer to the item stored on howardknight.
My Eternal-September server doesn't go back two years, but
as long as Thunderbird remembers the MID value, I can
find the originating article. As shown in that example.

Google Groups used to support "search by MID", but I think
the search page is not very useful any more. It might have
been this page, with search by MID on it, but the page
is redirected now, to a useless page. So it's howardknight
to the rescue, instead.

http://groups.google.com/advanced_search?q=&

HowardKnight truncates messages to around 2KB or so, as a means
to prevent movie piracy by saving multi-part uploads people
put on binary groups. This means HowardKnight is no longer
a "verbatim" archive, with respect to things we search for
by MID. If the message you look up, happens to be a long one,
the end of the message could go missing. Apparently the
server code is not smart enough to just smack things with
particular encodings. Truncating was a quick fix for them,
to avoid excessive web searches and traffic.
