Toshiba L850 CMOS Battery. My desktop clock keeps reverting back to 01.01.2010 at every restart - even when plugged in (and fully charged). Anti Virus hasn't picked up any issues. I was told I had to change the CMOS battery? Where do I find it? Thanks, Mick

The following video shows you how to service your laptop. It is fairly easy to replace once you remove the underside of the laptop. At at about 4:05 into the video after the laptop is flipped around in the lower left side of the laptop you should see a circular shinny object. That is the CMOS battery which is nothing more than a large lithium battery. You should be able to pop it out and go to your local RadioShack or other place that sells batteries to purchase a replacement.

Thanks Jaguarskx, The video did the trick. The access to the battery is shown at the 1:50 min mark after removing the 1st rear cover. It's hard to see on the video as the original battery I found was not shiny at all but as soon as that 1st cover is off, you can clip it out. It's a CR3032 disc battery. Thanks for pointing me straight. Mick
