User configurable BIOS settings in laptops are very limited. It's not like a custom desktop system (non-OEM) that has dozens of settings available. And you don't need to remove the battery to clear the BIOS settings, all you need to do is "load defaults". You also can't remove the BIOS password by removing the CMOS battery - laptops are much more secure than desktops in that way. What exactly are you trying to do?

there's no battery in there, it removed the Maxell Ml 1220 button, because of system clock failure and testing resulted in cmos battery failure and i'm sure the config instructions did not hold in cmos ram for very long after rtc failure, so i need to know for sure if that is the right battery i removed and if not where on the laptop it's located.install new RTC then Will need to find setup files with firmware instructions before startup, .

That's why the access to toshiba's service manual might expidite things. BTW, no passwords were set on the lower levels.

thanks much for your reply, Jim

"i need to know for sure if that is the right battery i removed"

There's only one.

"i'm sure the config instructions did not hold in cmos ram"

Have you ever done this before? There are very few user configurable settings on an OEM machine - generally just the date, time, boot order, possibly shared memory for graphics, & very little else. If you have a basic understanding of these settings, you do not need the manual to reconfigure them. Removing the battery simply resets the BIOS settings to the factory defaults. Did you test the battery with a voltmeter?
