I have an IBM 770x that won't start because of the 173 163 problem. So I've got a replacement battery, but I can't figure out how to get the old one out. So who's done this before?

Thank you.

I've never taken that particular laptop apart, but I've taken a lot of them apart, they're all different.

I'd see if you can find some detailed instructions before you start taking screws out, because taking the wrong ones out can be a PITA! Don't ask me how I know this. :D:D:D

Hell, that's an easy one! I put one in a laptop that I had to completely disassemble, then solder the battery to the MB and assemble it again! This one looks like it was designed to be replaced. :D:D:D

Thank you.

You are welcome. Usually replacing a laptop CMOS battery is a pain like johnwill said. It looks like someone at IBM was on the ball when they designed this. :)
