    I replaced the CMOS battery on this old Toshiba Satellite M35X-S161 and when putting everything back together noticed that the cable from the display to the motherboard has this black wire grouped with the display connector (see image) and not sure where it goes. It looks like some type of a ground perhaps. Does anyone know where it goes? Thanks.

    It's definitely supposed to be screwed down in some fashion, possible at the same time your putting the face plate or something back on. It should be fairly obvious where it goes since it has only so far it can reach from there. So look carefully for a screw hole that is within it's reach and then try to figure out how to get it in the right position if it's meant to be squeezed between the top and bottom portions when remounting the top section. Those type of connections are either removed manually by unscrewing them (which you would certainly remember doing) or are connected via re-assembly by a screw you removed and didn't know that ground was there beneath it.
