I bought a used Toughbook CF-45 from the original owner (with paperwork, lest anyone go "sure! uh-huh...").
She retired it from use as an insurance agent 4 years ago, and can remember neither the Admin nor the BIOS password her son placed on it at that time.
I realize this is an old, slow laptop, and paid accordingly.
I can't find the CMOS battery, although I've taken off everything I can get to without major surgery. Not apparent under keyboard, or in any of the bottom compartments once battery & HDD are removed.
Anyone have a suggestion besides send it to PANASONIC for over $100+ shipping? (Please, no "expensive boat anchor" or doorstop comments).
Thanks in advance!
