I do feel quite silly asking this, however, this was the first time I have ever taken a laptop apart..so be nice! I have a Compaq C62 laptop that is 5 or 6 years old. I had to replace the original battery a few years ago, other than that, I've not have many problems with it. I would shut it down or hibernate and the fan would just keep running - probably because the new battery was a heavy duty one and made things even hotter? I tried to boot it up about a week ago and got nothing but the black screen, caps lock flashing and the wi-fi led lit up constantly. I tried everything but getting the hair dryer out and heating it back up Then I read where the CMOS battery could interfere with the BIOS even getting started. Since it had never been replaced, I figured "How hard can it be to replace a battery?" Hahaha Lesson learned!!
I've got it torn down completely....except for 2 things that need to be detached from the MB....but they are different than the other connections...the kind that have a lip that flips up to release the ribbon. I know that one of them is wired to the touchpad and the other I am not positive....it may connect to the fan? I really want to get this thing put back together....but can't get the MB out without detaching these last 2 things. Hope the pics help....thanks for the help!!
