Hi,

Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Code:
The firmware has detected that a CMOS battery failure occurred. Press <F1> to continue.
Monitor is totally black, nothing whatsoever. However, the machine is working, I can head everything, Fan, HDD, etc.

If I connect the laptop to an external monitor, I do see the above message. That is the only way I can 'see' something as of now.

Pressing F1 does nothing at all. There is no further point after this message. The machine sits there doing nothing.

Things I have tried:

  1. Used Air-Blower to clean the machine.
  2. Bought new battery and changed it already.
  3. Took the RAMs out, turned the machine on - nothing - and put them back in.
  4. Took the HDD out, turned the machine on - nothing - and put them back in.
  5. Tried to search for that message but all the results are useless.


Nothing from the above steps changed anything yet.
Any idea how to solve this?!

Thanks in advance!
