Can someone tell me where the BIOS/CMOS battery is on a Solo 5300?
I'm pretty sure that I have to take the bottom of the notebook off but
if the battery is hidden away under the keyboard or something then I'm
not even going to try and get to it.

I'm looking at a friend's notebook that doesn't even do any boot up
beeps when you power it up and the screen remains blank.  Someone
suggested resetting the BIOS on it and I thought it would be worth a
shot as the notebook is useless as it is now.

Thanks for any help.
