    Thank you VERY much for the N81Vp disassembly guide!!! I’ve been looking for this for a long time.

    I need to replace the RTC battery on my N81Vp and from your photos I think I now see where the battery (CR2032?) is located.

    Is there any way to replace the RTC battery without completely removing the main board? I’ve been having problems with the main board “THRM” temp sensor and also have a weak or dead RTC battery. I wanted to make sure a new battery did not solve the “No Data” temp sensor problem before replacing the whole motherboard or junking the N81Vp. The temp sensor will occasionally go to “FATAL” and put the notebook into hibernation. Removing main battery & discharging CMOS seems to always reset the sensor to “No Data”, with fan running continuously at high speed.

    Thank you for any advice you can give me but if not, thanks again for this disassembly guide!!!
