My Toshiba Satellite laptop has this problem. But, there's a catch: I'm pretty computer illiterate and don't know how to fix it. [more inside]

Mrs. mysterious1der's laptop (M55-S331) won't keep time accurately. I've torn apart and repaired (board swaps, not actual board level repair) dozens of Dell laptops, but this is my first Toshiba. Lo and behold, the CMOS battery is soldered to the motherboard. Do I either have to unsolder it and resolder a new one, or get a new motherboard? [more inside]

So I've upgraded to Vista, for better or for worse. I've got a Toshiba Satellite A105-S361, though, and the "hot, new" Aero Glass feature isn't working. Am I wasting my time trying to enable this and/or is my computer even capable of rendering Aero? I've checked everywhere, to no avail.
What is making this Windows ME laptop freeze every time you plug in the ethernet and the Windows Shell runs?
I consider myself a reasonably good computer person, so the fact that I'm having this problem angers me. I'm working on a laptop for a friend -- a Toshiba Satellite 1805-S253 -- that runs Windows ME. When she gave it to me, it had a trivial problem with the Content Advisor, which I fixed; it also ran fine on a network. Now, 28 critical updates later, it runs fine off the network (which is the way she uses it), but the minute you plug a network cable into its built-in ethernet port and then try to run anything which uses the Windows Shell (e.g., Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, any open/save dialog box), it freezes solid, and you have to manually quit the Explorer process in order to recover it. I've tried everything -- deleted all the clients in the Network control panel, plugged it into three different Ethernet switches, updated every single driver and/or BIOS that I could, prayed to the Holy Gods Of Built-In Hardware -- to no avail. Any ideas?
How do I disassemble my Toshiba Satellite 1110? I can't find the hidden screws or clips. (General laptop-disassembly tips and tricks also appreciated. I gotta epoxy the case back together before I start losing bits!)
