I was given this dead Toshiba Satellite L305 5919 laptop.  I was told
the prior owner probably ruined the mobo by trying to short out the
pins to bypass what he figured was the BIOS password.  The screen lit
up just fine before he did that, but would not boot up because it said
it required a password before it would do anything.

He read some helps on Google which suggested he short out two pins on
the exposed mobo behind the memory modules.  He said when he did that,
neither the screen nor the power up indicator leds would light up any
more.  Clearly he must have hit the wrong pins.

I thought I might try to dismantle the laptop and replace its mobo,
figuring he shorted it out.  But I have not done this before.  So,  I
tried to find a guide via Google to do this, but cannot find anything
except this one video that lacks any audio:

If I can't find a guide to take this thing apart, I think I should
pass.  But I thought I would ask if anyone knows of a guide -
preferably video.

Or perhaps you guys will tell me i shud just forget it.

Thank You

Peter
