Re:[transmonde] Trying to open the case.
- Hi Bill,
Thanks for the reply and pointer to the VoyForums site. On my Vivante SE, the CMOS battery is not easily accessible. A pretty stupid design if you ask me. Oh well...
P.S. Too bad this group is almost dead. It seems as if the number of active participants can be counted on one hand.

I don't know if your machine is the same, but on my Vivante XL the
CMOS battery is inside one of the removable cover plates on the
bottom of the computer. Only two screws to remove and the battery
just pops out like in a watch. Battery is a CR1220 - available at
WalMart in the jewelry department for $3.00.
I also believe that there is a set of instructions on disassembling
the SE on a different Transmonde web site - it's called VoyForums.
The web address is www.voy.com/912/
Hope this helps, Bill

still in use is dwindling. My Vivante SE has worked
well for 4 years and has beaten the average life span
for a daily use (and very mobile) laptop. It was well
worth the money I paid for it. I expect that I will
soon make one final post when I ask if anyone is
interested in the thing for parts.

onto the 'net and printing out a few papers, it works just fine.
