Fun resetting my CMOS

1 hour before I was scheduled to give a demo of Second Life, the CMOS in my laptop got corrupted and prevented me from booting. Here I am ripping my laptop apart to yank the CMOS battery and temporary reverse polarity to reset the memory. Worked like a charm.


I love it when things like this pressure. :P
