It is absolutely unnecessary to remove all of the screws as shown in the first image, in fact it would be counter productive to do so. One need only remove the screws that have a symbol of either the keyboard, the palm rest or both. The screw locations also have numeral indicators adjacent to them showing the specific size screw for that location.

Is there a quicker way to get to the CMOS battery interface? What alternate step could be used when using a CMOS AAA battery replacement instead? If possible, send me an email in response to this comment. Thanks in advance.
