P52s how to disable internal battery when it won't boot?

2019-04-21, 19:17 PM

The first time I replaced the SSD I was able to disable the internal battery in the BIOS config settings as per manual instructions.


However now my laptop just boots to a blank black screen, and I cannot get to config settings. How do I disable the internal battery?


Can I just go ahead and try to replace the SSD without doing so? Should I let it sit there on the black screen and drain power? (but the fan is really loud while it does that)

Pull off the bottom cover and before you swap the SSD, just unplug the battery
