How to disassemble my Qosmio x505-q830?
I would like to thoroughly clean my cooling fans and heat-sink. I have looked for a disassembly guide but cannot find one.
I would like to know how to disassemble my Qosmio x505-q830 just enough to access the heat-sink and fans. Also I tried disassembling it myself and failed.
While trying I dropped a screw from the battery bay into the case... any advice for getting that out

This is best example what can happen if you try to do it on your own.
Let’s be realistic now. Such complex and expensive machines should be disassembled by authorized personal only. They know how notebook must be disassembled and also how to avoid static discharge that can be dangerous for some electronic components.
Notebook case and all parts inside have many small plastic holders that can be broken if you don’t know where they are placed and exact way how to remove certain components. The disassembling procedure must be done following specific order that is described in maintenance manuals. Unfortunately this document is not for public usage and you will not be able to find it for download.
I strongly recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. It is better to pay for professional cleaning than to have some damaged parts that can be problematic to order and replace.
