Their is a watch battery. i actually did open up that same laptop. you need to open one of the doors on the bottom (cant tell you witch one at the moment) and the watch battery is under there. you need to remove that battery (probably cr23## or something) for they say 15 mins. longer wont hurt. that battery is in there you just need to find it. it will clear the cmos.
If you can not get this to work you can call this number (800)624-9896. that is dells tech support
they will request a service tag and express service code. which will be found on the bottom of the laptop.
if you arent the original owner you can have the registration of the laptop switced. but you will need to register as the new owner you can do this by filling out the Transfer of Ownership from Dell's web site.
i know its not quick, but it will be easy.
