    You lost your bios password or you windows login?



    The only reason to find the cmos battery is to remove a power on password, not a login.

I have the same computer and I done the very same thing. Do you have the recovery disks that it came with? If so you need to take a paper clip and open the drive by pushing the paper clip the small hole in the cd drive door.... If you cant get the drive door to open. Try running your disks from 1-7. This should at least get you to the BIOS. Set your Boot order to where the 1st line says from CD drive. Then you should be good to go to factory settings.

If that does not work if you have a 98, Ultiamte Boot Utility, Vista Bootable CD, They can boot your system and format your hard drive whatever you want to do. You will lose all your data but at least you will be able to use it.
