RTC battery is located underneath the palmrest - to the left of the touchpad - they don't usually die, as they are Lion rechargeables. Unless your Satellite 1410 is losing date and time every time it is turned off, you probably don't need to replace it. But if you need to replace it, make darn sure that you replace it with a rechargeable and nothing else.
If you need to get to it, you'll need to remove the keyboard, then the square aluminum bracket above the heatsink, then get to the bottom, remove all the F6 and F26 screws, then you must make sure to disconnect the WiFi antennas. After that, the top case (including the palmrest) will unsnap from the bottom case and you'll be able to see the RTC battery.
Are you the one who set up the BIOS password? If not, unfortunately, there's no way for us to retrieved the password. The only way you can reset the password to default settings is to reseat the CMOS battery on the motherboard, its a circular thing that looks like a battery of a watch,sometimes a pin hold it, just detached it then wait for at least 30 minutes then connect it back again,
Note: Before you reseat the CMOS battery,make sure that everything is unplugged on the computer, like AC adapter,battery and all external devices...
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
