In order to replace the battery You'll have to open up your notebook. I wouldn't recommend doing this if you have no previous experience in electronics and/or warranty is still active. If you still want to do it yourself, check this page and feel free to ask further questions.

Should be one of two places on the Dells. Look under the memory cover, if not under the keyboard. If you still can't find it, go to Dell's support site and pull a system diagram. If you haven't already, it's very helpful to know what the bat looks like. Dell uses a few different types.

The removal and replacement instructions can be found in the dell service documents available at support.dell.com. You can look it up by service tag or model number. But in short, the procedures are. 1. Remove the hard drive, then remove the keyboard. The keyboard is removed by removing the 5 screws on the bottom of the laptop marked with a "K" beside them. Then the keyboard can be removed. be careful not to tear the ribbon cable, and you do not have to remove the ribbon cable. The battery will be in the center of the opening, it will have a white plug that plugs into the keyboard. Contrary to Ayyasam's recomendations above, it is not necessary to remove "all" the screws on the bottom, nor is it necessary to remove the bottom of the laptop. It should be a 5 minute project. Again for any Dell item, the factory repair manuals are available online, and have exact instructions including pictures and diagrams.

Happy Computing

Can you check in your CMOS to see if you have the system password enabled? If so you may need to disable it.

This could mean two things: a problem with the cmos battery or the motherboard itself. Try to remove the cmos battery first and install. If not,then replace the cmos battery.

Hello i need the master password to clear cmos for laptop dell 1440 the service tag (s/n) is :4WMP7L1 thanks


I don't think there is such password.
You could contact dell and ask for the password if there is.
If not then best option is to remove and reseat the CMOS battery.
Contact Dell and tell them to provide you with the steps to remove and reseat the CMOS battery.
It will reset all the BIOS values.

How to remove a cmos battery is a dell inspiron


The CMOS battery is located underneath the keyboard of your Dell i5100.

If you're up to it, then try these simple steps:

- Open the lid to a 180 degree angle and using a very small Flat Screwdriver, pry the hinge cover on the right side. There's a small notch where you can pry it out.

- Check if the keyboard is being held by 2 screws. To loosen them, remove the battery and unscrew them from inside the battery bay.

- Carefully lift the keyboard in an angled position and check the ribbon or contact tape that connects the keyboard to the motherboard. Flip the keyboard towards you and see if you can reach the CMOS battery (usually covered by a blue plastic shield or protective cover. There's a pair of wire coming from it and the end is a small connector. You may remove the connector attached to the motherboard carefully to get the CMOS battery.

Cmos battery dead - needs to be replaced


Sounds like you need to change the CMOS battery, the time being wrong everytime you boot is a good sign but also it losing its settings in bios is also another sign
