Depends which laptop. some laptops have just a panel under it and you can access it from there, but most laptops need the whole to be ripped in parts before you can access it.

Wheres the cmos battery on an acer aspire one 722

How to clear a cmos password on a Gateway T1625 Laptop

This picture is an actual replacement system board for the Gateway
T-1625 notebook. If you look at the top of the picture you will see the cmos battery location. You will need to remove the hard drive access panel which will allow you to see the battery location. You will need to remove at least 3/4 of the screws on the outside edges of the bottom of the laptop including two screws in the laptop battery location which are of different size than the rest. Set those two aside from the others. You do not need to remove the screw in the center of the laptop with the letter K next to it that is a keyboard release screw. Also remove the two screws located next to the removable wireless network module which is located next to the hard drive. Once you have removed the screws very carefully seperate the laptop casing starting from the middle of the cmos battery location and working you way out to the edges. You do not have to completely take this cover off you only need an 1/2 of an inch of space to work in. I used a hard piece of 1/2 inch plastic to wedge in the center to keep the cover open enough to work in, Once you remove the battery leave it out for a few mins then replace it and put your laptop back together in the reverse order. Your cmos will need to have it's date and time reset when you first turn it back on. Your cmos password will now be removed.

Wheres the cmos jumper in dell inspiron e1405?

All you need to do is remove the cmos battery and main battery, short across the positive and negitive terminals where the cmos battery was, that will reset to factory default, however if you are hoping to remove a bios password this will not work no matter how long it is without power. The information is stored on a epprom chip.

Dell c610 will not turn on

Forgeet the CMOS battery, worthless exercise. Most likely from what you describe it is a bad motherboard, and on a system that old I'd say replace not repair. If you want to fix it, mothebroards are $50 to 100 for that model on EBay
