Hi,
welcome to fixya.com,all u need to do is to open the cover of the laptop but make sure before that the laptop is turned off completely and then unscrew the case of the laptop from the bottom of the laptop open all he screws on the four corners and then take the cover out or open the keyboard first from the front of the laptop and then disconnect the keyboard cable from the moterboard and over there u can see the cmos battery like a roun shape all u need to do is just pull it up.


If you're computer is using a coin cell battery similar to the above example picture. Removing the battery is relatively simple. Simply use your fingers to grab on the edge of the battery and pull it up and out of the container holding it. Some motherboards have a clip holding the battery down. If your computer has this clip you may need to use one had to move the clip up and the other hand to pull the battery out.

And if it really helpful pls rate this solution

Dell d620 start up


Remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB, etc. Unplug, remove battery, reseat Memory Mods, plug in, reboot. If that fails, Do you have a Repair Disk or a Windows Disk? If so put it in and reboot . Have you upgraded any hardware or software? BIOS? CMOS battery?

My laptop is a dell 6400 inspiron, error code :"invalid configuration information- please run SETUP program"


Sounds like your CMOS battery on the system board is dead. This is a small dime sized battery that applies a small voltage to your BIOS settings so that when you remove or turn off power it retains it's settings.
Here is a link showing the coin cell battery:

How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing the CMOS Battery:
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Dell latitude d620 power on password can't remove


No need to short out any pins, shorting out pins allow you to reset the BIOS quickly. When you leave the BIOS/CMOS battery out overnight, this will reset the BIOS (you only need to leave the battery out for 1/2 + hour to do the same thing).
