SOURCE: dell 5100 cmos battery replacement

The CMOS battery most likely is a button battery, probably a CR2032 lithium battery. The battery could be located on the bottom of the laptop behind one of the panels or under the keyboard. There is no MOP, when you remove the battery it may default to the factory defaults (depends how long the battery has been removed) and you need to go into the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time etc.

SOURCE: What about this Dell Vostro 1000 battery

the seller looks ok ...the things to look for is first to be refurbished ,,second try to buy it not formated and do it yourself by charging it for about 12 hours ..and completely empty it for a few times...than see that for the same model of laptop can be more than one model of battery ..different on tha size and so with charge life time bigger or smaller....I will go for a midle size if available ...and use two of them increse independence from the sourse..a much to big one might be inconvenient ...and of course one original is to be prefered on a copy or one that just fits...
the UK site is an excelent choice ...stay away from chinese stuff and cheap deals..

  • Hello misdept, if by chance you didn't 'create a "Supervisor Password" to prevent anyone from changing the configurations in the BIOS / CMOS Setup? than we are 'OK!' Lets just say [No] for now. Bootup / Start the computer, and follow these steps: 1. When you hear the computer start-up, there will be a message that flashes very quickly at the bottom of the screen, it will read; Press F2 or F12 or on other "Computers, the 'Key Sequence may be [F11]..." The area of your attention will be [F2] Key at the top of the keyboard. The F2 Key will open the CMOS / BIOS Setup. paul7of9_15.jpg 2. Once this screen appear, you will see a 'Listing" of different set-ups. There will be instructions in the [right] Help ? area. You be using the "Arrow Keys" to (Select and Choose Items). In the first screen, there will be on the (right of the screen). 3. Set Supervisor Password = This is the "Password Setting that will prevent anyone from getting into without authorization this area that you are in now, to "Change or Configure" CMOS or BIOS setting. 4. Set User Password = This Password is use for "Logins / User Accounts... You want to "Reset or Change the Supervisor Password. Do so, and to finish; remember to use the [F10 Key] to 'Save the Changes.' Thanks for using Fix' Ya, and I hope this fix it, paul7of9

My vostro beeps 5 times continously from startup till on windows. pls help out

Hi Femi,

5 beeps on a Vostro generally means that the internal CMOS battery (the one responsible for your laptop keeping its time etc) has failed and needs to be replaced. You're best taking the laptop to a local computer shop to get the CMOS battery swapped out.

Many thanks,

Forgot bios password for vostro 1520

Well, you can remove the battery and replace it and then start the computer up, but I think the Vostro may have a set of jumpers that say CMOS CLR. You move the jumper to the CLR side and then back to clear the CMOS

I forgot my bios password and i have a dell vostro 1015

Disconnect the battery, unplug it, then open it up. There should be a small round battery called the CMOS battery somewhere in there. Pull that out. Then plug your computer in and boot it up without the CMOS battery. It should say password disabled. Turn it off, disconnect it, put it back together, and you're good to go.

Is there a patch to fix the clock error? my vostro does not keep time when shut down

Date & Time are kept by RTC (Real Time Clock) CMOS Battery, which is usually a coin-cell battery on the motherboad.
As the RTC of your system is dead, it can not keep time.
Therefore, RTC (CMOS Battery) is required to be replaced with a new one to fix the issue.
Refer here for more information/ disassembly guide.

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps! Dont forget to rate the solution!!
