Ok laptops are extremely trickey to pull apart they have screws all over the place and hidden under things,just above the keyboard there is a panel with the power button etc, under the panel are the screws to remove the keyboard. to remove the panel it will simply pry off with a screw driver or there may be screws on the back at the bottom of the screen, i couldn't bring up a reliable pic of your laptop so this info may be useless if it is configured differently if so sorry

    I have a CL51-15 too. I'm hunting for the CMOS battery or BIOS jumper so I can reset the stupid BIOS password someone set up.

    I've gotten the keyboard out, but still haven't found the battery or jumper.

    In case you still want to take your keyboard out, read on,,,

    To take out keyboard 2 things must be done first.
    1. Remove the plasic on the lower portion of the front of the LCD display. Behind 2 little round black stickers on either side of the bottom of the screen are 2 screws. Take these stickers off and remove the screws. Pry away the bottom portion of the plastic surrounding the screen. the top portion of the screen plastic can stay attached. This needs to be done so the next step can be done.
    2. Remnove the plastic covering the switches

Take these stickers off and remove the screws. Pry away the bottom portion of the plastic surrounding the screen. the top portion of the screen plastic can stay attached. This needs to be done so the next step can be done.

2. Remnove the plastic covering the switches & LEDs area between the keyboard and the screen. This plastic goes from side to side of the computer. With a flat screwdriver pry up each end of this piece and then carefully keep prying up from each end toward the center until this come out entirely. Note that the bottom of the display plastic would have been in the way if you hadn't pried it up in step 1.


Now, you're ready to remove the keyboard. There are two screws exposed when you remove the plastic in step 2. Remove these screws and the keyboard will readily come out. You can keep it flipped up out of the way with the cable attached or detach the keyboard cable connector at the computer end and remove the keyboard entirely.


So, now you can clearly see under the keyboard and there

    So, now you can clearly see under the keyboard and there's no battery and no jumper. I removed the little covers in 3 more places here searching for the battery / jumper but not under any of these either.



    I want to light this thing on fire and put it out with an axe! :-)



    Good luck!

Cmos battery


Replace an Acer Extensa CMOS Battery
CMOS batteries allow you to store basic settings on your laptop.
If you notice certain features on your computer do not operate correctly, such as the computer clock, you may have to replace your CMOS battery.
This battery sits on the interior portion of your machine and measures about the size of a dime.
If you have a screw driver and know how to work with your hands, you can replace the CMOS battery on your Acer Extensa computer.

Open the screen of your laptop until you can view your keyboard clearly.
Find the bar that consists of plastic on the upper portion of your keyboard.
Place your screwdriver on one end of this bar and slowly ease it up until you can grab its edge with your finger.


Pull the opposite side of the bar in the upward direction with your screwdriver.
Then, ease out the whole bar.

Take out the screws on the side portion of your keyboard.
Pull your laptop keyboard upward and put it on a soft surface such as a bed or pillow.

Take out the four screws from the steel plate, which covers the motherboard of your computer, and take off this plate.
This allows you to view the CMOS battery, which sits on the lower right portion of your motherboard.

Pull the CMOS battery up from the motherboard and take it off.
Insert a new CMOS battery, which you can buy at a local computer store.
Put the parts of your computer back in the same manner as you took them off.

Where is the cmos battery located in the computer??????????


#1
Turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Remove the battery from its compartment on the bottom of the computer. Turn the laptop over and remove the screws holding the DVD drive in place and pull out the DVD drive.
#2
Remove the remaining screws on the bottom of the computer. These screws secure the wireless card cover, the memory card cover and the modem card cover. Then remove all of the plastic covers. Remove the wireless card by sliding it gently out.
#3
Remove the corner screws on the bottom of the laptop securing the bottom housing. Remove the housing by pulling it away from the laptop. Remove any remaining, exposed screws on the bottom of the computer.
#4
Turn the laptop over and remove the thin plastic strip that runs along the border of the keyboard with your fingernails. If your fingernails aren't long enough, a plastic card will work as well.
#5
Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard securing it to the computer. Remove the keyboard.
#6
Remove all of the exposed screws where the keyboard used to sit. These screws secure the top housing to the computer. Remove the housing, exposing the motherboard.
#7
Locate the CMOS battery. It is a small battery about the size and shape of a coin and should be easily visible on the board. Depending on the model of Toshiba you are working on, the CMOS battery will either be secured with a clip or connected to the board by two small cables. Either way, they are easily removable.
#8
Disconnect the battery by pulling gently away from the cables or by popping the clip out. Your CMOS battery can now be removed

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.

Dell C610 battery cmos/bios


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.

Failing Laptop Cmos battery and need bigger HD


As a general rule of thumb , the CMOS battery can be found underneath the keyboard. The keyboard can generally be removed by inserting a screwdriver into the thing gap at each side at the top and then gently lifting the meyboard up. Be careful with the cables connecting the keyboard to the motherboard though!

I cannot find a removal guide for the hard drive. However , look for a slot or cover on the side of the laptop , similar in size to your cd drive. Then turn the laptop up side down and unscrew one of the screws thats somewhere near the slot or cover , remove the cover and slide the drive out, If you can get the cover off but not get the drive to slide out , try unscrewing another screw as most laptops have a few screws holding the cover on and another to release the drive.

Dell INSPIRON 6400 locked


You will have to go into the laptop I am affraid.
If you are not familiar with the internals of laptops I would advise you take it to a laptop service centre near you.
If you are confident then read on..
Remove the battery and mains power from the laptop.
Remove the plastic strip between the keyboard and the bottom of the screen (where the model number is printed)
Pop the keyboard out (careful of the connector ribbon)
Under the keyboard there is a metal cover. Remove that (keep the screws with it)
Under there if you look closely at the motherboard you will find a marking of CMOS with 2 solder pads side by side right next to it.
Press something metal between the 2 pads for a few seconds.
Before you put it all back together, just reconnect the power button panel, and use mains power to try and start the laptop. If all is well then the cmos will be clear and the password will be gone.
Reassemble..

Failing that (or instead of that), remove all power to the laptop, and disconnect the cmos battery for 10 seconds. The cmos battery will look like a blob of plastic that has 2 wires going to a connector. It will be very small (the connector)

SONY VAIO CMOS BATTERY LOCATION


Correction...

The CMOS battery is located under the system board, and is not accessible from under the keyboard.

The keyboard has to be removed in order to change the CMOS batter, (another reason why I don't like Sony laptops.)

Below is the batter I just pulled from a user's VGN-FS660\W 892cbd5.jpg
