The C610 doesn't use a standard CR2032 CMOS Battery. Is uses Dell Part Number 5D566 7.2 volt Reserve Battery under the keyboard. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latc610/sm_en/rsrvbatt.htm#1000202

I want to that how i reset my recovery password and where the actual location of CMOS Battery?


In computing, BIOS (basic input output settings) refers to the information stored regarding a computer's hardware configuration, the system date and time and any applied password. This information is known as the BIOS or CMOS settings--the BIOS is stored on a small battery-powered semiconductor chip known as the CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor). Having a CMOS or BIOS password restricts unauthorized changes to the system's hardware configuration and, in some computers, may even be required for booting. A lost password may be reset by removing the CMOS battery, clearing the motherboard jumper or using a software-based password cracker.

Removing CMOS Battery
1. Shut down the laptop and unplug its power cord from the wall outlet. Remove the battery cover under the laptop and gently raise the battery from its dock. Unplug any peripheral devices with a live power source connected to the laptop, such as a modem or printer.

2. Locate and remove the CMOS battery. Refer to your user manual or visit the manufacturer's website for your laptop's architecture. Follow manufacturer recommended procedure to access and remove the CMOS battery. Depending on make and model, this procedure may be more involved for some laptops and not others. The CMOS battery is a flat circular shape and resembles a watch battery.

3. Wait 30 minutes and then put the battery back in. This will erase all information stored in BIOS. Assemble the laptop, making sure you leave no loose connections. Power up the laptop and press "F1" when you get the "CMOS cheksum error" message. Type in a new password.

Clearing CMOS Jumper
1.Turn off the laptop and access the motherboard following recommended procedures.
2.Locate the jumper in the motherboard. If you do not have your motherboard documentation, locate a single jumper near the CMOS battery. In some laptops, the jumper may also be labeled in the motherboard. Put the jumper setting to "Clear" and reassemble the laptop.
3.Turn on the computer and hit "F1" when the "CMOS checksum error" message is displayed. Navigate through the BIOS settings interface to load default settings and apply a new password.

Using Password Remover
1.Download a software-based BIOS password cracker. There are numerous free programs able to recover or delete CMOS or BIOS passwords from virtually all motherboard brands. Download the file from a trusted source and save it to the desktop.
2.Burn the installed file to a CD using image burner software. Insert the CD and access the password remover tool.
3.Note the password or use the program to set a new password.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

How can i remove acer emachine netbook bios password?


Do you know the bios password???? If you do, you can go into the bios menu and make changes there by entering the password, and then just enter blank when asked for new password/and confirmation. If you don't know the password, what you need to do is reset the bios to oringinal default setting. In this step, you will need to take your netbook apart by unscrewing the screws on the back of the laptop and disembling the netbook. You will need to locate the cmos battery, in this case is about the size of a dime, or nickel. You will need to take this battery out for at least 15sec, and reinserting it back. Put your laptop back togheter and startup the netbook. It will prompt you of a fail cmos, and load default is loaded. You should be good to go.

Reset power on password jumper


Motherboard Jumpers:
Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.
Here's an example of a Supermicro PIIISEA motherboard.
piiisea_jump.jpgAs you can see from the picture, we have added two small red arrows. The arrow to the left denotes the location of the "Clear CMOS" jumpers, while the red arrow to the right denotes the location of the CMOS battery.
Here are the procedures if the jumpers are present on the motherboard:
  • Locate, if possible, the instruction booklet for your motherboard. If you cannot locate the booklet, then user the motherboard references on this site to locate the manufacturer and see if a manual is available there. You may also want to closely examine the motherboard itself.
  • Shut down your computer and disconnect the power plug.
  • Now identify where the jumpers are located, then check the present pin location and the location of the jumper on those pins to determine their default location. As an example, the default location on the above motherboard is to have the jumper across pins #1 and #2. Write it down!
  • Next, move the jumpers from the their default location (Example: from across pins #1 and #2 as above) and then place the jumper across pins #2 and #3.
  • Leave the jumper in place for 20 to 30 seconds and then return it to its default location.
  • Now plug the power cord back in and restart the computer.
  • When the computer begins it's startup (boot) process, tap the DEL, F10 or F1 key, (whichever is appropriate for your computer) to get into the Bios/CMOS setup. If you need more detailed information as to how to get to the Bios/CMOS setup, follow this link. Bios Basics
  • Once into the Bios/CMOS setup, look for a section or area to set the Bios/CMOS to its default settings. This will return the motherboard to either its basic or optimum settings depending upon the motherboard manufacturers settings. You will then need to verify certain settings, such a CPU and memory as well as hard drive type and size recognition. If you need more information regarding these settings, follow either of these links: For an AMI Bios or for an Award Bios.
  • After making any final adjustments, save your settings and restart the computer. The Bios password should be gone and the Bios set to its optimum settings.
If the "Clear CMOS" jumpers are not present or not available:
The procedures for clearing a Bios/CMOS without jumpers is essentially the same as those given above when they are present, it just takes a little more effort.
  • Shut down the computer and disconnect the power plug.
  • Locate, if possible, the instruction booklet for your motherboard. If you cannot locate the booklet, then use the motherboard references on this site to locate the manufacturer and see if a manual is available there. You may also want to closely examine the motherboard itself.
  • Now identify where the battery is located on the motherboard. It will be approximately 1/2 inch in diameter.
  • Normally these batteries are held into place with one or more small clips over the face of the battery. Carefully lift the battery out of its socket and set it aside. Note: Some batteries are actually soldered to the motherboard, so take that into consideration and be careful.
  • Leave the battery our of the computer for about 20 to 30 minutes and then return it to its socket.
  • Now plug the power cord back in and restart the computer.
  • When the computer begins it's startup (boot) process, tap the DEL, F10 or F1 key, (whichever is appropriate for your computer) to get into the Bios/CMOS setup. If you need more detailed information as to how to get to the Bios/CMOS setup, follow this link. Bios Basics

I FORGOTT THE BIOS PASWORD FOR MY NX9010 HP . WHAT CAN I DO?


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.



B. By Using Software:


I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

My toshiba equium just wont except the main password, cant reboot..cant get into bios


At this time you need to cleat the BIOS password first so that you can get into BIOS. To cleat the BIOS password you need to open your laptop you just remove the battery first. Remove the screw and open the back cover. Locate the CMOS battery, all password are stored in CMOS memory.

Remove the CMOS battery to clear the stored BIOS password, Or you can remove also the CMOS jamper near the CMOS battery and turn on the unit with in 10 second and turn off. Reinsert the jamper. Now the BIOS password are already clear you can get now in BIOS to change some settings. Good luck

Please help me reset my bios password on acer travelmate 2410


First you need to remove the laptop battery at the back side. Find some screw there and remove it locate the CMOS battery and jamper.

The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is.

If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

How do I replace a dead cmos on acer 4520LCi travelmate laptop? The laptop no longer keeps track of system time when shut off completely. Can you tell me the exact location of the cmos so I can be able to...


Hi,

what you replace is not the CMOS, but the CMOS battery.

On an ACER from those years the CMOS battery looks like a coin, or a coin wrapped in plastic and connected to the motherboard.

On most models from same series the battery is located on the lower side of the motherboard, like on picture below:

On some model the battery may be located underneath the keyboard.

Here disassembly instructions for a similar model.

Reset bios password


You need to locate the Cmos battery, not the jumpers, this is not a desktop.

Locate the Cmos battery, disconnect the battery for ten seconds, and Bios will reset to factory default.
