Here is the link to removing the reserve battery. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsM60/SM_En/reserve.htm#1123661
However, if you are trying to bypass a BIOS or HDD password removing the battery will have no effect. Those can only be removed by tech support or a hardware replacement.

SOURCE: dell precision m60 press the power button the

You could have a bad peice of memory or a bad memory slot. Pull the memory out and try one peice at a time in each of the two slots. If you only have 1 peice you will need to either borrow a peice of the same memory or buy it. You also could have a shorted battery so pull the battery out if the ram is ok and try to boot. Another idea is the cd rom may have a problem so pull it if the ram and battery are ok. After doing all this if the system will still not boot the motherboard must have a short and needs replacement. This model also had an issue with the power board where the power button is. The connector on the motherboard was poorly designed and very sloppy. Over time it gets worn and causes a similar issue. The temporary cure is to press very hard on the power button to see if it will boot and then leave it running. You can also put pressure on the underneath side around the docking port and press the power button. This issue however requires a new motherboard. The M60 is almost the same as the D800 infact most parts are interchangeable. You could switch out the motherboard to a D800. I refurbish the D600 AND D800'S daily so I am fimilar to this issue. Let me know how you make out. Phil pmgibs1@verizon.net

SOURCE: how to reset Dell Precision

To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.
