BIOS Battery Where is the BIOS Battery located, and what battery does it use ? I have looked under all underside covers (except the Wi-Fi cover that requires a special anti-tamper T-socket to remove 2 screws), and I also looked under the keyboard (as I was told thet the battery is under the keyboard), and I could not find it. I also searched the internet, and the manuals but I could not find any information. Thank you for yout help.

Re: BIOS Battery

After spending a couple of hours looking for the cmos battery I found it. It is located underneath the mouse keypad. To access it you must unscrew the front bottom of the laptop and be able to seperate to top and bottom portion of the laptop. On the right hand side you will see a pocket inside is the battery. I hope this helps.

I have a windows 8 gateway laptop(NE71B Series) and its seems as if my wifi switch is disable. Anyone with a bit of advice on how to resolve this problem would be very helpful.

Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts.
; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode.
; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area.
; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues.
Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.

Notes of caution:
; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep.
; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS.
; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.

Hi tariq,my wifi is not working,what i do

Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in from left to right. Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks. Choose a Wi-Fi network you want to connect to and select "Connect." Enter the password into the password text box if a password is required. If a password is not required, you will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network. Click "OK." Hope this helps.

The CMOS battery is located underneath the keyboard as well as one of the two memory slots. To get at it, you have to remove the “Hinge Cover” and then the Keyboard.
To remove the “Hinge Cover” (The hinge cover has the ON/OFF button) follow these steps:
1) Remove the battery and AC power.
2) In the battery bay you’ll see 2 small Phillips screws. Remove these screws.
3) Turn the laptop right side-up and using a small screwdriver, pry up on the notch on the right side of the hinge cover.
4) Lift and remove the hinge cover from the laptop.
5) Carefully lift the keyboard and gently slide it towards the LCD. (CAUTION! The keyboard is connected to the motherboard with a ribbon cable. Be careful not to damage the cable on the underside of the keyboard.)
6) The CMOS battery is located on the right side of a small white ribbon cable. It’s about the size of a small coin.
Hope this helps.

Clear power on password

Removing the Time of Year battery will clear the BIOS password. It is located on the underside of the n610c behind the panel covered by the Microsoft COA label. A small phillips screwdriver is required to remove the two screws on the panel. Carefully lift the BR1225 battery with a small flat blade screw driver.

After 10 minutes re-insert the battery. The BIOS Password should now be cleared, as well as other BIOS settings, the time and date.

Toshiba Satellite A15-S127

Some models make it easy, and some don't.

Look for a small removable cover on the bottom of the unit. The BIOS battery is under it.

If it doesn't have the cover, you'll have to tear it down and find the battery.

Once you do, take it out for a few hours. There may also be a jumper to reset the BIOS to factory defaults - just like on a desktop motherboard.

It varies on model.
