Help with locating CMOS battery on Sony Vaio laptop

Google cmos battery on your board You will get pictures.
Hopefully it is readily accessible. Some can be a real PIA to get to.
If defaults do not help you see if you can use a hiren 15.2 disk to make changes to your video settings.

This is basically an OS issue. If nothing works yo may just have to wipe the drive and reload it from scratch.

How to clear a cmos password on a Gateway T1625 Laptop

This picture is an actual replacement system board for the Gateway
T-1625 notebook. If you look at the top of the picture you will see the cmos battery location. You will need to remove the hard drive access panel which will allow you to see the battery location. You will need to remove at least 3/4 of the screws on the outside edges of the bottom of the laptop including two screws in the laptop battery location which are of different size than the rest. Set those two aside from the others. You do not need to remove the screw in the center of the laptop with the letter K next to it that is a keyboard release screw. Also remove the two screws located next to the removable wireless network module which is located next to the hard drive. Once you have removed the screws very carefully seperate the laptop casing starting from the middle of the cmos battery location and working you way out to the edges. You do not have to completely take this cover off you only need an 1/2 of an inch of space to work in. I used a hard piece of 1/2 inch plastic to wedge in the center to keep the cover open enough to work in, Once you remove the battery leave it out for a few mins then replace it and put your laptop back together in the reverse order. Your cmos will need to have it's date and time reset when you first turn it back on. Your cmos password will now be removed.

Remove CMOS battery (Large button battery on the main board). Removing the CMOS battery like the one shown in the picture causes the system to lose all CMOS settings; including the password. To do this, locate and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for at least five minutes, then replace the battery and turn the computer back on

I need to locate the cmos battery so i can replace with new one

Open up your laptop. To do this, you will have to unscrew five or six screws that hold the laptop together. Turn the laptop off and unplug it. Then turn it over and find the screw holes in the bottom of the laptop. Unscrew them and then remove the bottom portion of the laptop
The hardest part of replacing a CMOS battery may be finding the CMOS itself. Usually it is located right in the center of the motherboard (main circuit board of the computer). Look carefully around the motherboard until you find the CMOS. It is round and silver. Typical CMOS batteries are smaller than a quarter and about a 1/4 inch thick. It might say 3V CRV032 on the battery as well.
To remove most CMOS batteries, you need to undo a small silver clasp that fits across the width of the battery. Just pull this clasp up and slide the battery out. Take note of how the battery was set into the clasp. The new battery needs to go in exactly the same way. Once you have the battery out, you can insert the new one. Just lift up the clasp and slide in the battery.

How to change cmos battery give me some video or pictures or something like that plz

Locate your CMOS battery
cmos.gifOpen the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard,verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed. Mostcomputers today use a coin cell CMOS battery as shown in the image tothe right.
If you are unable to locateyour CMOS battery you will need to refer to your motherboard orcomputer documentation and/or contact your computer manufacturer for additional assistance in locating it.
Obtain battery information
Unfortunately,most manufacturers will not list the exact type and model of your CMOSbattery; therefore, once you have located the battery, write down allinformation about the battery (Voltage, chemistry, wiring, andpackaging). If possible, remove the battery and take it to the locationyou plan on purchasing a new battery from.
Additional buying information can be found on our battery buying tips page.
Removing the battery
Caution: While in the computer make sure you're aware of Electro Static Discharge (ESD), your computer is off, and that you're properly grounding yourself. Especially before removing the battery.
Ifyou're computer is using a coin cell battery similar to the aboveexample picture. Removing the battery is relatively simple. Simply useyour fingers to grab on the edge of the battery and pull it up and outof the container holding it. Some motherboards have a clip holding thebattery down. If your computer has this clip you may need to use onehad to move the clip up and the other hand to pull the battery out.
Unfortunately,not all CMOS batteries are removable; some manufactures will only allowa replacement battery to be added. If you're not using a coin cellbattery and are not able to determine how to remove it refer to yourmotherboard or computer documentation and/or contact your computer manufacturer for additional assistance in removing the battery or how to insert a new replacement battery.
Userswith computers that do not have removable batteries only options toinstall a new battery will most likely also need to set a jumper when adding the new battery into their computer.
Insert the new battery
Once you have purchased a new battery, remove the old battery (as instructed above) and replace it with the new battery.
Enter CMOS values
Oncethe battery is replaced turn on the computer and enter all values backinto CMOS or set the values back to the default settings.

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...


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.
