I was unable to locate your specific laptop this might ge you some in sight in what to look for and how to remove cmos battery remember some cmos batteries are soldered in RTC battery replacement procedure on Compaq HP Mini 110 netbook & clear CMOShttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_cxAireIsw
1.Prepare the computer for disassembly (refer to Section 6.3, “Preparing the Computer for Disassembly,” for more information). 2.Remove the cmos battery (refer to Section 6.24, “System Board,” for more information on removing and replacing the RTC battery).
As you know CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip (stores BIOS) powered by the CMOS battery you refer to, inside computers that stores information such as the system time and system settings for your computer.
I have heard of issues when the CMOS battery is low (1.3 it should have failed normally by now), from boot inc other issues, so id say yes possible.
The thing is any machine at POST boot is only as powerful and reliant as its Bios, which has given me another thought. Some companies when a system boots have the CMOS ROM copied to RAM as ram is faster, I cant honestly say if HP do this, was just a thought.
hope helps a little, let me know if i can be of further help
Removing CMOS battery resets BIOS password. CMOS battery is located right beneath the keyboard. Turn laptop upside down and unscrew the topmost layer at the centre, beneath keyboard. U shud see CMOS battery silver. REmove, hold for abut 1min, reinsert, powerup ang enjoy!!1
The cmos on the Pavilion is going to be in one of three places, and will be one of two styles of battery. The cmos style will be either a large watch type battery about the size of a nickle located in a slot on the mother board, or in a yellow or greenish pouch with two wires leading to a connector, located under a cover on the bottom of the machine, or under the keyboard.
Good day, Cyko! Here is what microsoft has to say about that: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/hwandprograms/monitors.mspx In reading through this, you'll note that they suggest that some docking devices, or a usb adapter for monitors may allow you to run multiple monitors.
