Short Answer. You Can't remove that from the CMOS. You maybe able to disable the built in wireless from the CMOS but you will have to enter the CMOS configuration and follow the screen prompts to disable it. Unless you can re-write teh CMOS code you aren't going to take it out. To enter CMOS setup try pressing one of the following right after you start teh computer: F3, Del, Ins, Esc.

Locate the password (PSWD) and CMOS (RTC_RST) jumpers on the system board.

These jumpers are almost always located close to the CMOS battery or close the PSU power connector. If you open the unit up and remove the drives to see the board, it'll be either green or blue and it'll say PSWD right beside it. Remove it, power on wait for the Password Clear message....done.

Where is the CMOS battery on the HP G60-235DX? How do I remove it? Also, what type (model #) of CMOS battery does this laptop have?

Shut down your laptop and disconnect all power sources. Turn the laptop over and lay it face down.

Remove the screws that secure the hard drive cover and remove the cover. Take out the remaining screws that secure the hard drive to remove it.

Locate the RAM (random access memory) and wireless card cover. This is often located in the center of the laptop. Remove the retaining screws and take off the cover.

Remove the RAM module by spreading the retaining latches on each side. Tilt the RAM module at an angle and slide it out of its compartment.

Disconnect the cables from the wireless card and remove the screws that secure the wireless card to the motherboard. Remove the wireless card from the laptop.

Locate the CMOS battery. It is about the size of a coin and is secured by a clip. Unclip the CMOS battery and remove it from its compartment. Insert the new one and reassemble the laptop.

Here's a link to a video that shows you how to do it too. Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate.

How to reset bios password on e machines e627

I just got done resetting the password on the emachines e627. I ended up dissassembling the unit, desoldering the cmos battery from the motherboard, soldering it back on, and reassembling. It booted to windows after this. Repair time: 2 hours. It is a little difficult since I didn't have the repair manuals. The emachine connectors for the keyboard, touchpad, and wireless are fragile at best. After doing it once, I could do it again in 30 minutes.

Switching on wireless.

Normally there'll have a button or slide on top or side of laptop to turn on wireless. Or there's a wireless manager program sits on the tray and you can use to turn on the wireless as well (install one from manufacturer if it's not there). Finally, check the CMOS to see if wireless is enabled there. You can get to the CMOS by tapping DEL, F3 or F2 (depend on models and usually display momentarily on screen).

Location of CMOS Battery

The C-mos is green about a half inch wide and three inches long with two wires leading to a connector, and is generally located under the memory cover on the bottom of the machine. However, with this machine, it may be located under the bottom plastic cover in order to make room for the wireless card. It will be very close to the wireless card and memory.

So wait, its asking for a BIOS/CMOS password? If so, one thing you can try to do is remove the CMOS battery. The battery is about the size of a nickel and can be found on the bottom of your laptop. You'll have to unscrew a few things to find it. Once you do, take extreme precaution when touching anything inside the computer. I would recommend getting an Anti-Static Wrist strap (sold at Best Buy). Once you locate the CMOS battery, take it out. Keep it out for about a minute and then put it back in and close everything back up. When you do this it usually resets the BIOS/CMOS password if there is one. Hope this helps!
