Question about Dell C600 (002UH) Motherboard
I tried to remove bios password by removing cmos battery but couldnt found the motherboard plz help me out!
Just want to now, do you mean you can't find the battery on the board or removing the battery didn't work?
If its the battery, it is usually a round flat coin like shinny thing on the board with a plus sign on it (like the batteries used on some watches), although there are some very old boards that use a different type of battery which looks like capacitors or small drum like things (but these type of batteries are not used on modern board designs anymore). If you really can't find the battery on your board, I suggest you check its documentation, you can try downloaing it from the motherboard's manufacturer website.
If you mean that removing the battery didn't work, it means that your board's CMOS has the capability to hold a charge to save the settings for a longer period of time, if your board has a CMOS reset jumper, I suggest that you use that instead, you will usually find it near the battery or BIOS chip. There are some PC manufacturers (especially branded ones) that implement a different method of BIOS reset so I suggest that you consult the PC manufacturer on how to do it (e.g. for DELL PC's you remove the CMOS jumper, power on the unit for a few seconds, power off, return the CMOS reset jumper again). Hope this helps.
Cheers and best regards,
