Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
WHERE IS CMOS BATTERY LOCATED
Should be one of two places on the Dells. Look under the memory cover, if not under the keyboard. If you still can't find it, go to Dell's support site and pull a system diagram. If you haven't already, it's very helpful to know what the bat looks like. Dell uses a few different types.

underneath the keyboard, pull the top plastic line cover (the one covering the power button) then two screws and pull it off carefully, the ribbon connection will pull out pretty easy but be carefull not to twist it.
