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.

Inspiron 1000 doesn't save cmos settings


Hi

As you said that you haven't used the computer for long time then it could be the motherboard which has gone faulty not the HDD or DVD.
Try to use the new HDD with this old motherboard.
Or else you can seek help of Any Geek Squad or computer vendor.


In case if you have any more trouble do contact back in Fixya.
Thank you

Hi i am using Dell inspiron 1545 laptop. I unable toenter in Bios. how to break administrator password in dell inspiron 1545 laptop


there is no default password for that you will need to open up the laptop and remove the cmos battery inside to bring the bios back to its factory settings (without password). sometimes tho dell will add password , dell , or admin as a password. but thats usually for laptops and pcs they sell in bulk to businesses
PLEASE let me know if this helped and sorry for the bad news about having to open up the laptop

How to remove a cmos battery is a dell inspiron


The CMOS battery is located underneath the keyboard of your Dell i5100.

If you're up to it, then try these simple steps:

- Open the lid to a 180 degree angle and using a very small Flat Screwdriver, pry the hinge cover on the right side. There's a small notch where you can pry it out.

- Check if the keyboard is being held by 2 screws. To loosen them, remove the battery and unscrew them from inside the battery bay.

- Carefully lift the keyboard in an angled position and check the ribbon or contact tape that connects the keyboard to the motherboard. Flip the keyboard towards you and see if you can reach the CMOS battery (usually covered by a blue plastic shield or protective cover. There's a pair of wire coming from it and the end is a small connector. You may remove the connector attached to the motherboard carefully to get the CMOS battery.

Need to unlock bios password on dell laptop, have service tag # and ends in 59b


Hi,

If you have loast the password, to reset the BIOS password you need to remove temporarily the CMOS battery , so to reset BIOS settings.

Some model may be using NV Ram, in that case removing the battery is not enough.

The battery is located on the lower side on the motherboard.

On many DELL models the battery can be accessed from the side of DVD slot, battery slot, or RAM slot, without disassemblying the laptop.

On some model you may need complete disassembly (eg. Dell Le series).

The battery looks like a couple of coin batteries wrapped in plastic.

Before disassemblying or removing covers, always unplug adapter and remove battery.

On Dell Inspiron 8500 the battery can be accessed from a side , after removing the primary battery.

I think Dell 8500 can be set to use NV Ram to store the password.
In this case the problem cannot be solved removing primary battery, then accessing and removing CMOS battery for few minutes.

If you still cannot reset you have two way out.

Disassemble completely and access the NVRAM microswitch, or contact Dell and get master password.

You can also try one of this standard Dell factory CMOS password:

ALFAROME
BIOSTAR
biostar
biosstar
CMOS
cmos
LKWPETER
lkwpeter
setup
SETUP
Syxz
Wodj

Dell 5100 cmos battery replacement


The CMOS battery most likely is a button battery, probably a CR2032 lithium battery. The battery could be located on the bottom of the laptop behind one of the panels or under the keyboard. There is no MOP, when you remove the battery it may default to the factory defaults (depends how long the battery has been removed) and you need to go into the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time etc.
