I replaced mine some time ago and cannot recall if there was an easier way, but I ended up taking it apart to almost every piece. Even the keyboard, hard drive etc. I thought I would never get it together. A ridiculous system. Cutting a hole would have been a whole lot easier, but it is possible to do without.

You can see it under the hard drive

Dear Sir/Madam, I bought hp Compaq NC 6220.I need remove the c mos password.I didn't enter the password it'd coming automaticlly administrator passowrd.please tell me the solution. Thank u...


HP Compaq NC6220/6230 BIOS password reset procedure:
  1. disconnect the power supply and remove the battery
  2. remove the three screws that hold in the keyboard on the bottom
  3. up top slide the four tabs on the keyboard closest to the screen towards the touch pad
  4. fold the keyboard over (no need to disconnect it from the mainboard)
  5. using a tiny flat head pry up the power button panel along the edge of the screen
  6. bow the power button panel in the middle of the laptop and gently ease one side up
  7. unplug the connector for the power button panel and remove
  8. locate the CMOS battery in the upper right corner, follow the wire to the left and locate the connector at the upper left corner of the dvd drive
  9. remove the two screws located in the immediate vicinity of the CMOS battery connector
  10. detach the CMOS battery connector
  11. have a beer, sip slow and take at least five minutes
  12. DO NOT reconnect the CMOS battery or the laptop battery
  13. connect the power supply and power on
  14. hit F10 to enter setup
  15. if you did it right you should get right into the BIOS setup; change whatever settings you fancy, save and exit
  16. let the laptop finish POST then power off and disconnect the power supply
  17. reassembly is the reverse of above
when you power back on and right before the OS boots you'll get a message about the date and time not being set, this will go away after the first full boot into the OS

All the best

Need to reset the password on my netbook can't figure out how to find battery

there are two kinds of batteries on your laptop. One is the power battery which is located at the back, the other is the CMOS battery (silver coated circle-shaped) which is located inside your laptop. You need to tear it down by removing the power battery, unscrew the sides of it using the screw driver, remove the hard drive and then optical drive. Then remove the screws at the sides of your keyboard to open the inner compartment. You just **** the CMOS to reset the password on your laptop...

How do i change the cmos battery in a travelmate c110. The time and date and bios settings keep changing. Figure it needs a cmos battery. thanks

The cmos battery is exactly located beneath in between the touchpad and speaker, it's a meticulous job, you could see a twin cable leading through the keyboard area. After removing the keyboard, cut the battery wires at the edge of the old battery and replace the new sealed pack by soldering its wires to the same connection. Be cautioned not to break off the slim edges of the keyboard sides by attempting to reach the battery while lifting up top silver panel from the front near the Infrared.

Ty 4 the advice...

Hi, the cmos battery is not under the keyboard, take the side off your PC and on the motherboard, (the first thing you should see) there should be a 3 volt battery (about the size of a 20 cent coin), remove to reset cmos. If you need any more help locating the motherboard just ask, Cheers

The CMOS battery is located under the system board, and is not accessible from under the keyboard.

The keyboard has to be removed in order to change the CMOS batter, (another reason why I don't like Sony laptops.)

Below is the batter I just pulled from a user's VGN-FS660\W 892cbd5.jpg
