Turn the computer over and locate the battery compartment near the display hinges. Push the latches away from each other to unlock the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop.

Reconnect the wire to the mainboard and replace the metal memory door. Secure the door to the laptop by tightening the phillips screw with the screwdriver.
4. Reinstall the laptop battery, inserting the tabs first and clicking downward. Plug the AC adapter back into the laptop. Flip the computer over and power on the system. Enter the BIOS and change the password if desired, or leave it blank for no password prompt. (Source: How to Reset the BIOS Password on a Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop ' eHow.com)
