The CMOS battery is on the back-side of the motherboard on the nx9030. You'll have to lift the motherboard up to gain access to it.

I need to rest password in bios


Hi,
Removing the RTC battery and leaving it uninstalled for 5 or more minutes causes all passwords and CMOS settings to be cleared. BIOS password can be removed by temporarily disconnecting/ removing the RTC/ CMOS (Coin-cell) battery from the motherboard.
Disconnect the coin-cell battery from the system board and it will reset the BIOS to its default setting and the password would be gone.
Please Refer to Page 29, 106 & 79 of the REPAIR MANUAL IBM T40 for Battery removal, keyboard removal and RTC battery removal instructions.
The Backup Battery (RTC, CMOS) is located under the keyboard. So you have to remove the keyboard to access the battery. The above Manual from IBM shows the exact method/ instructions and pictures for laptop dis-assembly for the purpose.
If you are comfortable with working inside such electronics, you can't do it yourself, or else you may seek help from local laptop service professional.


Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

How to reset the password of bios laptpp asus pc900


Most Asus motherboards will reset the BIOS by removing the RTC battery.

This battery is the small one that holds onto information the computer uses when it is not turned on; like what time it is (that's why they call it RTC = Real Time Clock).

The location of this battery varies from pc to pc, however, it is almost certainly on the motherboard. If you are technical enough to disassemble the machine, I can get more details for you. Basically, you remove the battery, the RTC battery and the power plug for 5 to 30 minutes, then reassemble and power up with a clear CMOS. You will have to adjust the time on the unit after this.
