Where is the cmos located
Posted by Anonymous on
The CMOS battery is located on the motherboard. You would almost have to take the complete thing apart before you find it. You would be better off downloading password recovery software like OphCrack. It's free as an .iso file so you would just burn it to a disc and it will find the password for you.
