Hi
Now a days there is no CMOS Battery in most of laptops. There is a small security chip in which the Bios Password is stored.
I hope you can still logon to the windows and it is not Power on Password.
If you can still logon in windows , you may try for some ERD ( emmergeny repair discs ) to solve your purpose.

Contact the manufacturer for help with a BIOS password. Be prepared to provide proof of ownership.

Are you asking about an old 486 running Win3.1? Many of those old systems didn't have a removeable CMOS battery. Do a google search for a program called "KillCMOS".

It is not a laptop. It is a old loud computer. Windows 3.1

Oops, did not read the configuration. You need not use and cell dischargiung in this case. There will be a Jumper on Motherboard , stating Cmos Password SET and RESET. It will be on SET , just power off machine put the jumper on RESET . Keep it there for 5 -10 sec. Again put back to SET and then power on. You are done.

You don't have to mess around opening the case, just use KillCMOS. It's perfectly safe. It will erase the BIOS password & reset all BIOS settings to the defaults.

Your AV may warn you that killcmos is a virus. It isn't.
