\015 I have removed the cmos bettery. The password is on it. that why I would like to know the cmos jumper.Or please show me means to remove the password.\015\012thanks.\015

Answers :

The password is not on the battery it is in the volatile memory.
\015\012
\015\012The battery supplies the power to the volatile memory to make sure it retains its settings.
\015\012
\015\012If you have removed the Cmos battery and when you put it back the machine still has a password then the password is written into the non-volatile memory and cannot be re-set that way.
\015\012
\015\012Get a hold of someone with ERD Commander and they will drop the password off in a couple of minutes
These steps are for the CMOS password built-into the hardware of the latitude X300, not the Windows Password. For the Windows password, please follow the instructions from my fellow tech which answered your question earlier (about using ERD Commander). That is the best way for Windows password.
\015\012
\015\012The CMOS password clearing can be solved by doing the following:
\015\012
\015\0121- remove the CMOS battery and include the power adapter and the main battery itself
\015\0122- Once CMOS is removed, press the power button repeatedly for 60 seconds (do not hold the power button down, just keep pressing it as if you wanted to turn on the system).
\015\0123- You should've pressed the power button at a rate of 2-6 times per seconds. Once the 60 Seconds (1 minute) pass, place back the CMOS battery, and reassemble what you disassembled.
\015\0124- place back the main battery and the power cord
\015\0125- now, power on the computer
\015\012
\015\012Power on
\015\012
\015\0121- press (several taps) the [F8] key until you see a menu of options appear. Choose "Safe Mode"
\015\0122- once your computer goes into Windows in safe mode, type in your password and on the second screen, click "Yes"
\015\0123- now, check the computer's time and date and make sure you correct it
\015\0124- now, restart your computer normally
\015\0125- End
