Having problems with your Gateway Solo2300 200MMX Pentium, 200 MHz (2500952) Retail Processor Upgrade ?

Where is my cmos battery. Gateway Solo 2500

\015 I need to clear a password\015

Answers :

You will have to contact the vendor as most all notebooks have a security chip for holding the password unlike a desktop where you can just pull the battery. With the security chip pulling the battery is not an option for almost all laptops out there.
On all motherboards, it will be a small coin-like battery either laying down or on its side held in with a clip of some sort.

Make sure you remove the power cord from the computer or the CMOS won't reset.
