Replacing the CMOS battery on a laptop is by no means an easy task...
\015\012
\015\012On a regular desktop computer it would only involve taking off a panel and replacing a flat button-cell battery.
\015\012
\015\012A laptop, however, is a whole different beast. Please don't take any offense, but if your calling it a cosmos battery, I could venture to guess that working on a laptop is a foreign experience.
\015\012
\015\012I would strongly recommend going to a local shop to have them do the work as with many laptops losing screws, forgetting what goes where and even breaking components and plastic pieces is far too easy to do.
\015\012
\015\012IF YOU MUST DO IT YOURSELF!
\015\012Track down the specific CMOS battery for your model of laptop. (Do a quick google of your Dell model number and the words "replacement cmos battery") Once you find the specific part number, you'll be able to start the hunt for your specific part as laptops generally do not use button cell batterys the same way as a desktop, they are usually either soldered to the motherboard or have a specific connector.
\015\012
\015\012If you're comfortable with it, you could take the laptop apart, track down the battery and find the voltage then resolder a new button-cell battery to the connectors and finally wraping it in electrical tape.
\015\012
\015\012Good Luck and be careful! I'm still finding screws from my first laptop tear-down. lol
