Dell inspiron 6000 CMOS battery replacement

Hello,
My Dell Inspiron 6000 won't boot, no video, HD spins, fan runs, plugged into AC power supply and battery is fully charged. Unit is 5 1/2 years old, so I suspect the CMOS backup battey may be TU. Need procedure to replace it.

  1. Do you hear any beeps?
  2. Hi kg61

    The Dell web site has good documentation for dismantling most of it's PC's & laptops and how to find and replace components.

    It is unlikely that a flat or dead cmos battery would prevent bootup

    On some older PC's the cmos battery is a re-chargable miniture nicad battery rather than a lithium button cell

    Do you have a spare screen to plugin to check if the laptop screen has failed ?
    or has diverted all output to the VGA port ?

    regards
    Mike Barnes
  3. I thought of that too, will try the video on the outtput port, but by watching the HD activity LED, unit does not appear to be booting at all.
