I have a situation where I set up an administrator password in BIOS and when I enter the password, it does not recognize it. I called IBM support, and the rep said to take the battery out to reset it. However, I removed as many parts as I could, but I couldn't reach the system board. The computer is an IBM NetVista 2179, model 750, made in 2000. Does anyone have experience with this or a similar situation that could help me find the battery on the system board? Or another way of resetting BIOS?
Thanks

Thank you! I was looking in the drive ports, no wonder I didn't find the battery. It's behind the monitor.
