I am not referring to the battery for power supply, which already mentioned above by other experts.
CMOS battery is for remembering system settings including the BIOS password. Obviously, CMOS battery is not easy to be accessed in most situations, you have to remove the laptop case to see the motherboard of laptop. The CMOS battery is normally located somewhere on the motherboard and can be seen once the laptop case is removed.
