Why do you need to reset the CMOS?? If you dont mind me asking ??
have a look here and scroll down to the pics. It will show where the battery is. remove the battery for a few minutes and the CMOS will reset to default.

What happened when you removed then replaced the battery??
Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords.
The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation.
If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor.
Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch :
CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD

But removing the battery would do the same thing as long as you also removed the power cord from the wall outlet.
