Generally the CMOS battery will be located on the computer's motherboard. You will have to disassemble most of the laptop if there isnt a panel that will allow access to the battery. The type of battery that powers the CMOS is usually CR2032 cell battery (Sometimes known as a watch battery), or something similar.

I found one guide ehow for the 6200, but in all honesty, if you have taken apart a laptop, then you'll be able to figure out a way to open up both of the computer's and find the battery.

The batteries in laptops are sometimes special batteries wired up with a connector, usually shrink wrapped as one piece. It is still connected to the motherboard. Keep this in mind as you take the laptop apart.
