Thanks fot that, my system board does not ressemble that and I am unable to find the round battery with the cables attached to pull out of the system board.
I have been trying to find a schematic for the model I have without much success as of this time.
I guess I need the schematic showing me where the CMOS jumper is on this board.

It only mentions CMOS does not show how or where to change anything. These are user guides for the laptop.
