I have not yet ever seen a laptop nor desktop which has a soldered CMOS battery to the motherboard. Maybe that has something to do with what country you are in? but I have not yet seen a soldered CMOS battery and have fixed over 100 different computers atleast, both laptops and desktops.. more desktops then laptops though.

I'm determined to get this machine running

My advice to you would be to contact whoever you bought the notebook from. Aside from that, I believe there are some pins on the mobo that you can short to clear the password. I can't remember which pins they are though.

There sometimes is a reset jumper (usually close to the battery) that will let you reset the the BIOS to the original settings, you could look for that...

I've never seen a reset jumper on a laptop.

Your going to need the Universal Password reset, if your Service ID for the laptop is -D35B, such as 8WG030J-D35B, then use a tool called Latitude_MasterPW.exe. Enter your service ID and it will give you your master password.
