    On the motherboard you may have a conector for an external CMOS battery. It would be a 2 or 4 pin connector near the rear of the motherboard. Check your manual. These run about a dollar and use 4 AA batteries..

It is best to take it to a local computer repair shop. That would be safest. Shouldnt be too expensive to repair.

    You can also enter your zip code in the box marked "Repair Service" at the right panel. That should throw up a number of repair services in your area. Just mention that you were referred by Fixya and you just might get a discount :)

Need to replace cmos battery inac552us

first try leaving the computer on for 24-hours. In some cases this can charge the battery and resolve your issue. This often resolves CMOS battery related issues when a computer has been left off for several months. If this does not resolve your issue follow the below steps.
Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard, verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed. Most computers today use a coin cell CMOS battery, as shown in the image to the right.
Tip: Some CMOS batteries may be held down by a metal clip or bar. This clip just holds the battery in place and the battery can still be removed by sliding it under the clip. Do not bend this clip to get the battery out.
once you have located the battery, write down all information about the battery (Voltage, chemistry, wiring, and packaging). If possible, remove the battery and take it to the location you plan on purchasing a new battery from. The part number for this battery for most computers is CR2032
Look at the following page to complete this repalcement:

Need cmos battery info

CMOS battery is a CR2032 (3V) button-style lithium battery. They are available practically anywhere and are inexpensive. The battery is located near the Southbridge Chipset in a clip-style battery holder. Use a small screwdriver to gently lift the battery out of the holder and replace it with the new one. Do this with the unit powered off, of course

Try changing the CMOS battery.

Go to any half decent supermarket or electronics store and ask for a CR2032 coin cell battery.

open your computer case and find the exact same battery somewhere on the motherboard and change/swap them over. There should be a silver retainer clip holding the battery in to its housing, release this clip and insert new battery.

Need to replace the clock batteries in my aspire rc 500 can you tell me what to do

You are talking about the CMOS battery. It takes a CR2032 and it can be found on the motherboard. It's about the size of a quarter. Just carefully remove the old one and replace it.
I'm curious to know why you think the battery needs to be replaced. If you clock keeps the wrong time, the battery could be defective, but more likely is the possibility that you computer just can't keep time correctly.
You could try to install a utility like "Atomic Clock" to keep the system updated.

How to change battery in my 2002 Dell 8200 desktop

Desktops only have a very small battery for maintaining the clock, it will not keep the machine turned on after power is removed.
If you open the side of the desktop (once you've turned it off and removed the power cord), you will see a small coin cell battery on the motherboard (main panel). Generally this is a watch battery like a CR2032, or something similar. You can gently pry this out of the holder and replace it with an identically numbered battery.

Cmos battery replacement - Gateawy Tower Pentium 2 - what's involved? - any advise gratefully received .

1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Open the computer case.
(Wish I knew the Model Number, I might be able to give you a link from Gateway Support, on how to open this puppy)

3) Look for the CMOS battery.
The CMOS battery for that computer will be a CR2032.
A type of watch battery, that is approximately the size of a U.S. nickle.

There are several different methods of holding the battery, into the battery holder on the motherboard.

I'm not advertising for these guys, but this video tells you about BIOS, CMOS, and shows a typical CMOS battery holder.

For this particular style of CMOS battery holder, there is a spring clip that is released by pushing a tab on the side.
The tab is RIGHT next to the battery.
The tab is pressed to the Outside.
This releases the battery where a fingernail can be used to lift it up, then remove it.

Some CMOS battery holders simply have a spring steel arm, which extends halfway across the battery itself.
The spring steel arm is gently lifted up, and the battery is slid out.

The Positive ( + ) of the battery ALWAYS goes up, when installing.

BEFORE you reach inside your computer, observe Anti-Static Precautions!

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
(Bare metal surface, not painted)

This action will relieve your body of Static.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be SURE to Touch the metal frame again.

Game keeps losing memory .any way to stop this.mainly SUPER MARIO WORLD.

Well its because the battery that allows you to save the game data is dead now or is dying then.
1. NEW CR2032 3v Battery.
2. Onboard CR2032 Clip-in Battery Holder.*
3. Labor Charge For Installation.
4. Return Shipping Coverage
5. Lifetime Guarantee On Install (not battery obviously)*
* Game Boy & Game Boy Color batteries will be replaced with new battery only as there is no holder I have encountered small enough to fit inside a Game Boy cart.

Now changing your game save battery next time it dies will be as simple as just popping out the new battery and sliding a new one into the mounted holder! I am aware that some people may be able to do this themselves, and if you are technically inclined, then by all means pass this service up. However if you aren't, or don't want to take the risk of damaging your game, shoot me a PM. Thanks Everyone @ NA!


SNES cart with battery holder installed. Looks nice huh!? These holders sit flush with the board, and unlike almost every other one, DO NOT POSE ANY ISSUES closing the game.


NES cart with battery holder installed. Again, same as above, these sit flush with the board and pose no issues closing up the cart as normal.

Each game will also be tested to make sure games save properly several times before being returned to you so as to avoid redos and $ wasted for everyone on shipping. Thanks for all the interest everyone!

CMOS battery bad

Acer TravelMate 225X solution:
The battery type CR2032 (Lithium, 3V, 20mm/3.2mm) is the same as mentioned in solution #1 but you must use a cell with connected wires and a 3-pin connector. It is hard to buy. A workaround is (1) to use the battery with connected tabs or (2) the battery holder (maybe BH1060 or similar). Original wire and connector from old battery must be cut out and soldered to new battery tabs or holder pins. Remember polarity - note the wire colors.

The battery position is under keyboard in the central position between the PCMCIA slot and the CD-ROM slot. Remove the strip cover near the display, slide the keyboard in the direction of display and lift it up.

Check cmos error

Read this only if you are sure that you have replaced the correct type of battery & you have set the jumpers to the default locations.

It is not the problem with the battery or the charging problem (Actualy CMOS battery is not Recharable ) most cases.

The problem is the battery holder in mainboard where we put the battery IN. eventualy or accidently these Pins from the Battery Holder are made loose or not contacted with the battery.i had the same problem and the solution was to adjust the Battery holder to seat the battery in proper way.

May be This helpe
