I think there must be a problem with the battery in my Evesham Axis. A couple of weeks ago, I started to lose the clock when the PC was off - it resets to Jan 2002. Possibly connected are some other hardware-like issues so I wondered if anyone knew what battery I can buy to replace it, where it is and how easy it is to get to it. Any idea?
Ok the only way to check if the battery is working on your mobo is to look in the bios, im not sure if you are good at looking into bios,or you may be wanting to get someone to look at it for you,it does have a internal clockin bios that can be adjusted to the proper time/date.If it is not holding the time correctly(usually found by checking bios after reboot) then your battery on the mobo needs to be replaced,and can be reasonable cheap. HOWEVER, chances are it might be in the O.S. and if this is true can be changed (RIGHTCLICK ON TIME IN THE TOOLBAR--ADJUST TIME/DATE),,,,,, but if this doesn't hold your time/date after another boot up then there is a bigger problem i.e. software issue. Sometimes illegal downloaded software containes a patch that fools software into thinking that its too early to try and oudate(renew) or search for updates that wont make a program work any longer. Good luck JLS

It should work provided the components do not draw more than 400W. If the wattage is exceeded these switch mode power supplies usually automatically shut down. I recommend you install a switch mode power supply over the 420W rating.
Yes this is easy task,if you wand to change the motherboard fan than firstly remove the power cord in CPU,pull out the side cover of CPU and than you see the motherboard fan in front of you,Two fans available in system one is CPU FAN and another is motherboard FAN,you need to change motherboard fan,this is attached in motherboard with two iron stick,press the both stick through thumb and press the upper,now you remove the older motherboard fan and fix the new one.after fix the new fan press both iron stick and fix it.
plug the power cable and switch on the system.
Are you asking about upgrading your graphics card?
Aslong as you get a graphics card that is AGP connection you will be fine.
They dont make AGP graphics cards anymore, but one of the last ones made (and most powerful is the Nvidia 7950 AGP) can be found all over ebay.
Its not a cheap card though, and a later edition nvidia 6 card would be just as good for you, such as an Nvidia 6800 AGP graphics card
Needs a new bios battery. Mine lasted 6 months before giving up. However you can leave the laptop plugged into the mains power when computer is switched off and the date/time will be kept. Otherwise change the bios battery or reset the time each time you use it. I phone Evesham and they said that the bios battery is soldered to the chassis on this model and so would need to be returned to the factory for this to be replaced. Since Evesham are now defunct you would need to get a PC repair shop to replace the battery. Is easy to do.
Axis 3000 is listed as 360w and this should just do as the card requires 350w.
As you are going to Ebuyer anyway why not get a new PSU, they have a 450 watt PSU with a large fan for £16.
Make sure you are getting the AGP version and not the PCI-E version of the card. I find eBuyer are usually open to replacing items and you could ask their tech support first.
