Found it, but wiggling it loose was not easy. I was able to pry gently up on the open slot to pop the battery loose and coax it out. If there is another way, please share.

I thought about using pliers, but the thought of shorting a weak Li-ion didn't appeal to me.

Now the hard part, I have several replacement CR2032's, but the PC wants a 2025!

The CMOS battery is under the CPU fan and heatsink. You must remove the vented plastic cover on the bottom of the laptop. Then remove the CPU fan and heatsink assembly by loosening the four retainer screws and carefully unplugging the fan electrical connector. Then CMOS battery is under a cutout in the copper foil RF shield.

My xps 420 pc desktop wont boot. Shut it down last


Try and reset your CMOS and see if it helps.

If you're not sure how, then unplug the power cable from your PC, then take off the side panel, on the motherboard is a set of 2 or 3 pins to Clear the CMOS (reset the BIOS) all boards are different, so there is no set location for the CMOS pins, if you're unsure, just remove the battery from the motherboard for about 30 seconds, then replace it ("+" facing up)

But you need to make sure your PS is not plugged into any external power source while you're doing this or you risk deleting your BIOS

Hope this helps in some way.
