Question about Computers & Internet

Battery replacement Hi Howard, Thank you for your help. I am used to change the batteries of my computers. However on this motherboard Aopen VKM400Am-S, I cannot find any battery. The only metallic disc about the size of a battery is a part of a square chip. The following reference is written on this round element : VIA vt8237 0416CD CHINA 2IA29F2600 Obviously it is not a battery. Is it possible certain motherboards do not have any battery ? Hoping your answer, Regards Alain

    Great ! Then can you please give me the link where you found the manual with the photo, so that we can talk about the same image.
    Thank you.

    The link did not work, even when copying and pasting in my browser. I can even not have access to the index directory of this website.

    Now I found where the battery was. It was vertically positionned at the edge of the motherboard, hiden under the hard disk.

    Thank you for your help

Where is the battery that powers the Internet time/ date?

The motherboard BIOS battery keeps the motherboard setting and the date and time correct just like a watch battery. This BIOS battery is usually a 3 volt lithium battery, it is a coin size battery approx. 20mm in diameter most likely a CR2030 battery.
If you have a Internet time program that connects to the Internet, it will synchronize the computer's time with the Internet time.

Date &time change every time I turn on my pc.why? how to fix the problem?

Hi elfridapanot,

The CMOS battery in the motherboard is be weak. Thats why the time resets every time you start you computer. Open up the computer case, and look for a battery on the motherboard. Take it out carefully and replace it with a new battery. Then start your computer and set the date. Next time when you restart, the date will not be reset.


If this information was helpful, please rate it.

Thank you for using Fixya,

I have already changed the the power supply, but the computer don´t start no beep, only the the red led on the mother board light

The motherboards green LED light sends 5volt to the bios battery to keep it charged. It is normally called, standby LED.
Pull you're bios battery and check its current voltage. Use a volt meater. It should read 3 volt DC. See page 30 in you're manual. If you don't have you're manual you can download it from the link provided;
You'll need Adobe reader installed to view the manual link. You're bios battery may need to be replaced. On the other hand the relay as shown on page 30 may be defective. If this is so, you will not be able recharge the bios battery. There is no fix for this other than replacing the motherboard.

Good luck!

How to change cmos battery on aopen xc cube ux45g 1394

Although this question is really old I would like to answer it as I had the same problem a few days ago. This first answer from ikkenom is not really good, it is to general.
If your Aopen XCube UX45G forgets BIOS settings like time, boot order or other options it is very likely that the battery needs to be replaced. To replace the CMOS battery of the XCube UX45G you need a new CR2032 battery. The battery socket is a bit hidden. It can be found next to the IDE ports. See this image: . First turn of the power chord, remove the battery as ikkenom described and insert the new battery. The positive pole (+) has to be positioned in the way that this pole can "see" the RAM slots. Turn back power chord, start the computer und reset BIOS settings.
