If you turn the Laptop upside down (making sure that the laptop is not turned on at the time!) you will see some compartment panels that can be removed. Undo the screws to these and you will see the CMOS battery in one of them. Have a replacement battery ready to insert...remove the old battery and insert the new one. Put the cover back on and your done! Hope this helps.

Yes, there is an internal battery that keeps the time, it is called the cmos battery and belive it or not, if the time is not set, it won't boot, you can get a cmos battery for your laptop pretty cheap on ebay, and east to install, just pop the old one out and put the new one in, must open the laptop to do this, or take it to someone to do it for you.
