Cmos battery is underneath. Take off fan cover. remove fan screws x 4. Then lift black cloth on right hand side. You will see the offender. Lift the battery from the left hand side gently with a small flat head screw driver....

If it is accessable by an end user it will be located under one of the removable panels (ram cover etc) or under the keyboard.

it it usually in a plastic cover and connected to the motherboard by a black and red wire going into a small white plug, it will fell like a coin beneath the platic wrapper, these part would usually need to be ordered for the specific laptop and can be found cheaply on sites such as ebay

Battery low message always


Which battery did you change? The battery on the bottom of the laptop? Wrong battery, sounds like it is your CMOS Battery that is attached to the motherboard.

When to change CMOS battery?


You will need to change the battery just when the computer says something like this "System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used" or also could say something like "CMOS battery low", etc. That's the time to change the battery.

Please can you tell me how to reset the cmos on a samsung R510 Laptop


Hello you just have to remove the cmos battery:


10_18_2012_1_51_22_pm.gif
Press the release pad and the battery will pop out
DO NOT have any power on disconnect all power and usb cables
when you do that.

Wait for 10 min. or so with the battery out
and the bios will reset back to factory settings.

Replace the battery and boot up your machine and enter the bios
you kave to configure the boot order.

Here is some youtube videos how you do that:

But it depends what bios you have.

Good luck

Hello, when I put my pc running it says CMOS checksum error press F1 to enter or Del to enter setup, but I press Del when I save changes "save and exit" the computer restarts, but this time...


The Checksum error basically shows that boot settings which were previously set has been changed or reset. This usually happens when the battery loses its charge and thus fail to retain the CMOS settings. This can also be caused by a power surge or a damaged motherboard. But most of the times it would be the battery problem.

You can try replacing the CMOS battery and enter the values back into CMOS or reset values to default. Then switch off and boot up again.
Hope this works. Good Luck. ~SmokinJoe~

Every time when i restart the system my Time is changing so how can i fix this problem


Hi,

1. There is a coin sized battery present onto your motherboard, which is used to remember your computer CMOS/ BIOS settings as well as date and time.

2. If the system time keeps changing when your computer is turned off and started back, this indicated that your CMOS battery in your motherboard drained out of its charge.

3. Open you computer cabinet and locate the CMOS battery. Replace it with a new one similar to this.

4. Restart your computer and set the time once and it will be retained forever without any problem
I hope this is helpful to you.

Please rate the solution provided.
Thanks

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 )..in 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.
