The almost inaccessible battery holder (1/2 AA) is only visible with a mirror and a strong light and a magnifying glass.You can just make out a graphic in the plastic holder.

Figure it out well, notice your main-board, the battery slot has a negative (-) and positive (+) mark, though it isn't noticeable but it has, then see your battery, when you're going to attach it to ***********-board, it should be (+) positive to positive (+) then (-) negative to negative (-)

How can i remove the battery

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.

While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.

ASUS motherboards, manufactured for both Intel and AMD processors, are a popular choice for custom-built computers.

The motherboard's battery is a flat, round 3-volt lithium battery.

This battery, which is installed in a special motherboard socket, powers up CMOS (complementary metal--oxide--semiconductor).

CMOS is an integrated motherboard chip that stores current BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) settings, such as system date and time.

A CMOS battery may last for many years, but eventually dies.

So you need to replace it.

Purchase a new CMOS battery available from many retailers (see Resources section). ASUS motherboards typically use a lithium CR2032 battery.

Turn off the computer.

Remove the computer case side panel.

Lay the computer on its side.

Find the CMOS battery that is situated in the socket approximately in the center of the motherboard.

Touch an unpainted metal part of the computer case or another metal surface to discharge static electricity.

Lift the CMOS battery out of its socket, using your fingers, and set it aside.

Insert the new lithium battery gently into the socket. Make sure that the battery's positive pole, marked with a plus sign (+), faces up.

Move the computer into the upright position and close the side panel of the computer case.

Press the "Power" button to turn the computer on.

Hope this helps.

Powermac screen developed fine black grid and won't operate properly

Isolate the problem to see if it's the screen or video card by connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without a problem then your original screen is bad and your video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same problems as your original then your video card inside the computer is bad.

The printer goes through the start up process and then gives the code on phaser 8560

Xerox Phaser 8560: Error Code 09,037.45 That's a ink loader error, due to the 8200 ink stick; to fix it:

- Power down the printer.
- Hold the back button and the info button at the same time, without letting go, power up the printer.
- Keep holding down the buttons until the XEROX logo comes fully to the center of the screen, keep holding for 2 more seconds, then let go. I'll take about a minute or two for the Diagnostic screen to come up, the display will turn blank and black.
- When the Diagnostic screen comes up go to down to the Function or Exercise option, there will be an option that says "clear ISC faults" it'll ask you to press OK to confirm, after you do then you will exit Diagnostics and the printer will reboot.
It should be fine until it happens again. Until all the 8200 ink is gone you will probably be doing this a few more times. Also make sure the 8200 ink is not jammed inside the ink loader, if it is then you have to un-jam it some how hope this helps

I overclocked my Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6 motherboard and now it won't boot

If you mean that nothing appears onscreen when you press the power button but you can hear the fans working then try this.
The quickest way to restore default bios settings is to remove the battery on the motherboard.
Important ..... Disconnect the power leads FIRST
Gain access to the motherboard and search for a small coin shaped battery. Note which way it fits into the holder, then remove it and leave the PC for 5 minutes. If you have a manual you can also check for jumper settings to discharge the bios battery.
Refit the battery (the correct way) and plug in the power lead. Cross your fingers and power up.

Broke power button dell dimension 8200

your best bet would be to take it to your local computer repair shop in the hope they are willing to just help you out as it's a very easy repair. failing that ask them if they have a spare switch of the samae type you need and repair it yourself. they normaly have lots of spare bits lieing around they might just give to you.

Pvm 800 moterboard bios

some motherboards will switch on and run after removing the cmos battery also but in some motherboards it is not possible it depends on the manufacture design ...

try changing the cmos battery with the new one that cmos battery might have lost it s power ...

after that also if you face the same problem then there may be some dust particles accumulating in the processor fan due to that it might not be able start clean them and refit and try it ....

if you still face the same problem then if you are using UPS then remove the connection from that and give the direct connection this may solve your problem if there is some problem in the UPS battery ....
