You can find a replacement battery at any local retailer that sells battery watches. If there's a walmart in your area you can go there. Just take the dead battery with you so you can get the correct replacement.

Cmos battery low

Is this a desktop? If so just remove the Power Cord and open the case. Look for a shiny battery about the size of a nickel on the motherboard. You will need a small flat head screwdriver to pop it out. You can buy a new one at Walmart, Radio Shack, or any grocery store or pharmacy for $5 or so. The most common size is CR2032 but check the size on yours.

If it is a laptop:

Most laptops require you to take the laptop apart to get to the CMOS Battery. It will be a silver battery about the size of a nickel on the motherboard. The most common size is CR2032. Also sometimes the battery will be in a vinyl covering and have a cable that attaches to a port on the motherboard. Which ever type you have you'll need to either remove the battery or unplug the cable.

Cmos battery error failure

The CMOS (BIOS) battery keeps the computer'a comfiguration and the Date & Time settings in the CMOS (BIOS) chip in its memory. When the CMOS (BIOS) battery is flat these configuration information is lost.
Replace the CMOS battery with a new one, in most cases this battery is a lithium 3 volt battery type CR2032 and it is coin size battery 18mm in dia.(check it to make sure the type of battery is installed on your motherboard).
When you replace this battery then go into the BIOS and set the Date & Time etc.

I have Dell 4700 Dimension and can start up it, receiving message : Floppy diskette seek failure. But computer doesn't have floppy. Somebody told me it is up to motherboard.

You need to tap the del key while booting up or select f12 key to go into bios and disable floppy disk.

This way the pc will stop locking for a floppy disk.

Error is the firmware has detected that a coms battery failure occurred

i just want to inform you that CMOS battery failure is not a big deal
you just need to replace CMOS battery from the motherboard
CMOS battery is responsible for date and time management in you PC
also it gives a refrence point in time and space when booting
so if you are a serious programmer you may change it immidiately
and if you are a normal user and you are least bothered with system time and date then
you may keep ignoring this message.

thanks and regards
kindly rate this solution!!

Booting process interrupted during the booting process, pc reports error, press f1 to view setup or f2 to continue.

Try going to the setup and loading the default values. If this does not solve your problem its time to change your CMOS battery. Turn your system off. Open your case. You will find a coin like component. That is your CMOS battery remove it and replace it with a new one. When booting for the first time after replacing the battery,enter the correct date and time.

Hi... i'm using DG31PR intel motherboard. for the past few months am getting these errors while booting... CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR CMOS BATTERY FAILURE i've replaced many new CMOS batteries.. but still not...

I would reset the CMOS. This is done by removing that CMOS battery. Also, find the jumper that says "J-21" and move it to the alternative position. The jumper is located on the motherboard. Boot up without that battery in , and choose "Reset" that should clear out the junk. Also, replace the battery. Go to and look for a "bios update" the DG is a value board. a huge value board and one of Intel's bummer boards. Update the firmware. Once you do that, you should be good to go.

Booting problem

I think the CMOS battery is not connected properly when it is taken off and replaced. Check if the connector on the top is in contact with the battery correctly.
