The battery is a CR2032 just google it. very cheap.
to replace it you will need to dismantle your laptop and get to your motherboard which is where the battery is.

ASUS P5GZ-MX: Cmos Settings Wrong - Tryed New Cmos battery and setting time a date howto fix ?


It may just be that the new battery needs to be charged. I would leave it switched on for 24 hours to check. If this doesn't fix the problem, it could also be a failing BIOS chip or the charging circuit for the CMOS battery has failed. If the BIOS chip is not socketed or the cmos charging circuit has failed, you will need to replace the motherboard or find an electronics engineer to replace the failed components, this will probably be more expensive that a new board.

Dell Inspiron 546 MT : replaced cmos battery due to checkpoint error, and now receive a CMOS checksum error and asks to either press F! to run setup or pree F2 to load default values and continue. Wh


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today.
My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Jbellovary.

Since the battery was removed the CMOS would have Cleared as it needs power from a battery to retain the settings.

This therefore means that the BIOS/CMOS has already been reset to defaults and this is why it is giving you this message.

It sees that the settings have changed and it wants you to tell it why.
When this screen comes up Press F2 to load defaults.

Then let it run.
You will now need to enter the BIOS/CMOS by tapping the delete key on first powering on your computer, until you see the BIOS/CMOS screen.

Now set the date and time and set the Boot priority to HDD, then DVD drive.
Also enable USB2.0 support if it is disabled. Check that your drives are being detected.

Save and exit setup.

It should now be A-Okay.

Take care!

Computer will not load windows OS. it will say bios rom checksum error on a compaq presario SR1365CL


This is a typical sign that the CMOS battery (the coin-shaped battery on the motherboard) has failed & needs to be replaced. After replacing the CMOS battery, you will need to boot into BIOS & save CMOS settings.

Yes the cmos battery is on the motherboard.

Every motherboard that runs a computer has a backup battery to run the circuit while turned off. This battery runs the real-time clock (RTC) and is referred to as the CMOS battery. By keeping the clock active and running even when the computer is switched off, power up/down cycles can be logged and before the internet, your computer could keep dates accurately. It also serves to maintain the system configuration settings in BIOS memory based on RAM or FLASH RAM.

take off the side panel of the tower and look at the main board. the cmos battery looks kinda like a quarter. it has a tab that needs to be pressed with something like a small screwdriver. make sure you do not install the new one upside down

Remove the Thinkpad main battery. Look for a small yellow disk. This is the CMOS battery. It is connected to the motherboard with two (2) wires that plug into the motherboard. The plug is included on the wires of a new battery. Check EBay for Thinkpad CMOS batteries. I have also heard Radio Shack in some cases carries this battery.
