There are different types of cmos bat on different motherboard. Some are coin-type. If you have coin type bat for your cmos, get the part number and replace it.

I have the battery. What do i need to change it


I'll take it that your computers clock is not keeping time/date or you get a checksum error.

1. Unplug computer and open it up

2. Locate the battery holder and carefully remove the battery from the metal tab

3. Replace battery quickly

4. close computer and start up

5. Press F10 and reset cmos values to default

6. If nothing has been resolved you have bad hardware or a faulty motherboard.

Replaced CMOS battery, still getting low voltage alert?


Hello,

Try another battery first. Also, clean the contacts on the battery socket with a pencil eraser to remove any oxidation that may inhibit contact. Inspect the battery socket and make sure nothing is bent. Please let me know if this helps or not.

Dell 4600 clock battery location


The Clock/time is kept with the aid of a silver 3Volt button cell. This cell also provides power to the BIOS/CMOS. It is found on the computer mainboard.

If you do replace it, be sure to enter the BIOS to set the time and other settings that may need ot be set.
The button to push to enter the BIOS is usually delete or F12.

Keep Well!

What type of CMOS battery does a Dell Dinmension 4600 use?


Hi friend,
A coin-cell battery maintains computer configuration, date, and time information. The battery can last several years.
If you have to repeatedly reset time and date information after turning on the computer, replace the battery. You can read anything about your dell dimension 4600 PC like....how to change the battery click on LINK

Low battery warning


That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

I have a Dell dimension 9150 which is 2 1/2 years old. Does it have a battery that I need to be concerned about replacing. I remember that used to be a problem with computers but don't know if that is...


Hi,
Every PC motherboard has a battery. That battery serves two purposes: to feed the configuration memory (also called CMOS) and to feed the real time clock of the computer (the one that show the date and the time).
An indication it is time to change the motherboard battery is receiving one of the following error messages when you turn on your computer: CMOS CHECKSUM FAILURE, CMOS BATTERY STATE LOW, CMOS SYSTEM OPTIONS NOT SET and CMOS TIME AND DATE NOT SET. Another indicator of a low battery is a clock that, after being set, runs well while the computer is on, but shows the wrong time when the computer is turned on the following day (it is late).

Clock not keeping correct time


The CMOS battery keeps the laptop configuration stored in the CMOS chip and the main battery has no effect on the CMOS.
If the date and time drift off, it indicates the CMOS battery is nearly flat and needs to be replaced.
If you had ticked the Daylight saving box in the Time Zone tab in Control Panel - Date and Time setting then the time would automatically adjust for Daylight saving.
