In case you don't know, the cmos battery is a round, flat silver object, coin-like.

Good luck!

My laptop (HP Pavillion DV9000) startup issue.

As you know CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip (stores BIOS) powered by the CMOS battery you refer to, inside computers that stores information such as the system time and system settings for your computer. I have heard of issues when the CMOS battery is low (1.3 it should have failed normally by now), from boot inc other issues, so id say yes possible. The thing is any machine at POST boot is only as powerful and reliant as its Bios, which has given me another thought. Some companies when a system boots have the CMOS ROM copied to RAM as ram is faster, I cant honestly say if HP do this, was just a thought.
hope helps a little, let me know if i can be of further help

The cmos on the Pavilion is going to be in one of three places, and will be one of two styles of battery. The cmos style will be either a large watch type battery about the size of a nickle located in a slot on the mother board, or in a yellow or greenish pouch with two wires leading to a connector, located under a cover on the bottom of the machine, or under the keyboard.
