How to change battery in IBM Aptiva E3N? Desk top

Posted by on

  • internetpal Dec 31, 2007

    There is just one problem that I do not understand. Although I put a brand new battery 2032 bought from Future Shop, the time on the clock at the right bottom corner, still runs slow, say 2 minutes. However, when I switch off the computer, and re-start after say 5 minutes, the times comes back correct as I set it.

    Any solution?

Open the case and look for a battery that is the size of a thick quarter on the main board. I think it is a panasonic 2032 battery or the generic of that.

    I would search Microsoft for a special fix per a download for that board. There have been timing issues with boards simular to this with amd products and microsoft in the past that have needed a patch to fix it.

Go to and type: "Ibm Aptiva Support or Lenovo Support" in the search (without the quotes). Go to their drivers and download site, enter your computer's model and operating system. Look for Manuals or Documents on the site to download.

Ok, I'm trying to help my dad, he's got an IBM aptiva 2174 model 572 s/n am71xp2. He's in AZ and I'm in CT. He said he got it to turn on the other day, used it, then shut it off and now it wont' turn on....

the cords etc only fit one way in one place... exploded parts view on computer equipment ? forget it, how do you think us technical guys survive ? :) seriously though, try checking the power delivery from the power cord before it plugs into the transformer, then check if the transformer is delivering power... voltage meter and common sense not to electrocute yourself ( or your dad in this case ) would be wise. further remove the battery and see if it works with the mains plugged in without a battery ( faulty battery perhaps )

Its more than likely the transformer though and these can be purchased at reasonable proces either at a dedicated IBM aftermarket parts supplier, IBM themselves or trawl the net...

good luck
