How can I replace the CMOS battery an ASUS laptop?


There is no replaceable CMOS battery on this model.
It is probably a rechargeable battery on the motherboard.
See Manual which only mentions the main battery pack.

WHERE IS THE BIO BATTERY LOCATED


Acer Aspire cmos battery



Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover (refer to your owner's manual if necessary), then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing.

Lay the cover aside, then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable, then remove the battery.

Need to replace cmos battery in Gateway MP8708


Power down PC. Open the PC tower. Look at the motherboard and find the CMOS battery. Looks like the picture below. Make sure you touch some sort of metal area on the PC to ground yourself before touching the components. Use something thin to pop the old CMOS battery out. The CMOS batteries are usually universal. CR2032 is the usual type used. These can be found at a CVS or Walgreens. Once you have acquired the next battery, make sure the CR2032 is facing up and just press it in.

You'll have to remove the CMOS battery. Most laptopsrequire you to take the laptop apart to get to the CMOS Battery. It willbe a silver battery about the of a nickel on the motherboard. Themost common is CR2032. Also sometimes the battery will be in a vinylcovering and have a cable that attaches to a port on the motherboard. Whichever type you have you'll need to either remove the battery or unplug the cableand let the laptop sit for an hour or two. Then put it back, reassemblethe laptop and reboot the laptop. With the CMOS battery out the computerwill lose the date, time and password.

When i open it said time off day clock stopped


Problem is with either the CMOS Battery or the Motherboard.

You can reset the CMOS battery.

You can replace the CMOS battery but if laptop is under warranty request for the Motherboard to be replaced.

If laptop is no longer under warranty I would suggest ask a local technician to have the CMOS battery replace which is less costly than replacing the motherboard.

Hope this helps.

Is the cmos battery on a vaio vgn-fe31m on the


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.

How do I replace the CMOS battery for Toshiba Satellite A10-S169. Thank you


The cmos battery in laptops is not easily replaced. The whole laptop must be taken apart to get at the cmos battery which is soldered to the motherboard. You should be able to find a new battery on ebay but then will require someone to take it all apart and resolder the new battery onto the motherboard

Gateway 450rog cmos battery


The CMOS battery is located on the motherboard, just under the bottom left side of the keyboard, by the letter 'V". It looks like a clock battery, marked 3V (volts). The battery comes out of its "cage/connector" by gently lifting it with a small flat screwdriver. Replacement CMOS batteries are inexpensive and readily available at any computer shop. Hope that helps

CMOS or RTC battery for this laptop : can it be replaced


Hi AshishB, Yes, Toshiba does refer to the CMOS battery in their literature as the real time clock battery. Your retailer is half right, the battery is on the motherboard but its attached via a connector and it can be replaced. Here are links to a couple of venders that sell the RTC battery for your laptop: - Http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,L15-S104,Laptop,Batteries-Backup-RTC.aspx - http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-Laptop-motherboard-battery-cmos-L15-S104_W0QQitemZ170060189842QQihZ007QQcategoryZ3666QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
