Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
I need to replace the CMOS battery on a zenith supersport 286e. What is invloved in doing that. Is it a pain to get to or easily accessible? can I also substitute with any 3.6 volt lithium battery? thanks.
1I can give you the basic idea of what you need to do.
I heard fro a guy who was NOT technical that he replaced the battery in a Zenith Superspot 286
(and it was not a problem)
If your computer is losing its time or date settings, or you are receiving a message:
CMOS Read Error,
CMOS checksum error, or
CMOS Battery Failure
first attempt to leave the computer on for 24 hours. In some cases this can charge the battery and resolve your issue. This often resolves CMOS battery related issues when a computer has been left off for several months.
If this does not resolve your issue follow the below steps.
Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer MotherBoard verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed.
Most computers today use a coin 'cell' CMOS battery as shown in the image below.
Just know what you are looking for.
